How to Make Ramen Noodle Soup

You don’t have to wait for your next overseas vacation to try this remarkable Asian delicacy because I will teach you how to make it at home!


Indomie noodles

The advantage of using Indomie noodles is that their natural taste adds to the infusion of aroma and flavor of the other ingredients. It also cooks easily, making it perfect for people who are always on the go. 

You can purchase these at your local Asian grocery store or online to deliver them to your doorstep. The best thing about these noodles is that they were manufactured using the best and healthiest ingredients. Indomie noodles contain B vitamins, iron, and manganese. 

Boneless turkey

The taste of turkey is similar to that of chicken, but it will need more seasoning because of its large size. It’s high in protein and low in fat content which makes it a good alternative for chicken. 

The flavors of the turkey can enhance any dish, especially if seasoned perfectly with herbs and spices. I especially love it in Turkey Pie because of its rich flavor!

Coconut oil

One of the ingredients we will also be using is coconut oil. It’s great for stir-frying meat and herbs because it’s flavorful and gluten-free. It can also influence the overall taste of the soup. 

Herbs and seasoning

The recipe will use onions, garlic, mixed herbs, and sea salt to add flavor. These are also classic ingredients in Asian cuisines, probably one reason soups and stews taste delicious. Instead of using instant flavoring, let’s try these all-natural herbs and spices! 

The chicken stock cubes are perfect for strengthening the flavor of the turkey by adding a tad of chicken flavor. The carrots will be used to add sweetness and vibrant colors to the soup. 

An optional ingredient is the scotch bonnet for a bit of spice. You can omit this ingredient if you plan on feeding the soup to large crowds or children.


  1.  Sautee the garlic and onion and season them with mixed herbs, sea salt, and one crushed chicken stock cube in a frying pan for one minute.
  1. Toss the diced turkey into the pan along with the sauteed ingredients. Sautee until the turkey turns slightly brown. 
  2. Add the remaining diced turkey, garlic, onion, mixed herbs, chicken stock cube, and water.
  3. Cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes or until tender or cooked.
  4. After 10 minutes, check if the turkey is tender and well-seasoned. Add more seasoning if needed. 
  5. Incorporate the carrots and the optional scotch bonnet and cook for another minute.
  1. Add the Indomie noodles and leave to simmer for 2 minutes.
  2. Separate the noodles and simmer for another minute. 
  3. Once content with the flavor, pour the contents into a bowl and serve!

How to Buy and Store Boneless Turkey

  • There is Boneless Turkey Meat that is already available in packages.
  • Make it a habit to check the label if the turkey has been subjected to sodium or broth solutions.
  • Avoid packaged turkey meat with holes and ragged packaging. 
  • Also, pay attention to the “sell by,” “best if used by,” and “use by” instructions to determine which ones are freshest and safest to eat.
  • Inspect the turkey for indications that it has been improperly preserved. 
  • When it comes to storing the turkey, place it in the fridge 1 or 2 days before cooking.
  • If you aren’t cooking it for a few days, put it in the coldest part of your fridge or the freezer.
  • Check if the packaging is sealed to prevent contamination of other food in the fridge.
  • It can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months as long as it is completely wrapped in aluminum foil

How to Make Ramen Noodles

If Indomie Ramen Noodles are unavailable in stores near your home, you can make your noodles from scratch! 

You will need 3 cups of all-purpose flour, a pinch of sea salt, a teaspoon of baking soda, 2 beaten eggs, and half a cup of warm water. 

  1. Whisk the flour, salt, and baking soda together.
  2. Then, add the eggs and warm water.
  3. Once you have your dough, need it for 10 minutes.
  4. Form the dough into a rectangle on a floured surface, cover it with cling film, and refrigerate for an hour. 
  5. Next, divide the dough into six equal portions and flatten each on a floured surface – for this step, you can use your hands until the portions are ½ inch thick.
  6. Rub the portions with flour and feed them on the pasta machine. You can also do this step with a knife and in thin slices. 

For homemade ramen noodles, use them within 18 hours. Otherwise, they will oxidize and turn green. You can store them in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer for future use. The noodles can last up to 3 weeks in the fridge and longer in the freezer. 


To spice up this homemade ramen noodle soup, add an egg, cheese, mushrooms, soy sauce, chili sauce, pepper, and other ingredients you might like! You can also garnish it with onion leeks, spinach, sesame seeds, chopped nori, and corn.

You can also make it creamier by adding Coconut Milk and curry powder for vibrant color and powerful flavor. For a vegan version, replace the turkey with mushrooms and bok choy. You can also substitute chicken, pork, shrimp, or beef for turkey, but note that this will change the soup’s cooking time.
