instant noodle soup with fish balls : tom yum style

Instant Noodle Soup with Fish Balls: Tom Yum Style

Thai people like “Instant Noodle” especially, Tom Yum Flavour (Mama Tom Yum).

My former assistant loves it and she likes “Fish Balls”. Hence, a fancy version of it.
It may not look/appear to be as “fancy” as you could imagine it to be but, believe me, it’s already fancy as we are talking about “Instant Noodles” Thai way.
If you get to see the way that Thai People really cook it.... they simply add hot-water into it and there is a meal.

I normally love “Noodles” too bits but I can’t really have it as simple as they usually do. I need some Veggies and some Meat. Call me a fussy person.

Find below a very fast and simple recipe of “Instant Noodles Tom Yum Soup”

2 Packages of Instand Noodles Tom Yum Flavour ( Mama or WaiWai depends on your liking)
