Tomato Juice turns Nissin Cup Noodles Curry into “Spaghetti Naporitan”

When we Japanese think of the brand of instant cup ramen, many people will bring “Nissin Cup Noodles” to mind.In fact, the Nissin Cup Noodles series has the top share in the Japan’s instant noodles market, and the regular products, including Nissin Cup Noodles Soy Sauce ( and Nissin Cup Noodles Seafood (, have been widely enjoyed by Japanese for a long time.

The Nissin’s instant cup ramen has a taste that you never get tired of, but some people like to create a new flavor by combining it with something else.Therefore, if you search for the recipes using Nissin Cup Noodles on the internet offered in Japanese, you can find a bunch of the recipes.

As I shared an unique recipe using Nissin Cup Noodles Soy Sauce the other day, I like to try those recipes.Thus, today I want to try another unique recipe using Nissin Cup Noodles Curry (, a regular flavor of the series.The recipe I try this time was on the official website of Nissin before.

Tomato juice turns Nissin Cup Noodles Curry into “Spaghetti Naporitan” ?!

What I have prepared to try the recipe are only 3 ingredients, that is, Nissin Cup Noodles Curry, 100 % tomato juice (no salt added), and water.

According to the instructions, first I mixed water and 100 % tomato juice in the ratio of 1 to 1, and brought the liquid to the boil.

Since everything was ready, I made Nissin Cup Noodles Curry with the boiling hot diluted tomato juice in a routine way.

I peeled off the lid 3 minutes after I poured the liquid, and what I saw was a noodle dish with a reddish thick soup.It looked kind of like Spaghetti Naporitan, a popular Japanese-style pasta dish.

My review of this recipe

The Naporitan-like noodle dish has a thick, somewhat strong flavor of curry and tomato juice.The flavor of curry is slightly above that of tomato juice.As I expected, the noodle dish tastes like a Spaghetti Naporitan, yes it’s tasty.I think this recipe is worth a try, but whether you prefer the normal flavor of Nissin Cup Noodles Curry or this Naporitan-like flavor is up to you.


I'm Japanese living in Niigata Prefecture,Japan.I want to introduce things about Japan,especially unique Japanese products,sightseeing places,my daily life and Japanese culture.
