You might have packages of instant noodle lying around the kitchen, but the plain noodle might not interest you. Even in the rush hour we need something more than just a quick bite. When I’m busy at work, I hate to eat a cold turkey sandwich or some instant noodle form the cup. I want a good meal but instantly good meal. So what I did in the kitchen when I had a pile of work on the laptop and the household work in front of me. Yes, I go for instant noodle but an upgrade version. And what would I do if I want some good snacks in the middle of the night or late afternoon which are not from the boring packages. I love everything homemade. So we make flat doughnuts!
