Slurrp Farm Millet Noodles – Detailed Review
The following section details our experience with these millet noodles.
Price & Packaging
The noodles are offered in a non-resealable pack and the tastemaker is individually packed in another sachet which is also in the larger pack. A 192-gram pack (approximately 3 servings) is priced at Rs 129/- and has a shelf life of nine months.
Noodles- Supergrain blend (97%- foxtail millet flour, whole wheat flour), cluster bean powder (natural gum), salt.
Spice mix- Coriander seeds, red chilies, onion powder, garlic powder, ginger powder, turmeric, curry leaves, fennel seeds, black pepper, cassia, fenugreek, star anise, clove, nutmeg, salt, unrefined sugar cane, and citric acid (INS 330)
Foxtail millet- is a gluten-free, protein-rich millet that is a powerhouse of minerals and vitamins. Calcium, iron, protein, fiber, and fats- this millet is a superfood.
Cluster beans – are rich in fiber and potassium that enhance blood flow and improve overall heart and bone health. The powder is used as a thickener and stabilizer in the food industry.
Calorie composition per 100 grams-
Slurrp Farm- 392 Kcal, 72 g of carbohydrates, 12.6 g of protein, 0.6 g of fat.
Refined wheat instant noodles- 398 Kcal, 59 g of carbohydrates, 8 g of protein, and 13.6 g of fat.
Though the caloric values are similar, Slurrp Farm is lower in fat and higher in proteins. Moreover, foxtail millet is more nutritious as compared to refined wheat flour.
How we made it
We followed the instructions on the pack. The noodles were boiled in 500 ml of water. Once drained, we sauteed some veggies (onions, capsicum, carrots) in two tablespoons of oil with the tastemaker. Then we added the noodles to this mix, tossed the contents, and it was served hot.
Taste & Texture
First things first, these noodles were cooked to perfection within the specified time (4 minutes). The noodles turned soft, but they did not wilt. They retained a firm bite. The noodles were definitely not as soft as refined wheat flour noodles.
PS- we checked the noodles 4-5 hours post cooking and they retained the non-sticky, separated texture. Thumbs up as it makes a tiffin-friendly meal.
The tastemaker was super aromatic, like garam masala combined with chicken masala. The tastemaker was flavorful but had a low-medium spiciness which again makes this suited for kids. Taste-wise, you cannot really identify that these noodles are millet-based, but getting accustomed to the texture may take some time.
- This is a quick-cooking, convenient meal option.
- Thumbs up for the clean ingredient list.
- It is quite economical, considering the nutrition profile.
- The tastemaker is flavorful.
- We LOVED the texture.
Always find yourself craving some warm noodles? Here’s how you can make a more nutrient-dense choice with Slurrp Farm.
2. Little Millet
Price & Packaging
Slurrp Farm’s Little Millet noodles are packed in a non-resealable green pack. The tastemaker sachet is inside the pack. The net quantity is 192 grams and this is priced at Rs 129/- with a nine-month shelf life.
Noodles- Super grain blend (97%- little millet flour, whole wheat flour), cluster bean powder (natural gum), salt.
Tastemaker- Coriander seeds, red chillies, onion powder, garlic powder, ginger powder, turmeric, curry leaves, fennel seeds, black pepper, cassia, fenugreek, star anise, clove, nutmeg, salt, unrefined cane sugar, citric acid (INS 330).
Little millet flour- is rich in magnesium and niacin, both that contribute towards lowering cholesterol. This is gluten-free and hence, easy on the gut.
How we made it
We prepared this variant similarly.
Taste & Texture
When the noodles were raw, they looked thicker than the first variant. To put into perspective, these noodles are longer than vermicelli but shorter than regular noodles. Once cooked, the noodles were not springy but they were non-sticky and separated. The noodles had a comparatively different mouthfeel, they were chewier.
The noodles (when we tasted them without the tastemaker and veggies) had a bold nutty, earthy taste that millets are known for. The tastemaker had a warm flavor profile, owing to the spices and seasoning. That said, it wasn’t too spicy or overwhelming which makes it a good option for kids and those with a low spice tolerance. The balance of salt was apt.
- The ingredient list and nutrition profile get a green light.
- The texture was desirable.
- We quite liked the flavors too (easily customizable)
