Indomie Fried Rice

I had been staring at the indomie in my cupboard and wondering what to do differently with it. Suddenly, I asked myself; “has anyone tried to use the seasoning for anything else?” Rice was the first thing that came to mind. I ran to the kitchen and started boiling my rice as fast as I
