Introduction: Noodle Burger - Hair Dryer Hack

About: A Software Engineer. I love learning new things. Hooked up with Instructables. It is the biggest find I ever made. :D Cooking and Crochet are my passion. I love to learn different techniques and cuisines.

Dorm students! Here is a big treat for you. Tiered of the same Ramen noodles? Want some Burger for the dinner? Be a little adventurous! Why order when can make some in your dorm. Be little crazy with the few equipment you have and allowed to use in your room.

In short I can call this instructable as "Kettle and Hair Dryer Hack". We can dry foods with hair dryer. Nearly anything that needs to be cooked on low heat or requires melting can be made with a hair dryer.

So come along to see how to make delicious and inexpensive Burger in your dorm with just an Hair Dryer and kettle. This is real fun and crazy way to have a Pizza and stun your room mates.

Step 1: Ingredient

Cooking Time - 15 minutes

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Serves - 2

Dorm Life starts with saving money too. I have listed down the ways I have made this recipe inexpensive.


Noodles - 1 pack

Egg - 1/2

Green Bell Pepper - 1/4 Cup

Onion - 1/ Cup

Water - 3/4 to 1 Cup(Just enough to cover the noodles)

Italian Seasoning - 2 Tsp

Tomato Sauce (Ketchup) - 1/4 Cup


Grated Carrot - 1/2 Cup

Salt - As Required

Pepper - 1/4 Tsp

Vinegar - 1/2 Tsp

Aluminium Foil

Hair Dryer




Step 2: Heat Water

Take a kettle. Pour water above the minimum level.

Now close the lid and switch on the kettle. In my kettle I have a red light indication. Once the light goes it shows my water has boiled. Transfer 3/4 cup of water in a cup and add some salt to it. Mix it well.

Step 3: Egg

Break an egg into a bowl. Whisk it well. Keep it aside.

Step 4: Noodle Time

Now in a small heat resistant bowl/box transfer the noodle. Do not crush it. This is because we need a Pizza base.

Now add the hot water with salt we had made into the bowl. Add water such that the noodle is just immersed in it. Add whisked egg in drops (drizzle) with the help of a spoon. With help of aluminium foil cover the box. Let it stand for 10 minutes. By this time the egg will be cooked along with the noodles. The noodles was perfectly cooked and the egg drops were perfectly cooked in the boiling water. The aluminium foil had trapped the heat and cooked it well. Since egg in drops and noodles cook really fast we can use this method. Drain the excess water.

Note: Don't add entire whisked egg as the heat inside the aluminium foil will not be sufficient to cook the egg. If you add in drizzles like how you do for egg drop soup you will get perfectly cooked egg.

Step 5: Italian Seasoning

Add some Italian seasoning to the cooked noodles. Bring them together

Step 6: Hair Dry

make few circles out of the cooked noodles. That will form the two bases (Buns) of the burger.

Now use a plate or foil below. Switch on the hair dryer. Keep it on a medium heat level and hover it over the noodle. It will become dry and crispy.

We can dry foods with hair dryer. Nearly anything that needs to be cooked on low heat or requires melting can be made with a hair dryer.

Step 7: Filling

I have made the filling very simple here. I took some grated carrots, vinegar, salt and pepper. I placed the filling over one base. Added little tomato ketchup.
