Saffola Oodles Yummy Masala Review – Yummazing Ring Noodles
Saffola Oodles are truly a masaledaar feast! These ring-shaped noodles are made using oats flour, and semolina.
Saffola, a brand associated with cooking oil in India, branched out into the world of oats a few years ago. From there stemmed many instant masala oats flavors, which have been popular throughout the country. Saffola also has a range of green coffees and ‘hi-protein’ soup meals which we reviewed earlier.
A new addition to Saffola’s instant range is the Saffola Oodles. As the name suggests, these are instant ring shaped ‘noodles’ made using oats. We picked a bag of Saffola Oodles to check it for its taste, texture, shape, and list of ingredients. Here is our Saffola Oodles Yummy Masala Ring Noodles Review.
Are the Saffola Oodles ring noodles all fun and no flavor? Let’s find out how these no-maida oodles perform in our taste test? This section discusses our experience with the Saffola Oodles.
Instant food, especially noodles, can trump each other with just one factor – Taste. Do the Saffola Oodles have the potential to replace your regular maida instant noodles?
As we know, a tastemaker can make or break a pack of instant noodles. The Saffola Oodles have just the right portion of masala that is extremely delicious. The tastemaker to noodle ratio is perfect, and it doesn’t feel too less or too much. The salt content and spice levels are very well balanced.
The tastemaker also has small pieces of dehydrated carrots that taste fresh and have a mild crunch. We couldn’t see any onions but could indeed taste them very well.
As per the ingredient list, the ring noodles are made using oats flour, semolina, and wheat gluten. They do not contain maida. If you make these for someone and not tell them that they are partially made using oats, no one can tell the difference.
The list of ingredients of Saffola Oodles are –
Oodles – Oats flour (39.4%), Semolina (36.7%), Edible vegetable oil (rice bran oil and sunflower oil), Wheat gluten, Iodized salt.
Masala mix – Spices and condiments (onions, cumin, turmeric, clove), dehydrated vegetables (onions, and carrots), sugar, spices. Contains natural colors, added flavors.
3. Shape and Size
The Saffola Oodles are ring-shaped noodles. These aren’t too large or small. After cooking, they swell up and increase in size a little bit.
The texture of the oodles is very similar to your regular maida instant noodles. These aren’t thicker or fibrous, but smooth and soft.

The differentiating factor in Saffola Oodles is the fact that these are not made using maida. They are made using oats flour and semolina, which are healthier alternatives to refined flour. In addition, this does contain wheat gluten, so this is not a gluten-free product.
Another fun element is the shape of the noodles. Unlike all other flat or round-shaped noodles available in the market, these are ring-shaped.
