Japanese design studio Nendo has developed a 'cup noodle matryoshka': a special souvenir designed dor Nissin Cup Noodles Museum in Yokohama.
Taking the instant noodle brand's iconic packaging, Nendo has devised a matryoshka-like container which opens up to reveal subsequent vessels within: each one stands in as one component ingredient of ramen noodles, finished with a color / look that relates to the contents it is meant to contain.
Dal is one of those recipes that goes all the way back to the Indus Valley Civilisation. Unlike dishes such as biryani, brought to India by the Moghuls, it is one of those foods that has always been there. It is therefore a building block of Indian culture.
