Indomie fans all over the world are cooking its Mi Goreng today in honour of Nunuk Nuraini, who passed away at the age of 59. While her name might not ring a bell for most, the flavour development manager has been working at Indofood, Indomie’s parent company, for over three decades.

According to Indofood’s statement to Indonesian broadsheet Kompas, Nunuk was the creator of the brand’s most popular flavours, including the wildly popular Mi Goreng. It was famous for its easy-to-cook, reliably delicious formula, which includes very addictive MSG seasoning, onion oil, chilli sauce and crunchy fried shallots.
