Maggi Noodles – the ultimate refuge of a hosteler or a bachelor I must say. To celebrate whatsoever the occasion is we start with “let’s make Maggi first.” I don’t know what seductive ingredient it has, but surely the Nestle India gets a lot of blessings of people especially in India for providing us with a remedy for our hunger pangs, and it’s easy to make!
Well, how many of you had actually made Maggi noodles in two minutes, as Nestle claims? I couldn’t and I would not try to make it in two minutes! Who is going to spoil the real taste? Certainly, I make it in Indian style. But this discussion will come later on (you need to scroll below).
For now, starting the food product review, I want to tell you why I chose Maggi today. I was uncertain of what to write in the reviews. I already have a schedule of all the food products yet I didn’t feel like reviewing them first. I randomly type on Amazon.in “FOOD”, and guess what, it was Maggi in the first place at Rs. 86. I wonder who orders Maggi online?? Really, if you know someone I want to know too. I’m still wondering 😛
Which one I like most out of Oats, Atta and Maggi Masala? I like the Atta Noodles. I give preference to the Maggi Atta Noodles over its other variations.
Why I would recommend you to keep Maggi in you Kitchen closet?
Of course, it’s the ultimate option to fill your stomach when you are in no mood of cooking anything else. I know most of us tried not to miss it when there were remarks about lead content kept rolling on in the news a few years back. Nestle made a move and saved itself as well as us! It tastes quite different from all other noodles present in the market, to name I had tried Yippie noodles and Top Ramens. If I need to rank them I’ll keep Maggie on 1, second place for Yippie and the third for Top Ramens (I, somehow, don’t like it).
Coming to its nutritional value – as mentioned on the Maggi pack, the 70 gm pack of the noodles contain 15% iron. It also constitutes palm oil, an ingredient that reduces cholesterol level, boosts brain health and enhances Vitamin A status. I am not saying it’s a healthy option as Maggi noodles are fried, that’s why the company claims that you can make it within two minutes.
Easy Peasy Indian Style Recipe for Maggi Noodles
There are ‘n’ number of ways in which you can make these Maggi noodles. If you too have a unique recipe and want to share with us here, you can write to me at email@example.com and I will publish it in your name of course.
Here’s the Indian-style Healthy (trying to be) recipe for Maggie Noodles.
In a wok take half tablespoon mustard oil. Heat it for a minute. Add chopped onions; saute till light brown. Add 1/2 teaspoon of ginger-garlic paste and saute for 10 seconds. Add chopped tomatoes and stir fry. Keep the ratio of onions to tomatoes as 1:2. Once the tomatoes soften, you can add veggies like chopped green pepper, green peas, chopped beans, chopped carrots and sliced mushrooms. Adding veggies depends on the availability and your choice. Add noodles, 1/4 teaspoon pickle masala and half of the Maggi masala from the sachet. Saute for a minute on low flame. Add water and the rest of the Maggi Masala, and cover the lid. Let it cook till the noodles get soften. That’s it, Maggi is ready.
I will share the detailed recipe in my upcoming posts.
Tip: Do not let the Maggi rest in the pan, else someone else will eat it! On a serious note, do not let the noodles rest as it becomes puffy. You might not want to eat them. Add more water for soupy noodles.
