Power Up your Maggi Noodles

Maggi

Maggi Noodles have a special place in the lives and memories of Indian kids, newly minted adults and even full grown adults. There have been summer holiday squabbles with cousins over Maggi, grandparents with unique Maggi creations, the emergency dinners in new big city flats, and a few of us have had the luck of having a Maggi guy at the office food court creating a 5pm snack that was at once a hunger-buster, a nostalgic indulgence as well as a moment of rebellion against the onset of adulthood and its responsibilities.

Once such Maggi guy we’ve come across used to create dishes with paneer, cheese, fresh vegetables, soy sauce, chili sauces, and even a mysterious mix of ‘italian’ herbs. Whatever the combination, he never disappointed. And now we’ve just recently discovered another bunch of Maggi enthusiasts in Powai.

The folks over at Hungry Head have an extensive menu that revolves around Maggi. There are a number of noodle creations of which we tried and quite enjoyed the Aglio Olio and Khow Suey. There are a few other items on the menu we definitely want to go back and try and we wish them the best for this fun venture.

Now if you, like a few others, have started to feel like you might need a little more from mealtimes than Maggi noodles offer, don’t despair. You can still let yourself enjoy a bowlful of nostalgia if you power up your noodles with these variations.

Soy Sauce Style

Saute onions and any combination of vegetables you like, add salt, pepper, chili flakes and a few splashes of a good soy sauce, as much water as needed to cook the noodles and leave enough of a soup to get a silky slurp with every bite. Cook the noodles for 2-3 minutes with the masala pack. Optional: toss in bits of paneer for the last minute the noodles are cooking.

Buttery Delicious

Saute onions and any combination of vegetables you like, add salt, pepper, chili flakes. Add as much water as needed to cook the noodles and not leave much of a sauce. Cook the noodles for 2-3 minutes with the masala pack. When it’s all done, add a nice bit of butter and swirl it through your noodles. You won’t regret it.

Egg Noodles

Cook your noodles as you normally would, but add an egg after 1 minute of cooking the noodles and stir so the eggs scramble and you can eat a delicious bowl of egg noodles, Maggi style.

Experiment with these varieties or create your own and share with us!

  1. Cook regular maggi, chop crispy fried bacon and ham into little bits and add them as you serve.

    Or if you prefer you could fry an omelette and add it along with shredded chicken topped off by grated cheese.

    Enjoy.
