Spicy Masala Maggi Noodles is dedicated to everyone out there who has had a lovely Maggi memory at some point in their lives. It could be your early cooking experiences and feeling accomplished over that first bowl of Maggi. It could also be cooking Maggi in a kettle to escape from ‘mess ka khaana’ (I have had countless days like them. In fact, I still do).Jump to Recipe
My first experiences of cooking were not that rosy; I, like many others, have a history of failed first attempts. For instance, burning the pressure cooker while trying to make pop-corn. Did you have a similar experience? No? Really? Oops!
Anyway, back in the day when I was terrible at cooking, Maggi was the only dish that I could somehow muddle through. But again, who can screw that too up, right? Maggi is synonymous with any instant noodles for many Indians out there, including me. Rarely does a brand take a space in the lives of its consumers as Maggi. And even though the brand has a variety of products – including bouillon cubes, powdered soups, ketchup – in India the word is used almost always to mean the “2-minute noodles”.
Everyone has their favourite Maggi memories and their way of making it. Mine goes back to my school days, making the super spicy version for my friends every time they came over and enjoying it with some strong tea and a marathon of F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
