2 Minutes Maggi

Do you have craving for maggi? I do that too in the middle of the night!

In my school days when mom made boring food (now I love it) like ghiya toori and tinda I would ask her too cook me maggi with green peas and eat it with chapatti.

All of us have weird taste buds and sometimes we have the most annoying combination of food. I have gf’s who love to eat cheese with sambar- gross isn’t it!!! But they relate to there hostel days with it :).This post might seem dumb or what the hell is this for few people but I decided to blog about maggi. We can’t deny we all have junk food.

Maggi- they have some really cute commercials and as they say everyone has there own story of maggi. Maggi is a big brand with soups, sauces, stock cubes .I can’t think of any Asian country esp. South East Asian that doesn’t carry this brand. Maggi noodles are a big hit – esp. there tag line 2 min noodles!

Maggi noodles recently introduced a new variety of its noodles, to cater for the health conscious like ‘No MSG’, ‘Less Salt’, and ‘No Trans fat’. A whole wheat flour based noodle variation marketed by the name “Vegetable Atta Noodles” has been introduced in India. My personal favourite is Maggie Masala.

My best memories of Maggie – I was living in San Diego then and I was visiting home. I decided to go Vipasana Meditation course with My friend Krishna and her portuguese bf Diego in Dharam Kot(Close to famous His holiness Dalai Lama’s House).having maggi in the mountains has a different feel. May be it’s the water or the chilly weather; I don’t have words to explain. But it was an aesthetic experience having Maggi after 14 days of Satvik one time meal in the meditation camp!

Tell me what are your memories of Maggie??

Ramen Noodles…

Shin Shim Noodles
Shin Shim Noodles

So I watched Kung Fu Panda today and I must say I loved the movie. Unexpectedly I saw so much noodle soup in the movie that I started hankering the same. Came home and decided to make some Noodle Soup. While I was speculating what to add and what to make I saw these packets lying in the pantry. Mom said sister got them for us from Singapore. (available at South Delhi’s market but slightly expensive).Nong Shim- Shin Ramyun .The brand is from Korea…with lots of different flavours like kim chi and also shrimp etc but I decided to go for Spicy Mushroom Flavour-just love mushrooms!!

Sometimes it’s expected because you are a chef you will make exotic foods all the time, true but after a long day of work I don’t mind a meal that’s quick effortless or someone has cooked it for me 😉 Straightforward- the packet had two sachets to add. One with the Spices (like the masala for Maggie noodles) and other with dehydrated vegetables. Boil water add the noodles and the flavours. Come close to the pan and the tangy aroma…yummy! So that was my dinner. Slurping the sauce with noodle was kind of amusing …Fancy the movie and eating it then? A bit pungent and fiery perfect blend of spices! Wish the grocery store near my house would haulage the same ones 🙂
