Maggi ~ Weekend breakfast

Saturday's always have a strange effect on me. I get super lazy to get up and make something for breakfast. Today morning hubby decided that he would make Maggi for breakfast. 
I was introduced to maggi in my school days. We used to have competitions in school sponsored by Maggi and all the participants would get a packet of maggi! Back then my brother used to make it and only I and he ate. My amma has never tasted maggi (though she does enjoy Pizza's, noodles are something that she has never tasted!). Dad too is not very fond of maggi but if I  do make Indo-Chinese noodles then he does have it with us. My aunt used to make this with lots of veggies. But when my cousins tasted plain maggi at our place they too stopped eating it with veggies! Growing up,We loved the taste of the veggies in maggi and started adding them in our noodles and our aunt always blamed us for teaching our cousin's to eat without veggies :P 
We have a lot of versions of making maggi and it is always made with veggies. Today I was out of stock and had only Onion and frozen green peas. 
This is how he made it:
2 packets of maggi (95 gm each) with its taste maker
1 medium Onion sliced
1/4 cup thawed green peas
1 tsp Kitchen King masala or more depending on your taste
Salt to taste
Olive Oil
Water 500 ml
Chopped coriander leaves for garnishing
1) Boil water in a vessel. In the mean time, heat Oil and add sliced Onions. Fry until golden brown.
2) Add Kitchen king masala powder and green peas and fry for a min.
3) Pour the water and add in the noodles. When half done add the taste makers and check with the salt. If you prefer a little spicy you may add a little bit of Chilli powder.
4) When completely done dress with finely chopped coriander leaves and serve hot!
P.S: Adding a small Tomato enhances the taste even further. I also stir fry Capsicum that gives it a nice crunch. Do feel free to add any veggies of your choice. 

Update: PJ wants to now "who's gonna cook for me"??. I say hubby!! If you have someone who can cook for you. Please do send the recipes with pics over to PG..More details at her blog.

This was my staple food when I was in Bangalore. It almost sucked the health of 2 lives from me. I am sure you are a good Girl, but still a word of advice : _Dont_get_addicted_ :-)

I am sure you must be heaving a healthier recipe for this :)

Do try it and let me know if you like it.

Using leftover subzi is a good idea. I too used to love having it with tomato ketchup. Good you reminded me. Next time I will have with tomato ketchup. Been a long time .

My daughter has suddenly developed a taste for Maggin noodles these days and adding veggies to it is one way to ensure she gets some of her veggies in.:)
And they actually have a Maggi stand at their school now!!

Namrata Kini said...

I love all the varieties of Maggi except for the atta noodles. So I use atta noodles when i make it with veggies and the rest of the varieties i have it plain. Recipe is similar to urs. Migele ammanai aaji tai maggi khayni. But then she hasn't yet tasted lots of other things too.
