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
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.
