Another Kind Of Maggi

Maggi instant noodles are popular in many countries like India , Bangladesh, Pakistan and Singapore. Here’s a fun fact I found out while researching about maggi – did you know in India, Maggi Masala noodles carry a green dot, indicating that they are specifically formulated to serve vegetarians.

Necessity is the mother of invention. This recipe happened because I was left with some maggi blocks and no tastemaker that comes with it. I had used up the masala packets for ‘other ‘ things. Maggi masala is so flavorful and can be used in a ton of other things did you know? The fried chili crisp adds a crunchy punch and the pickled jalapeños gives the dish a slightly sour taste. It’s an amalgamation of many different flavors working together @sarchakra
