Instant yet elaborate… sometimes we need to taste something restaurant style but want to cut down on the time. Neither do we want to step out and eat at a restaurant at all times. Like Hakka Noodles or chowmein?
Say when you are watching your favourite show on TV and crave to bing on something delicious and mouth smacking…
We have all grown up with it. In India Maggi is a hot favourite of most kids…and even adults!!!
Instant noodles that needs to be boiled in water with the spice mix or the ever popular maggi masala! that comes with it in the package, is enjoyed in different styles, by different people.
This is one of the very many styles I like relishing my Maggi Instant Noodles…
To whip up a delicious, easy and comforting Maggi chowmein style, heat half tsp of butter and 2 tpsp oil in a tapered pan..
Throw in two small sliced onions and let it saute for a minute. The onions needn’t turn golden brown. Let them be slightly raw or just sauteed and soft.
At this time also, add 10 to 12 diced square potato cubes… Add thinly slit green chillies, pinch of garlic paste, and let it all saute for another minute.
Add the maggi noodles after potatoes turn tender
Sprinkle half tsp black pepper powder.
Stir for few seconds and add few tbsps of water. The water should be sufficient enough to give sufficient wetness to the mix in the pan. We do not want this recipe to be very watery like a normal maggi.
Cover with a lid and let cook for 7 to 8 minutes.
Sprinkle some Italian seasoning for added flavours and some chopped coriander…
