In this Article I have tried to list all the maggi noodles recipe I have experimented with and successfully finished the bowl of tasteful maggi. Maggi has been my all time favourite for almost every evening when I did not felt like munching on casual tea and biscuits, cookies or any other snack.
When it comes to trying on different variants of maggi, how many of we can think of! There are actually numerous variants of maggi we all have tried. Remember the “Me & Meri Maggi” tagline? it was all about the variants of maggi we all have made all this years since the launch of maggi noodles. Maggi has been very popular among all kids and even elders in India since Nestle launched it in the year 1984. We can imagine how many different variants of maggi we have tried at our visits to friends and cousins and all those times of quick solution for those evening hunger pangs.
A few months back maggi was banned all over India, many of maggi lovers were sad thinking that they may never be able to get their maggi moments back and many were angry because the amount of MSG and lead was found more than permitted by the Food Safety measurements. Well every packed food is unhealthy in a way, so why we blame them when we enjoy doing this unhealthy sin. Now maggi is back and have also launched new spicy flavours for spice lovers, but this is not the main topic here.
I am now going to list all the maggi variants I have experimented, many of them are quick and easy but few of these variant require some time and preparation. Let’s see how many of them you have tried and which ones make you try them after reading this article.

Don’t forget to share which ones you have tried and which one of these tempts you to try in the comment section.
Today I am going to share few recipes of delicious Indian beverages but how can I be simply sharing just recipes of beverages without any twist! I am sharing my favourites and I am not a sweet tooth, instead I am a salt tooth person and these recipes are all savoury ones and also the sour ones..
if we can have the same Maggi with permissible amounts of MSG then why should people react against the move. Anyways now Maggi is available in the market, I am sure it should have made some changes in composition. My concern is , unless some restrictions and stringent laws are not complied then this Indian market would continue to suffer from adulteration.reply 0
The test was held because maggi used to state "No added MSG" and lead was also found to a great extent. I guess the reaction was not against maggi, it was against the false statements. Each packed food should clearly state all the ingredients and we all know instant noodles are not healthy at all still there are statements from various packed food company saying their product are healthy and tasty. Even those wheat based noodles are equally unhealthy because ultimately they are processed and packed, instant oats are also not good for health still they state that its healthy to consume them.0
I liked you recipe for Soupy Maggi. I did try it already but I think I can try by manipulating my generic way to cook maggi in soupy way. At the same time , I did not like the way you advocated maggi against the ban lately imposed in India.reply 0
We must ban all packed food if we actually care about health.. even instant soup and different kind of sauces are as bad as maggi for health, still we consume them and most of us love having pizza from various pizza joints. I feel there is no use to ban one piece of packed or ready to cook food while ignoring all others. :) and thank you. :)0
