Maggi Mischief!!




To begin with I insist that cook while you listen to soft music...it helps , really!
Here’s my very first recipe.......let me be clear guys...I am not a great chef yet....so these are simple yet tasty recipes....some i have invented myself, some I have read somewhere and tried!!
One ordinary day when I had nothing at home which seemed interesting, all I could find was a packet of Maggi noodles. And to be frank I was really bored to just fill up my stomach coz I was hungry.
So I cooked p an idea ;) Well I opened my fridge and to my pinch of delight I found one capsicum and one carrot! And my mind worked up a recipe...to my luck it tasted great.....not only me....folks at home liked it too !!

Recipe serves 2

Oil

2 packets of Maggi with the masal that comes along with it

1 onion choped in long & thin pieces

I capsicum cut in long & thin pieces

1 carrot grated finely

1 teaspoon of jeera
Cheese (it depends on how much you like it...i add loads J)

Tomato ketchup

Oregano

Crushed red chilles ( you can use left out chilli flakes of Dominos!!)

Cook the Maggi noodles like you generally cook Maggi (2 minute J) noodles, once cooked, drain the water and sprinkle some cold water on it so that they dont become sticky. Keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan, add jeera , fry till a nice brown colour, then add chopped onion, fry till light brown in colour, add grated carrot and chopped capsicum, dont put lid on it, let it cook it for a while , let it partially fry, dont cook it too much, it should be chewy and crispy, then add the maggi ready made masala and some ketchup (maybe a tbspn) mix all ingredients well, add cheese, it maybe cut in big pieces, it is going to melt anyway, mix it well, now lastly add the cooked noodles and again mix it. Let it cook for a minute, so that it blends well with the gravy. Sprinkle some oregano & crushed red chillies.
Your hot and tasty noodles are ready......this is a very simple recipe, but those who are tired of eating the same old maggi noodles should try it.....its yum!!!
