Maggi Noodles loaded with veggies and Egg


I don’t believe I am doing a post on this, but this is how I usually do it at home when its “Noodle night” which is at least once a fortnight or once a month. I love Maggi. Well, who doesnt? Its been a lifesaver in many homes of bachelors and bachelorettes. I cant remember the countless number of times we have had this as a “quick fix”  when we girls huddled gossiping and talking, complaining away into the night or just watching plain television. The noodle gets a makeover depending on who’s making it. I remember one of my roomie making this maggi tempering it with mustard and chillies. Really, nothing to complain about. I also like to have this soupy with a egg poached in it before removing it off the heat. (Saves using another pan as well as the clean up that follows)  If not for the allegations and the controversies surrounding the “chemicals” in the pack , Maggi would be a regular in our homes. This is one of my dear cousin Priya ka’s version. I hope I have done justice to the recipe. This is  reminiscient of her hostel days
