Spiced up Maggie Noodles

Who doesn’t love Maggie noodles! Maggie has been a childhood favourite for so many of us. Have it boiled, with veggies and there are so many other ways to make it.

I remember, during one of my official trips to Gurgaon, my team and I would get out of the office and have Maggie noodles made by a man under a single tree next to the building. He cooked up delicious doses of Maggie on a single burner, while his helper kept serving us hot piping Maggie under the meagre shade of a single tree!

We would sit on the walls of the office building and he would serve us the most amazing Maggie garnished with the tastemaker. Corporate officials in business suits and ties were also his clientele who discussed work in great detail over Maggie and standing on the pavement.

Such is life! Maggie was one of the only things that managed to dissolve the corporate barriers and bring people from all the divisions to the same pavement.

I have always tried to experiment with Maggie with a some or the other kind of ingredient in the kitchen. This one is no different. If you have left over sausages, salami or any other cold cuts at home and want to add that zing to your mundane snack, try this.


  • Maggie – 1 pack boiled and strained
  • Maggie Tastemaker – preferably Masala flavour
  • Green chillies – 2 nos.
  • Garlic flakes – 5 – 6 nos.
  • Onion – 1 medium size, finely chopped
  • Black pepper powder – ½ tsp
  • Olive oil – 1tbsp
  • Sausages – 2-3 nos. diced
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Vinegar – ½ tsp
  • Soya sauce – 1 tsp


  1. Heat oil in a non-stick pan and sauté garlic, green chillies and onions until pinkish brown.
  2. Add the tastemaker and the sausages and stir well.
  3. Now add vinegar and soya sauce and mix well.
  4. Transfer the boiled and drained Maggie and fold it into the spice and masala mix.
  5. Add black pepper powder, mix well and serve hot.
