Street Style Maggi Noodles!

Our 'Bakasoor Kitchen' is celebrating 100,000 page views! Yay!

Let me take a moment and thank all my readers for taking time out to read my ramblings. Your emails and comments make me feel really special. This little hobby of mine, which started off as a means to stay sane while going through a tough time in my life, has given me so much more than what I hoped for. Oh I could go on and on... but let us cut the drama and put on our aprons, as that is what this blog is all about. 

Snapping back into the food world, does watching rain make you hungry? I sure crave something warm and soupy on rainy days. I always want to head back home, drag my chair to a large window, wrap myself in a large blanket and slurp on some warm comfort food. There is something really peaceful, cleansing and comforting in watching and hearing heavy rainfall. No. 1 reason of getting home sick in June. Well my folks are reading my blog these days so let's make it No. 2 reason for getting home sick...
California rains suck! They are over even before you notice that it was raining. So a quick rain, calls for a super quick comfort snack and maggi noodles has quick and comfort written all over it. So let us jazz up these noodles a little and rush to watch the rainfall.

Level: Easy
Serves: 2 people (1 noodle cake per person)


Ingredients:
2 packets maggi (I use masala flavor)
3 cups water
1 small onion, roughly chopped
1 small tomato, roughly chopped
2 tblsp green peas
3/4 tsp red chilly powder/2 green chillies
1/8 tsp salt or to taste
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garam masala (any mixed spice will work) - optional
1/2 tsp chaat masala
1 tblsp coriander leaves, roughly chopped
2 tsp oil

Method:
Step 1 - Microwave cook the green peas in a small bowl with 1 tblsp water for 2 mins or till the peas are cooked. Keep aside.

Step 2 - Heat oil in a small pan. When the oil heats up add the onions and saute till they turn transparent. This should take just 2 mins.

Step 3 - Add the tomatoes, red chilly powder/green chillies, salt, pepper and garam masala. Mix well and cook till the tomatoes soften up. Turn off the heat. Add coriander leaves, mix well and keep aside.

Step 4 - In another pot, heat 3 cups of water and add in the maggi tastemaker sachets that come along with the maggi cakes. Once the water boils, add in the noodles and cook till they are done and the water is soaked up. Do not dry out the maggi too much.

Step 5 - Mix the peas from step 1 and the onion-tomato mixture from Step 3 into the cooked noodles. Sprinkle chaat masala over it and serve immediately.

Maggi is best enjoyed hot or warm. It gets too glu-like once you let it sit. So cook only when you are ready to eat.

Enjoy and thank you all once again for all your support.
