Veg Maggi Masala Noodles Recipe – Let me know if you have not heard about “maggi noodles”. To my knowledge, I have not found an adult in Indian subcontinent who has not heard of maggi. I am sure the word, maggi, would bring images of curly noodles in front of your eyes. Maggi is a household name for many and specially if you are a student, you know how much of a saviour this maggi has been. Ready in minutes, and tasty, that’s maggi.

What is maggi?

Maggi is an branded noodles from Nestle company. These noodles are more widely know as instant noodles. Maggi brand has other products like soups, ketchup, too, however nothing comes closer to instant noodles in terms of popularity.

Origin of Maggi

According to wiki, maggi was originated in Switzerland in 1984 by Julius Maggi and hence the name.

Maggi Masala Noodles


Normally maggi noodles can be easily made by popping the contents of maggi packet in boiling water and leaving on heat for 2 mins, however I prefer maggi with vegetables. I call my maggi as veg maggi masala noodles. I top my usual noodles with vegetables to add more nutrition as well as make it look aesthetically better.

As far as my memory goes, I remember having maggi in kitchen. My mum has never been a fan of maggi, however, I loved it from my childhood and now my kids love maggi ramen.

I would think that if someone who has grown up in Indian subcontinent will have a story to share about maggi, likely from their student days. It is such an easy recipe that anyone who does not know cooking, they can also make maggi with closed eyes.

Ingredients for maggi masala noodles

Key ingredients here are

  • Maggi – Maggi masala noodles can not be without maggi? Can it be? As a substitute, you may use plain noodles from other brands. Because, its veg maggi masala, I use veg noodles from maggi. You can use alternatives as per taste.
  • Vegetables – For veg noodles, we need vegetables, such as green peas, bell pepper, onion, etc.
  • Maggi Masala – I use the masala packets which is found in the maggi noodles packet.
  • Additional spices – I use red chilli powder, turmeric and salt too for additional flavouring.

Method to make veg maggi noodles

  • Keep 2 cup of water in a pan for boiling. Once it starts boiling, add Maggie keeping the Masala packet aside.

  • Maggi would be boiled by this time. Pour it into a colander so that all extra water drains and then pour 1 cup of cold water over it. This step helps in removing the stickiness of Maggie. Let water drain for 2 more minute.
  • Add Salt, turmeric powder and red chilli powder to the sautéed vegetables and sauté again for a minute. Now add boiled Maggie and start sautéing it so that it can mix well with the vegetables.

Pro Tips

  • Chicken Maggi – For non-vegetarians, they can add chicken pieces in this maggi. Cut the chicken breast into small pieces of 1 inch and pre-boil for 7-8 mins and add those pieces in the noodles at the same time when vegetables are added.
  • Add vegetables you like – You may add other season vegetables in the maggi noodle, such as cabbage, lettuce, etc. Make sure that the vegetable you adding is cooked well.
  • Opt for whole wheat flour maggi as a relatively healthier alternative.
  • Do not boil noodle for longer than stated in the recipe, else noodles will break.
  • You can skip the process of boiling Maggi separately. For this, add 1.5 cups of water  to the sautéed vegetables and then add Maggie, and cook till all the water evaporates. I have made Maggi with both the recipes, somehow I like it more when boiled separately.

This Maggi noodle is

  • Super easy to make
  • Loved by masses and is a crowd pleaser
  • Super quick to make and requires minimal ingredients
  • Can be consumed in any meal of the day, from breakfast to dinner
