7. Maggi – Hot Heads – Chilli Chicken Noodles

Few months back Nestle launched its new sub brand of instant noodles – Maggi ‘Hot Heads’ in 4 exciting flavors with the aim to appeal young adult. Following are their flavors in increasing order of spiciness – Piri Piri, Barbeque Pepper, Chilli Chicken and Green Chilli! This young adult is excited for sure! 😀

 I wanted to try the chilli chicken flavor first for obvious reasons – chilli and chicken. And it’s supposed to be the second spiciest flavor from this range. #mypunjabigenesarehappy

Priced at Rupees 22/-, it’s almost double the price of original Maggi masala. Let’s see if it is worth it.

Cooking instructions as on the packet- add noodles and tastemaker to boiling water (1.5 teacups; 210ml). Cook for 2 minutes in an open pan. Stir occasionally.

 The noodles block looks exactly the same as the original Maggi noodles. So the seasoning must be the game changer.

Interesting!

 Definitely has a strong spicy aroma with a few dehydrated chunks of chicken and onions in there. The color is pretty threatening though!

 Firstly, this is just decently spicy. The TV commercials are completely misleading because I was expecting an explosion in my mouth. And secondly, nothing chilli chicken-y about it. I am half Punjabi and I know what my Indianised version of chilli chicken is supposed to taste like. This also had a very strong tomato flavor for my liking. :/

The cooked noodles do look sort of unspectacular with little specks of (not so well hydrated) chicken in it. Texture of the noodles is average. For double the price of original Maggi, Hot Heads Chilli Chicken is unimpressive.
