22. Maggi – Super Chennai Masala Noodles (Limited Edition)

Thank God these noodles are “Limited Edition”. If you have read the last two reviews, you would know why I am thankful for this.

Even the name is unimpressive for this one. What is “Super Chennai” supposed to mean? Really Maggi?!

And on top of that, the seasoning is a mixture of – tamarind, sambhar powder, mustard seeds and curry leaves. Eh.

Cooking instructions as on the pack

  1. Break the noodle cake into 4 parts.
  2. Add noodles and TASTEMAKER to 210ml (approx 1.5 tea cups) of boiling water.
  3. Cook for 2 minutes in an open pan. Stir occasionally. Do not drain remaining water.

 I don’t even care anymore about the fact that these noodles are better than the original Maggi masala noodles.

 Brace yourself for all the “spices” that are there in the seasoning.

As mentioned at the back of the packet: mixed spices, red chilli, roasted mustard seeds, dehydrated onion, dried curry leaves, coriander powder, dried garlic, turmeric powder, cumin powder, aniseed powder, black pepper powder, fenugreek powder, ginger powder, clover powder, green cardamom powder and nutmeg powder.

Sambhar spice mix further contains: roasted coriander powder, red chilli powder, roasted arhar dal, mustard powder, roasted turmeric powder, fenugreek powder, roasted onion powder, asafetida, black pepper powder, dried curry leaves, salt, cinnamon powder, clove powder, ginger powder, nutmeg powder, large cardamom powder and mace powder.

And contains added flavour!! Also may contain milk solids, soya and mustard.

I cannot believe I actually typed all of the above spices. These are just too many.

 Again, too much of seasoning in comparison to the size of the noodle block.

 Surprising this one is not as bad as the other two I tried before. The seasoning, in spite of its quantity, is not too strong for the noodles. And thankfully this does not taste anything like Sambhar. Also I fail to pinpoint the exact flavour.

I managed four bites of this, but every bite was ruined by these mustard seeds. Not a pleasant experience.
