34. Maggi Hot Heads – Piri Piri Noodles

I have finally managed to get my hands on the least spicy flavor of the “Hot Heads” line by Maggi. I wasn’t able to find a small pack of this flavor and I wasn’t willing to risk buying the bigger pack since I wasn’t too impressed by the other three flavors.


Quite surprised that this flavor is the least spicy since Piri piri is the Swahili word for ‘pepper pepper’ and one of the sources of chili pepper ! The heat is supposed to be intense.

Let’s hope this at least mildly hot!


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.


Standard original Maggi noodle block and trust me that’s good news!

The seasoning looks pretty threatening with a deep red color. One can also spot few chilli flakes and dehydrated onion chunks. The seasoning smells like a mixture of onions, garlic and capsicum.


Mildly spicy, slightly tangy and really good noodles! I liked the fact that there was a good amount of onion and garlic flakes.


Had to add cheese to cut the tangy taste. And what a brilliant idea! Although cheese makes EVERYTHING better but in this case, the cheese elevated these noods like nothing else ever can. You know what I mean?

Definitely my favorite out of the four Hot Heads flavors!


Pro Tip: One cheese slice is enough. And DO NOT put the cheese in while its cooking.

Rating: 4/5

 (PS – after adding that one slice of cheese, these noods are 5/5!)
