52. Maggi Magic Asia – Curry

First sample of German made instant noodles and another country added to the list! And its none other than Maggi produced in Germany!!

From what I can read on the packet and understand is that this is a “noodle snack” and “curry” flavor the most common word associated with Asian cuisine. And this seems to be mildly spicy as only one red chilli is highlighted out of the total 4.

Also this should be ready in about 4 minutes using hot water!

 Cooking instructions (the best I could do to translate) –

  1. Put the noodles with the seasoning in a small bowl.
  2. Add 300ml of boiling water, let it rest for 4 minutes and stir occasionally.
  3. Tip: add seasoning according to taste.

The only thing I did differently was that I cooked this on the stove.

These are fried wheat noodles and look thinner compared to the Maggi noodle block we get in India.

The seasoning however has an aroma very similar to the Indian version of Maggi masala although this one has a lighter shade. You can also see specks of dried green onions. Or is it leek?

 This does resemble the Indian version of Maggi masala although the noodles are thinner and the “curry” looks weaker.

The noods have a good crumble to them but the curry is way too salty for my liking. I found the broth a little bland as well.

Decided to quickly sauté some mushrooms and chicken sausages in pepper and butter! The mushrooms complement the dish well and the sausages added the much needed flavor! I did manage to finish this bowl though 🙂

However, rating are given on the basis of the original dish.
