Spicy Maggi Noodles

spicy maggi noodlesMaggi is one of the comfort foods that is best enjoyed hot and slightly soupy. It can be had just by itself for a quick no fuss snack but since I was having this for my lunch, I added some green peas and tomatoes along with some boiled eggs. It is filling and satisfying this way. I know packaged noodles are not the healthiest but once in a while I am okay for my body to take the beat.

There are several ways people like to eat their Maggi and every family has their own version just like tea. I like to keep mine simple with just Garam masala. I have added green peas which you can totally skip if you do not have. But tomatoes are a must for me. It gives the maggi some thickness and soupy consistency. It also adds a hint of sourness along with garam masala, which makes the dish flavorful. I also break the noodles a bit before adding into the pan, it just makes it easier to eat and cooks faster too.
