Maaggi Instant Noodles

Does Maggi Actually Cook In 2 Minutes?

According to Nestlé’s claims, MAGGI Noodles is a part of about 70% of urban Indian households and with more than 2.5 Bio serves that are consumed by people every year (2x Indian population). Honestly, we are not surprised, are we? Maggi for us Indians is an emotion, and what more, it is also gaining popularity among foreigners.

We have all grown up watching the ‘Made in 2 minutes’ commercials of Maggi but we all know it’s practically not possible. Making plain Maggi requires at least 10 minutes, for the flavours to actually combine well with the noodles. Making fusion Maggi, on the other hand, either with vegetables, meat, or cheese definitely requires a little more time as the ingredients need to cook well.

Unfortunately, non of this can really happen within 120 seconds. Irrespective of the cooking time, Maggi will always be the go-to food for children, college students, broke hostlers, bachelors, or just about anyone. Here are 2 fun fusion recipes of Maggi:
