Maggi Noodles Stir fried with Egg and Vegetables | Kukskitchen

Maggi Noodles Stir fried with Egg and Vegetables | Kukskitchen


Have you seen Robin Williams' 1998 movie called Patch Adams where a frail old wheelchair bound female patient dreams to swim in a swimming pool of noodles before she died. I could easily be that lady when I get old, such is my love for noodles.


If you ask me after a long day at work what I want for dinner I will have one and only one answer - Maggi noodles. Other occasions that I need my maggi to rescue me include when I have a fever, tummy ache, head ache, cold or if I am sad, stressed or worried about something, or if I need to relax or as a mid night snack, the list goes on. You got the picture right ......:)  Luckily some of  the supermarkets in Birminhgam sell the Indian style maggi noodles. A new company has started to create instant noodles as tasty as maggi called Aasani.  My son has taken to it now; however I fear the carb load in it and donot indulge in it as often as I would like, of late. However, I would always have a few packets of Maggi in my food cupboard incase of an emergency. :)

My love for Maggi goes a long way. It started when I was in school. My mum was not a big fan of maggi given all the negative propoganda on social media. We were allowed maggi only as an occasional treat. I also loved noodles from indo-chinese restaurants. My vivid memories are of mixed non-veg noodles from a restaurant in vazhuthakaud called Cafe Magnet, the site later occupied by a coffee chain. OMG they were taty. My mum-in-law knew my love for Maggi and she used to make them for me while I was working a hospital in Palai as an assistant to Physician Dr Joy Francis, who was my perfect foodie company.

The recipe below is an easy way to get your toddlers or older kids to eat veggies. Give this a try mommies..

A few things before we start:
  • When cooking for kids, and/or  you do not want to use the taste maker in the packet provided, then substitute it with a pinch each of red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and garam masala powder.
  • Add any vegetable at all to the flavoured water, cut them up in to small pieces so they cook as quick as the noodles themselves. I like carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, beans and onion.
  • If you like the sauteed taste of crunchy vegetables, instead of adding them to the boiling water, add them to oil in wide pan before scrambling egg.

  1. That's a real twist to maggi... I was a big fan of maggi once but now as a mother reduced it very much...

    1. Dear Akhila

      Me too dear. Reduced the frequency so much. But occasionally we indulge in this high carb treat especially when the dad is not around ;). Beacuse I love it so much, I try to make it as balanced as I can by ading vgetables and protein. If I am making just for myself I have it with Broccoli. Atleast the guilt goes away.

      Nice to see you here.

 I'm Sherin, aka kukku. 

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
