Every hosteller or student who has studied outside his hometown knows about this. Make Maggi the usual way and place it in between two toasted slices of bread.

P.S. Go for brown bread while making this and a piece of advice-rub butter and a clove of garlic on the toast for the zingy taste.

This is not as easy as it looks like. A bit tedious to make, this is a desi variant of Minestrone basically. Chop carrots, celery, onions and vegetable stock. Fry the veggies in regular oil. Add vegetable stock, and simmer till half in volume. Add the Maggi and the Masala. Cook till the Maggi is done. Om nom nom!

6. Chicken Maggi

This is not the usual Chinese vendor noodles with chicken. This is completely desified. Get tandoori Chicken from your local restaurant. Separate the meat from the bones. Make Maggi and add chicken. Tandoori Maggi, anyone?

7. Prawn Maggi

Since fresh prawn is not available everywhere, buy a packet of frozen prawns, which is easily available in any super market. Fry the prawns and add it to the Maggi.

8. Tomato Maggi

The regular way of doing is adding chopped tomatoes in the Maggi but if you want to tinkle your taste buds use tomato concassé.

P.S. – Tomato concassé can be made by slitting tomatoes and dropping them in simmering water for a minute or two. De-skin the tomatoes and remove all the seeds. Chop the de-skinned tomatoes; add white pepper and salt. What you get is tomato concassé.

9. Salsa Maggi

This is probably the best variation for all the loners. Add any gravy from last night in the Maggi – be it the Kadai gravy, Shahi gravy or Korma gravy. Boil the Maggi without the Maggi Masala.

All you need is a deep pan filled with vegetable oil. Add cooked Maggi in the pan. Be very careful while doing so because the oil might splash back.
