After all, they were one of the easiest and best hacks to spruce up the boring bowl of noodles. These hot and spicy noodles have a garlicky flavour and the spring onions and garlic have a certain crunch to them. In India, the penchant for noodles is unmatched. From authentic Asian restaurants to street-side food stalls, everyone is making noodles in their own way. You would hardly find anyone who doesn’t like slurping on a hot bowl of noodles during monsoon. Usually, maggi is synonymous with the concept of instant noodles in the country. Right from the hostel kids who devise ways to cook maggi with a hot kettle to those hawkers who carry their stoves at the top of the hill, only to serve us with pahadon wali maggi.

The immense love and emotion attached with a packet of noodles seems to be quite insane, right? Maggi is a lovable go-to snack to satiate evening hunger pangs and the heart.

Some add chopped vegetables to it while some other spruce it up with all kinds of condiments. However, there are other patrons who like to eat their maggi plain and without too much addition from outside.
