From Pancakes To Parathas: 5 Wild Maggie Recipes I've Tried That You've Got To Recreate

When was the first time you had Maggi?

Err... Who knows? Haven't most of us been eating this warm bowl of comfort since forever? Well, I have. Truth be told, I even had it for lunch today! Yes, I *am* aware that we shouldn't eat Maggi every day, but wouldn't the world be a better place if we could?

My love for this unbeatable dish grew even stronger when I started living in a hostel during my college days. From saving me from the disaster known as mess ka khana to giving me company during my late-night gossip sesh with BFFs, Maggi has been a constant in my life. 

If it isn't already obvious, I'm a self-proclaimed ~connoisseur~ of Maggi and have legit tried every recipe that can possibly exist. It all started when I added ketchup on it (don't @ me because it is going to get better/weirder) and discovered that Maggi was possibly the most versatile snack that mankind ever invented. Fir kya tha, I put on the chef's hat and tried different Maggi variations that generations to come will cherish forever.

Don't believe me? Then check out these wild Maggi recipes that I tried and thank me later!

5 Of The Wildest Maggi Recipes That You'll Ever Come Across

No offence to the OG recipe, but who doesn't like a little bit of twist and tadka in their good ol' fashioned steaming bowl of Maggi? Check out these offbeat recipes and try all of them ASAP 'cus they're super yumm!

Burger Maggi

Remember how we sometimes brought Maggi in our lunchbox to school and had it while it was all frozen and sticky? One fine day, while craving for the same unbeatable taste, I ended up storing Maggi in a small rectangular lunchbox in my refrigerator. A brilliant idea clicked soon after and it was then when I decided that my frozen Maggi was meant to be a burger instead.

Ingredients:

  • Maggi
  • Boiled Potatoes
  • Sliced Onion, Tomato, Lettuce
  • Cheese

Method:

  • Freeze some pre-cooked Maggi in a lunchbox in the refrigerator
  • After a few hours, cut the frozen Maggi block in two halves
  • Place lettuce leaves on one of the Maggi blocks
  • Fry an aloo patty and place it above the lettuce
  • Place onion and tomato slices on top of the patty
  • Place a cheese slice on top of the veggies
  • Complete the burger with the remaining Maggi block

P.S. You can also deep fry the frozen Maggi if you want to take it up a notch!

Maggi Parantha

This is the parantha that even Delhi's famous Paranthe Wali Gali does not offer! You might have heard about aloo, gobhi, and dal parantha, but did you ever try making Maggi parantha? I did, and it was epic! NGL, it takes some effort because cooking a round parantha ain't everyone's cup of tea. But trust me guys, you'll get there!

Maggi Cake

I'll be honest, I tried this recipe as a prank but it turned out quite tasty in the end! Remember how we all do stupid stuff when we're in hostel? That's what I did to surprise my roommate on her birthday. I cooked her an unconventional cake with whatever food supplies we had in our closets (think: Oreo biscuits, Hershey's syrup, bananas, and more). Interestingly enough, the birthday girl loved it and so did I. Think you're going to love it too? No harm in trying!

Ingredients:

  • 3 packets of Maggi
  • Chocolate Syrup
  • Fruits of your choice

Method:

  • Cook the Maggi and keep it in a bowl.
  • Once it cools, take it out on a plate without disturbing its shape.
  • Pour chocolate syrup all over it.
  • Decorate it with your favourite fruits. Ideally, choose strawberries and bananas.
  • Insert some candles and your cake is ready!

Wasn't that easy as well as bizarre? Well, let us know which one you're going to try!
