What do you need?
Packets of maggi depending on number of people
1 tbs ghee/oil
Pinch of mustard seeds
½ tsp amchoor
Very little Asafetida (hing) based on your taste
1/4 tbs chili powder,
1/2 tbs coriander / dhania powder,
1/4 tbs garam masala,
1 tomato for each packet
1 small onion for each packet
Green chilies (depending on how hot you like it)
Salt and turmeric
Few cloves of garlic
Few pieces of ginger
Small bunch of coriander leaves
And most importantly, lots of curry leaves
How to make it?
Point here is mainly the tadka, the Maggie is no great shakes so put it for boiling on the second flame. In a hot pan, put the Ghee and then add the onions, mustard seeds and curry leaves. After cooking for a while, add all spices and the chopped tomatoes. Once it becomes a course paste, add it to the ready magi. Alternately you can also add the magi at this stage and boil it with the tadka. Mix well, add freshly cut coriander leaves and finally squeeze some lemon juice (optional – I normally don’t do this). The spices may be strong for some people, so you can reduce the quantity.
Your spicy and tadkedar masala maggi is ready! Easy and loved by children and adults alike!
