Maggi and me. A long story to compile. The first intro to Maggi was given in the school St. John’s Chennai where Maggi people introduced this and gave us many stickers and things to remember Maggi. My mother used to give Maggi as a special treat . The Indian version has an unique flavor and composition. The Singapore part is a little bit oily and can be eaten as soup style. Anyhow i like both but for health reasons i don’t indulge in it. In my house Maggi means my husband is cooking and it is for three of them. Rarely, when nothing is for dinner i join them. Yesterday happened to be a bore day and i was yearning to do something for my Husband who is at home (chicken pox). To ensure him a good taste for his tongue i thought of making something unique . Then i remembered the only packet of Maggi lying in the cabinet . One of my friend many years had taught me this recipe . i Thought of bringing it back.Now for the recipe.
Maggi noodles -1 packet
Gram Flour -1/2 cup
Rice flour -1/2 cup
