Vegetable masala maggi noodles | maggi masala is one of the most loved kids food. Maggi noodles is another easiest snack you can make for your kids any time. My kid is a big fan of my masala maggi. So I do make this very often. Honestly I’m a die hard fan of maggi in any form since childhood.
But here since I add lots of vegetables I’m assured that my son eating vegetables also along with these noodles.
Is maggi good food for kids?
Maggie is made with refined flour and hence not good as everyday food. But occasionally we can make them for our kids. Kids love maggi. So we can try and incorporate lots of healthy food and vegetables to this maggi.
You can make this for your kids tiffin box also which will be equally tasty and non-sticky for hours.
How to make non-sticky maggi?
Traditionally maggi is boiled in water and the taste maker spices. But now what I’m doing is I just boil it in water for some time and then remove the water and wash it off with regular water. So in this way half of the carb content is being washed off.
Also when you only boil them it becomes sticky when cold. So taste also differs and we can’t give that to our kids. Rather when you saute them in oil with added veggies, it will be non-sticky even for hours. So even if you are packing in your kids tiffin box for breakfast, it will be non sticky and yummy in taste.
However in some schools maggi is not allowed as it’s a junk food. But you can make this kid friendly maggi for them occasionally. Kids will love this.
To make this healthier add more of vegetables like cauliflower, green peas, carrots, green beans, potatoes and many more you can add. This hardly takes 15 minutes to prepare. And this 15 minutes maggi is no doubt 1000 times better than 2 minutes maggi.
