Masala Instant Noodles (Masala Maggi)

Who doesn't love instant noodles? Yesterday was one lazy sunday evening and I thought why not cook the instant noodles with a different style. So here is what I made. Try it and let me know what you think! Do you have a favorite way of cooking instant noodles? Let me know in the comments.


1 packet ........ instant noodles (maggi, ramen or your favorite brand)
1 tsp       ........ oil
1            ........ onion
1            ........ tomato
1            ........ green chili /red chili powder
½ tsp     ........ mustard seeds
½ tsp     ........ garam masala
1 pinch  ........ asafortida
½           .........lemon

    • Chop the onion and tomato finely.
    • Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and asafortieda. Once the seeds crackle, add onions.
    • Once the onions are a little brown, add chopped tomatoes, red chili powder, instant noodle spices (which come along with the noodles), salt, lemon juice, garam masala.
    • Cook it till oil saperates.
    • Now add one cup water. Once the water boils,  add the noodles. Cook it till done.
    • Ready to serve

    You can substitute tomato with ketchup.
