Maggi Noodles Fritters Aka Maggi Bhajiya

 Everyone loves Maggi. The favourite noodles are back in the market, brand rebuilding campaign going strong. So when everyone is finally happy to have Maggi, I remembered a recipe I had tried a couple of years ago with my sister. We made Maggi Fritters, loaded with veggies. Needless to say, they tasted awesome, had their own nutritional quotient owing to veggies in it and were a wonderful twist to our favourite Maggi.


Maggi Noodles - 1 packet

Chickpea Flour - 2-3 big tablespoons

Green Bell Peppers- 1 big (chopped finely)
Red Bell Pepper - 1 big (chopped finely)
Onion- 1 (chopped finely)
Potato - 1 (grated)
Carrot - 1 big (grated)

Salt- According to taste
Red Chilli Powder - 2 tsps
Turmeric- a pinch
Amchur Powder - to taste
Maggi Masala - 1 packet
Oil - for frying


First cook your Maggi Noodles according tothe instruction on the packet. If there is excess water, drain it and keep it aside.
Now, in a big mixing bowl, take the chickpea flour, all the chopped veggies, and add all the dry spices to it. Mix it well.
Add the cooked Maggi Noodles to this mixture. If it appears dry, then add the water that you drained and kept aside to form a batter.
Adjust the taste of your batter, by adding Maggi Masala.

Heat oil, in a deep frying pan. Once it is hot, slowly drop the fritters in oil. Let them rise to the top. Then turn and fry them till they are golden yellow in colour. Be careful when you frying and drop the fritters very slowly.  These hot Maggi Fritters go well with Mint Chutney, Ketchup. But just so you know, they are great to be enjoyed on their own too!

Guava Sabzi - Jamfal / Jamrukh nu Shaak / Guava in Spicy Tangy Sauce

Guavas are in season and I can never resist buying them in bulk. Who doesn't love a raw(to almost ripe) guava with salt and chilli powder sprinkled on it ? But then again, they ripe soon and they only way to put them to use is making a tangy spicy sauce and stirring them in.

Guavas (ripe) - 6
Chilli Peppers (Cubanelle or Anaheim) - 2
Salt - to taste
Cumin Seeds - half tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Red Chilli Powder - 2 tsp
Turmeric - half tsp
Coriander and Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Sugar - half tbsp
oil - 2 tbsp
Lemon Juice - Optional

Chop the guavas into cubes and set aside. Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds and let them splutter. Add asafoetida to it. Next add the chopped chillie peppers and fry them for a minute. Throw in the guavas. Add all the spices to it. Mix well. Cover with a lid and let it cook for five minutes.
Check if the guavas have cooked well. You can add a bit of lemon juice at the end if it tastes sweet.

P.S. Sugar can be substituted with jaggery


Spicy Amla Pickle

Amlas are in season. While eating raw amla is something we all love, many of us pickle it with salt and turmeric. Here's one recipe of spicy alma pickle that is equally good.

Fenugreek seeds split
Sesame split seeds
Salt to taste
Red Chili Powder
Turmeric Powder

Cut amla into thin slices. Roast fenugreek and sesame seeds separately. Now grind all the spices including salt. This is your pickle powder ready. Heat little oil and pour over pickle powder. (Heat oil slightly, you don't want to burn the chilli powder). After a few minutes mix the powder with oil and add it to amla slices. Amla pickle is ready
