This is one recipe I learnt from a most unexpected source…..In my college, outside the back gate, there was a ‘thela’ – a stall which was very popular across all the students. Mainly because it was the only source of food when the mess food was totally inedible or when you wanted it to be delivered to your room. So this guy, Pandeyji owned the stall and he used to make vegetable Maggi which was really popular and that is where I picked up this recipe
1 pack maggi
1/2 cup shredded cabbage
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1 onion, chopped
Salt and red chilli powder to taste
Heat oil in a pan. Simultaneously, boil the maggi in another pan and add maggi masala to it. Fry onions in the oil till light pink. Now add cabbage and carrots to it and fry for 3-4 minutes till maggi is ready. Now add maggi to this veg mix and sprinkle salt and pepper over it and mix vigorously and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes. Serve with ketchup.
Tip: You can grate cheese into the maggi while it is being prepared to give it a subtle taste.
