Vegetable Maggi

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 Winkย 


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.

  1. oh..this I have GOT to try….I love maggi, I could live on it.

  2. Could you explain what “maggi” is? Is it available in U.S. grocery stores or just special stores like Whole Foods?

  3. Good to see you found something tasty and nourishing? Best from Santa Barbara, s

  4. Thanks Stockwell. Maggi makes a great snack/dinner/lunch/breakfast…he he he and can be prepared on the go.

    Karla, Maggi is a Nestle product. It is a form of instant noodles which comes with a small packet of condiments to be added. Maggi is quite popular in India not only with kids, but with adults also. It is prepared by boiling noodles and adding the condiment. The USP is not only taste but the fact that it gets ready in 2 mins. There must be a similar product in the US, maybe Top Ramen is there….

  5. Maggi is a stock cube, I was born and bread with this stuff, I am not sure I would like the recipe above, but I would certainly give it a try without the ketchup haha!! sounds more like student food, and if it is so nice why put ketchup on it…no not a critic I am genuinely curios about it… got my buzz and 5 stars as i found it interesting.

  15. hi, just have a doubt, when we add the maggie to the veggies should it be watery?, i mean we boil the maggie in water so do we need to use more mater or just enough for it ?

  16. Hi Sparkxz…as you have already cooked your veggies, you do not need to add water when you mix them with maggi. Thanks. Sam
