I was thinking of something new and unique to cook, when my friend suggested that I make “MAGGI PAKODAS”. That tweaked my interest and I wanted to try them out immediately. I must say this recipe is so easy and fun to prepare and absolutely delectable. I thought I’d share this recipe with you. So, here goes.
( Serves 4, Preparation Time 5 minutes, Cooking Time 10 minutes )
1 packet Nestle Maggi
1 extra packet Maggi masala(Tastemaker)

- STEP 1 – Cook Maggi as usual along with extra tastemaker and keep aside. Make sure the Maggi is relatively dry. Heat oil in a pan to fry.
- STEP 2 – While the oil is heating up we shall prepare the batter. Add all the ingredients under batter in gram flour and make a smooth batter. Make sure there are no lumps. If you feel extra gram flour is required add accordingly. The batter should be able to coat the Maggi properly.
- STEP 3 – Add salt to taste keeping in mind Maggi also has salt in it. Add Maggi into the prepared batter.
- STEP 4 – Take spoonful portions and put it into the oil to fry until golden brown or crisp. Fry pakodas on medium flame. Place them on absorbent paper to soak excess oil. Sprinkle chaat masala and serve these lip-smacking pakodas with your favorite chutney and ENJOY it with your loved ones.
It would be great if you shared your “Maggi Pakodas” experience with us.
