If you’re Indian, then you definitely have certain feelings about this yellow packet filled with ramen noodles and a masala mix. Everyone has their own favorite way to enjoy Maggi (I like it with extra red chili powder, green chilis, cilantro, tomatoes, corn, and peas) whereas others like it anywhere from the basic prep to soupy to even with Amul cheese and ketchup.

Here’s a fun Maggi snack (inspired by @sanjanafeasts) that totally hits the spot! It’s customizable for any food allergies/preferences and is loved by kids of all ages.  I made the chaat with the Indian Maggi noodles, but you can use any ramen packet and customize the oil, toppings, and sauces to create different variations. My favorite toppings are chickpeas, tomatoes, jalapenos, corn, cilantro chutney, garlic chutney, and topped with fresh cilantro and crunchy sev.


1 packet Maggi masala (or any ramen noodle)

½ tbs oil

1/3 cup water

½ cup each of favorite chaat veggie ingredients e.g. chickpeas, potatoes, red onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, etc.

1 tbs each cilantro chutney, garlic chutney, tamarind chutney

¼ cup sev

Cilantro garnish

¼ cup yogurt with a pinch each of black salt, chaat masala, salt, and sugar


1 Heat oil in a pan and add broken up noodles. Dry roast for 1 minute

2 Add water and the masala packet and cook covered for 1 ½ minutes

3 Add your favorite chaat ingredients and combine using a light touch for 30 seconds. Turn off heat

4 Place the noodles and veggies mixture in a bowl. Top in this order – chutneys, yogurt, sev, and finally cilantro. Feel free to finish off with a pinch of black salt, red chili powder, and chaat masala if you’re feeling extra adventurous!

Hot tips

Do all the prep first – I dry roast the noodles and cut up all the veggies as this dish comes together very quickly and you want to eat it immediately
