Recipe 57: Maggi Cheese Pakora

Maggi is an extremely popular Indian noodle brand which is absolutely loved by all age groups.

Besides, making them as a noodle, Maggi can actually be turned into a surprise element in several dishes.

You can fill it in some roti/paratha for a noodle roll. Stuff it in thin maida sheets and fry spring rolls, Or add tons of vegetables and scrambled egg for a hearty meal.

Today, my husband went the experimental way and came up with cheesy maggi fritters or pakora which we named Maggi Cheese Pakora!
While cheese is optional and you can definitely opt out and the recipe will still taste good, the addition of cheese changes the classic taste of maggi and offers a spicy yummy flavour quotient. Besides, who doesn't love cheese?

I have used Cheddar Cheese this my recipe. Grated Mozzarella will work fine too.
Also, the recipe is very flexible. Instead of maggi you can choose any noodle of your choice. The same goes for the vegetables.

So, lets make some Maggi Cheese Pakora!

Ingredients for 8-9 Pakoras:

  1. 1 packet Maggi Masala (click to buy Nestle Maggi)
  2. 4-5 tbsp. grated cheddar cheese (click to buy Kraft Cheddar Cheese)
  3. 1 medium size carrot finely chopped
  4. 1 medium size onion finely chopped
  5. 2 tbsp. green peas
  6. 2 tbsp. rice flour
  7. 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour/maida
  8. 1 tsp. crushed black peppercorns
  9. 1 tsp. mixed herbs (click to buy Keya Mixed Herbs)
  10. 1 tsp. chilly flakes
  11. salt to taste
  12. vegetable oil for frying


Cook all the vegetables and maggi together as per the instructions in the packet.
Flavour the noodles with the tastemaker.
Ensure that no water is left behind and the noodles aren't runny.
To the slightly cooled vegetable maggi add cheese and mix lightly.
Take a small plate, and press the maggi evenly flat to form 1-2 inch thick round disc.
Keep the plate in fridge to firm up noodles for 30 minutes.
Then take it out and cut into cubes of your desired size.
Meanwhile, make a thick slurry of water, all-purpose flour, rice flour, salt, crushed black peppercorns and mixed herbs.
Into this, dip the maggi cubes and fry them in hot oil.
Drain excess oil in a paper towel.
Serve Maggi Cheese Pakora with green chutney and tomato ketchup.
