Boiling Maggi for masala maggi
Start with a Pan and add 3 Cups of water. Switch ON the stove on high flame.
Once water is mild hot It will take about 1 minute, add Maggi, Peas and Maggi Masala tastemaker. We need to let it cook until the water dries up.
It would take some time and that time is approximately 10 minutes. Yes, the Maggi does not boil in 2 minutes as advertised. It takes a good amount of time. Our experiments have shown approximately 10 minutes.In the mean time, we will make the Tadka on second stove.
If you make the Tadka in parallel, you can save 5 minutes in this recipe. We have anyway counted these 5 minutes separately assuming you would do it separately. Doing it in parallel is recommended though.
