Maggi Noodles need no introduction. It’s the snack with which we muse over the fond memories of our childhood.

The company introduced many other variants but the classic Masala Maggi remains invincible. Maggi is a very versatile snack. You can create so many interesting recipes using other ingredients with the simple noodles and the tastemaker. One such creation is the Maggi Pakora recipe that I had had for the first time as a kid.

Perfect Maggi Pakora Recipe – Tips to Follow

The key to making good Maggi pakoda is to not cook the noodles completely. The instructions on the packet say to add 210 ml water to one pack of noodles. But instead, you need to add a lesser amount to keep the noodles a bit raw. They should have a bite to them. The next thing is not mashing the Maggi while mixing it with the flours. Also, use minimal water to bring the pakora mixture together.

      Hi Archana. I guess your pakora batter was too soft. The noodles got mashed too much or were overcooked or both. Try keeping the noodles a bit raw and mix them with other ingredients of pakora batter very gently. I hope this helps. 🙂
