The next time you’ve contemplating which sort of noodles you should use in your stir fry dishes, don’t look too far. Open your kitchen cabinet and you’re bound to find a few packets of Maggi noodles. You may cringe at the thought of using Maggi noodles in your cooking. Shouldn’t we use healthier options? I hear you say. Well, what I’m trying to convey is the idea of using just the noodles and throwing out the sachets of condiments that accompany them.

Maggi noodles have got this slimy texture compared to its distant relative, the vermicelli or white flat noodles. Also, if you prefer thinner noodles, the humble Maggi is the one to use. Adding to this debate, Maggi noodles are tastier than the white ones and contain less oil and colouring compared to its cousin, the Hokkien noodles. Still unconvinced? Well, why not have a go at preparing this delicious dish.
