Noodles, as the definition goes are he noodle is a type of staple food made from some type of unleavened dough which is rolled flat and cut into one of a variety of shapes. While long thin strips may be the most common, many varieties of noodles are cut into waves, helices, tubes, strings, shells, folded over, or cut into other shapes.
As a kid I loved Maggi Noodles a lot. I am sure everybody would have had the same experience. But off late after the news about wax in Maggi Noodles, I some how is a little skeptical to eat them. Its not good for kids either. A healthier option is make noodles with some thing else. And there is some one who is the inspiration behind this dish . Its my good friend's MIL. A special mention about her is a must. She is a very talented woman who can cook about anything, a creative person who can never stay idle for a minute. She excels in cooking, painting, art and craft. and of course in taking care of her dear daughter in law. You are an inspiration to me Aunty.
