Maggi noodles were the first thing I learned how to cook. I liked the idea of not having to disturb my mom every time I wanted to eat something. It tasted delicious,and it still does. It had become a sort of backup food for the times when you can’t find anything to eat in the fridge; sometimes even served as dinner or lunch.
So when I heard about the regulatory authorities in India were trying to ban Maggi I panicked! There were times when if it weren’t for Maggi, I’d starve. But thankfully, there have been a lot of new entries in the instant noodles market. So maybe it isn’t that bad. So if you’re worried about your backup dinner too, here’s a list of other brands that offer instant noodles.
1. Top Ramen
