Cordon Bleu

Maggi takes a lot longer than 2 minutes to make. In fact it takes a whole 8 minutes to become comestible. My cooking skills (generally thought to be exceptional, just by me!) are such that I managed to burn maggi. Yes impossible as though this feat sounds, I, my friends have managed successfully to burn instant noodles and render them quite inedible. A brainwave hit me only recently and that’s when I discovered the joys of microwaving maggi. Submerge in a pot of water. Shove it in for 6 minutes. Take it out, add tastemaker, 2 more minutes. Generously lather with ketchup, and voila..Dinner’s ready. Its’ ok to thank me for another recipe..all in a day’s work for me. Similar experiments have led me to find the perfect coffee too. American coffee is a bland thin affair, lacking sorely in the strength, flavor and richness of Indian coffee, especially south Indian decoction, straight out of amma’s kitchen. Nevertheless, being a roman in rome, I have adapted myself to the rubbish Americans drink as coffee. The weird decoction, with 4-5 servings of cream, and 2 sugars with skimmed milk somewhat make it human. Still, the punch is missing. Indian coffee hits you with a rich aroma, and a bitter-sweet taste and manages to leave an aftertaste too. Drunk hot, with foam on top..aah the small joys of life.

You should not have...I am addicted to Maggi...and you just made my life a bit simpler, and my addiction a bit worse.

BTW, I love the taste of burnt maggi.

And I cannot try coffee and maggi because I do not drink coffee!
