Paneer noodles
Recently I tasted this Maggi paneer masala noodles in Bannerghatta Meenakshi mall food court. Its a popular street food. In the restaurant menu card, this dish was titled as Paneer noodles delight. I was expecting hakka noodles with paneer masala. But they served Instant Maggi noodles with onion, tomato masala and paneer. Sendhil and Raksha were kidding me that I spent 100rs to eat 10 rs Maggi 😉. Yes, even though it was a bit disappointing I really liked the way they dressed up a simple Maggi to a spicy, tasty paneer masala noodles. I tried to recreate the same at home for our Sunday breakfast. It came out very well and similar to the one I tasted. If you feel, Maggi noodles is unhealthy, you can try the same with any other instant noodles like Top Ramen, Yipee or use plain noodles too. Finally it is your choice. I used Maggi veg atta noodles. So I did not add carrot, green peas or capsicum. I made it in a simple way by adding onion, tomato masala and paneer soaked in water.  I did not even roast the paneer pieces in oil as it may make the paneer chewy and hard. So this version of Maggi paneer masala noodles is very easy and quick to prepare in busy mornings. Bachelors and working women who loves to eat Maggi can try this yummy version. Make your own variations by adding more vegetables or tofu instead of paneer. to make it vegan and healthy.  If you don’t want to use tastemaker, you can add garam masala powder and some chat masala powder. You can pack this masala noodles for lunch box as well. It stays good. Ok Friends, lets see how to make Maggi paneer masala noodles with step by step pictures.
