Maggi Potatoes

Yet another Maggi recipe, but this one is from my mom’s kitchen and doesn’t involve the noodles per se, it is only the masala. When I was in school, I used to hate eating vegetables so my mother added Maggi masala to all the sabzis so I would eat them! That’s how Maggi potatoes were created and till date, it is one of my favourite things to eat at home.


  • 2 Large Potatoes, Boiled
  • 2 Packs Of Maggi Masala
  • 1/2 Clove Of Garlic, Chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 Tsp Red Chili Powder
  • Salt To Taste
  • 1/4 Cup Of Water


Prep: 5 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes

  1. In a pan, heat oil on a medium flame. Once the oil is hot enough, add cumin seeds and let it crackle for 2 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and saute it for a minute. Add red chili powder and Maggi masala and mix for another one minute.
  3. Lastly, add the boiled potatoes and salt. Cook this for 2 minutes. Add water and let it cook for 2-3 minutes more.
  4. During this time, mash the potatoes lightly. Transfer to a plate and serve hot.
  5. This can be eaten as a curry/sabzi with any type of Indian bread or as a sandwich too. Ready!
