I thought I should occasionally include reviews of new food products that I try. Sometimes, sharing a one-liner on Facebook or Twitter just doesn’t do it for me.
So, the Indianized version of pasta – Maggi’s Pazzta Masala Penne. I got this from Hypercity in the Inorbit Mall in Hyderabad. I grabbed one pack each of the Cheese Macaroni (which I am yet to try!) and the Masala Penne.
The package says “cook for 5 mins”. This was obviously not enough. I mean, how many of us really cook the Maggi Noodles for just 2 mins? Me? Never. It always takes longer than that. So that’s fine. I can wait 7-8 mins for a dish of pasta.
The Masala smell while cooking was very “Maggi”. I love the flavours usually so it was good. The quantity of pasta was surprisingly little. It would probably feed a 10-year old. Or maybe not. Anyway, it was really really little. I would guess between TH and me, we would require 3 packets.
The first taste and owww! It was very very salty!! I know the masala that comes with Maggi Noodles is heavy in salt but this was ridiculously salty. Did anyone else have this same experience?
I am in no hurry to try the Cheese Macaroni yet. Will keep you guys posted!
