Life Hack with Maggie Noodles

“I am so hungry that I could eat an entire buffet but I only have Maggie in my house.” How often a bachelor has this conversation with himself or his roommate. Maggie has become an integral part of a bachelor’s life. Not everyone can be Bear Grylls and survive on food that would make a normal human being puke from dawn to sunset. But eating the plain simple Maggie every day will also get to you eventually and you will start craving for something different even though your pockets try to persuade you otherwise.

I have also gone through the same phase during my bachelor hood days. I used to live in a rented accommodation during my graduation with a small room which I liked to call my kitchen. I had a small gas cylinder, a burner, 2 plates, 2 spoons, 1 fork, 1 frying pan and 1 pot in my kitchen and it made me feel like I was ‘Gordon Ramsay’. I was a cocky cook and still am. I like to experiment, big or small, from simple boiling water to honey glazed chicken and more I have made them all. I learnt to cook because of my mother’s health issue but I am grateful that I will never go hungry now.

Eating outside every day with limited budget is an option only if you can go hungry for the second half of the month. Cooking at home is definitely cheap, time consuming, but cheap. And that is what a bachelor looks for to save money and what better way to cook at home, eat healthy (only if you know how to cook) and satisfy your taste buds.

As I mentioned before eating Maggie day in day out with its spice pack only is boring as hell. So I decided to learn various styles to make Maggie as it was the cheapest and easiest way to fill my stomach. My Master Chef kicked in and I started experimenting. Boy have I ruined so many Maggie packs I don’t even want to remember. But it all paid off in the end as I got my first success. Nothing fancy but a change from boring plain old Maggie.

The recipe I will share here is for all those bachelors who live far away from home and are not able to get a decent meal but have access to a kitchen.

So get your chef hat on or a helmet if you do not have confidence in your cooking and let’s begin the experiment.

Gears of War (Ingredients):

1 double pack of Maggie, cooking oil (soya for beginners as it is a bit health but others are way costly), 1 teaspoon salt, 1 tea spoon red chilli powder, 2 green chillies (if you like it spicy), 1 mid-sized onion, 1 mid-sized tomato and 1 pack of tissue for your battle against the onion).


  1. Take a deep cooking pot and start boiling with 4 small cup of water and the double pack of Maggie. Add the spice pack to it and keep it on medium flame.
  2. Now cut the onion lengthwise and for tomatoes make small pieces of it.
  3. Put the frying pan on high flame and pour 4 table spoon of oil in it.
  4. One the oil is hot enough reduce the flame to medium and add the onions to it.
  5. Fry the onions till golden brown.
  6. This is the step where you add green chillies if you are into spicy stuff. If not please skip this step. I will not be responsible if you decide to be brave and instead turn into a dragon.
  7. Add tomatoes, salt and chilli powder to it to the onions and fry it for 2 minutes.
  8. Keep an eye on the Maggie. If it becomes smooth turn off the flame.
  9. Once you finish the frying of the onions and tomatoes add the Maggie to the frying pan.
  10. Caution: Make sure you use the right size frying pan.
  11. Mix the fried material and Maggie thoroughly for about 5 minutes.
  12. Take care not to burn your Maggie as I had done initially.
  13. Turn off the heat after the 5 minutes are over and cover the frying pan.

The hardest part is now over. All you have to do is enjoy your cooking. Make sure your friends are not over or else you will have enough Maggie for only 2 bites. I had friends over and I remember to this date how I scrapped the frying pan just to get the essence of my cooking. Do not repeat my mistake.

I recommend you to buy and learn how to use chopsticks as well as it has 2 benefits.

  1. You feel like you are having Chinese noodles, Pseudo Happy Feeling.
  2. Girls love a man who can do it. Trust me.

This is one of my bachelorhood life hacks. Next time stay tuned for more interesting and easy to make recipes.

See you soon.
