Maggi Sandwich


Maggi Sandwich is a street food from Mumbai. Mumbai street food is famous all over and every flavor  possibility can be found as an option in the streets of Mumbai. Simple foods get easily transformed giving a new dimension to the existing food ingredients. This Maggi Sandwich is one like that. 


A sandwich and Maggi noodles are both comfort foods and when they are fused together - it is fabulous. This is a must for Maggi lovers. This is quick to make as most of have these chutneys in fridge for making quick fixes. The flavors from the chutneys, Maggi and the crunch from the veggies - it is a happy marriage. Adjust the amount of chutney that you spread on the bread according to your preference. I like a spicy version and had a little extra in mine but for my kids, had the spread a little less. This is a satisfying happy meal.
