Magomelette

You may have used eggs in many dishes to make it interesting but have you ever thought of mixing maggie(noodles) with egg to create something interesting. The interesting part here is that maggie plays the secondary role unlike other dishes where these come together.

Magomelette in process

I call it magomelette. The combination of maggie and egg to create the Omelette with other ingredients remaining the same.

You should start by boiling your maggie with the masala and then put it aside for 5 minutes. Then break the eggs in the bowl which has boiled maggie, put some onions, green chilli, turmeric powder and garam masala. You can also use tomato if you want to. Add salt as per your taste and mix this well in the bowl.

Now the final part is same as you cook your omelette generally. Spread the mix on the pan and cook it as per your liking i.e. medium, rare or golden.

Just remember to keep the quantity of the noodles lesser so your omelette gets better look.

So cheesy!

Cheese maggi from khao galli

Cheese is a dairy product derived from milk that is produced in a wide range of flavors, textures, and forms by coagulation of the milk protein casein. It comprises proteins and fat from milk, usually the milk of cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep. Cheese is valued for its portability, long life, and high content of fat, protein, calcium, and phosphorus. Cheese is more compact and has a longer shelf life than milk, although how long a cheese will keep depends on the type of cheese. (Wikipedia)

Now we come to the main concern about the cheese, that is about it’s overuse in our eating habits. Whenever we go out to some restaurant or cafe we find innumerable dishes having cheese filling or topping. Cheese has become almost omnipresent in every fast food, even our traditional dishes are not left now. Putting cheese in everything has become a trend that is only on the rise. Cheese attracts people even if it is used where it is not required.

An ingredient in any dish is used to enhance its taste but sometimes cheese is used just to hide the flaws of the dish. I must have had many dishes that were not good at all but were famous in the area. Why, just because the vendor used loads of cheese to compensate for the lack of taste. Maggi is as simple dish as it can get to cook, but some people destroy that too and then there go to is cheese to cover everything up.

Cheese does help these restaurants and cafes in one more way, that is by creating more value in terms of pricing. A simple nacho packet costs about 40 Rupees in India but restaurants just by putting a little cheese on the top can sell it for average 300 Rupees. A cheese slice costs about 15 rupees for the best Indian brands but some will charge 40-50 for the same. This shows that cheese is used to maximize the profits without much taste to offer through it.

I am not against the use of the cheese in any dish. My only concern is put it where it is required to enhance the taste and not to hide the flaws. Some traditional dishes that are already tasty and healthy should not be spoiled by the obsession with the cheese. Cheese should be consumed in a healthy manner. A dish having cheese is not necessarily good in taste, judge the dish without the cheese if cheese is not the primary ingredient of the dish.

Eat everything but know where to stop.

What the foodie !

A person who enjoys food for pleasure. A foodie is a person who has an ardent interest in food and who eats food not only out of hunger but due to their interest or hobby.

Generally foodie interests and activities include the food industry, wine tasting, breweries and beer sampling, food science, following restaurant openings and closings and occasionally reopenings, food distribution, food fads, health and nutrition, cooking classes, culinary tourism, and restaurant management. Foodies have a significant social media presence; food lovers have created their own YouTube channels where they show what they cook and where they eat around the world. It has also become a common practice to take photos of food and beverages consumed at home or outside and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Use of hashtags like #goodfood, #foodporn, #foodgasm, #foodstagram, #instafood, #foodjunktion, #foodies are rampant these days.

Foodies on social media not only show their likings and interests to peopl but also earn money through engagements and collaborations. Pages with as low as 1000 followers on Instagram attract small brands of food industry and many restaurants and cafes. Metro cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Chennai are filled with foodies who have become significant influencers with paid sponsorships. Youtube channels like Meghnasfoodmagic are quite famous among homecooks. Foodies have significant presence on other social media platforms too.

Being a foodie or being recognised as a foodie is in trend but what we’re seeing today that people in the name of being foodie are following unhealthy trend. Foodies are more often than not looking to eat outside food and avoid healthy homemade food. The social media peer pressure to put good photos compels them to do so even more. The lack of nutrition in fast food leads to malnutrition and obesity, the most common problem in USA, China, Brazil, India. Foodies need to understand that their interest in food need not only be for fast food, they can eat healthy food at home and still be recognized as a foodie.

At last, we should always remember to take care of our body first then only we can pursue any interest even if it is being a foodie.
