When I heard about the new Limited Edition Maggi – Masalas of India it became a must try for me.
I am sure there are a lot of Maggi fans like me so I thought I would share a review of all the newly launched 4 flavours – Amritsari Achari, Mumbaiya Chatak, Super Chennai and Bengali Jhaal. I tried 3 earlier and today I tried the fourth one. Took some time to get hold of the Super Chennai flavor.
Firstly I see Maggi is trying a lot of experimentation with launching new flavours which are good, we get to try them. Earlier I tried all the 3 ones from Hot Heads and comparing this range to that one I would prefer the Masalas of India. Peri Peri and Barbeque Pepper were surely worth trying but the Green Chilly one was a disaster for me, because of its taste it was not palatable for me.
The 4 different flavours from the Masalas of India reflect the combinations of Indian spices from different regions of India – North: Amritsari Achari which is seasoned with pickle-spices for a tangy Achari experience. Red chillies, kalonji, cumin and coriander are the key ingredients.
Does it really taste like an Achari Maggi? Well to a certain extent. There were ingredients which are present in North Indian pickles like mentioned above also Saunf which is a key ingredient in North Indian pickles. It wasn’t too spicy or sour, little pickle flavoured this flavour was fine. I would rate it as neutral on my scale not too bad nor too good.
Next, comes Mumbaiya Chatak with cinnamon, star annise, kasuri methi and cloves. This represents the West region of India. Mumbai where we all love our chatakedar foods, this seems a good representation of the region.
This among the 4 indeed has a sour taste, it’s not very spicy but a combination of spice and sourness. On a scale of 5, I would give this flavor a rating of 4. I liked it, would surely like to try it again.
Then comes from the East: Bengal Jhaal with aniseed, mustard seeds, fenugreek, cumin and kalonji. The East represents high usage of mustard in their food and with a lot of spice.
The taste has indeed both the mustard flavour and spiciness. Personally, I don’t enjoy the mustard flavour a lot. To rate it I would give it a 3.5 score
Last but not the least the South: Super Chennai with curry leaves, sambhar powder, tamarind and mustard seeds. I liked this one too. Lots of curry leaves with sambhar taste not much of a tamarind though. I think a perfect representation from the South. I had to wait for a week to get my hands on this flavour and share my complete review. I would rate this one also as 4.
I am sure you all would be waiting to try it. Do share your experience, I am eager to know as well. Hope my experience helps.
Tag me in your pics with your Maggi for sure.
Happy Memories with the New Maggi – Masalas of India.
