Husband in the kitchen: Baked Maggi with Eggs and Mushrooms (Serves:4 ; Preparation Time: 45 minutes)

Guest Blogger: Amit Rajvanshy

Like everyone else, I too like to have my Maggi, my own unique way.

While on any busy day, I religiously follow the instructions on the pack, this recipe is for those special mornings when one is in a mood for something more elaborate. I first surprised Ishita with this brunch recipe on a Saturday morning right after her pre-natal Yoga class; since then, its one of her favourite too!

This recipe is a cross between a baked omelet and an elaborate Maggi. You will need a whole lot of eggs, 2 packets of Maggi, some sesame seeds and mushrooms. It is a moderately complex recipe and can be enjoyed on a leisurely Sunday morning.


Baked Maggi with Eggs and Mushrooms
  • 2 packs of Maggi and taste maker from one of them
  • 3 egg yolks and 9 egg whites, whisked
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 inch ginger, peeled and grated
  • 3 medium sized spring onions (only bulbs), chopped
  • 1 pack of mushrooms, washed and chopped
  • 3 tbsp of oil
  • 2 tsp of sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Soy sauce and vinegar, to taste


  • Boil the Maggi (without the taste maker) in considerable amount of water; when cooked, drain and rinse with fresh water
  • In a large frying pan, heat the oil and crackle sesame seeds; saute for 1-2 minutes on medium flame
  • Add ginger and garlic and saute for another 1-2 minutes; add Maggi’s taste maker and blend well
  • Add chopped onions and mushroom and saute for 5-7 minutes on medium flame, stirring continuously; turn the heat down once onion is lightly browned
  • Toss Maggi into the pan and mix well with the cooked onion and mushrooms
  • Add salt and sugar to the whisked eggs and pour the creamy mixture into the frying pan
  • Let the eggs cook with Maggi in the pan for just about 2 minutes; stir gently to make sure that the eggs spread evenly
  • Turn of the heat and transfer the frying pan contents to a convection proof glass or tin dish
  • Bake the Maggi for 15 minutes in the oven at 200 deg mark
  • Add some soy sauce and vinegar while serving
