I’ve seen Maggi Vegetable Atta noodles in a variety of forms throughout the years. This one’s a little different; usually there are import stickers and other things on them, but this looks to be for export. So, what’s masala? Here’s what wikipedia has to say:
Garam masala (from Hindi: गरम मसाला, garam (“hot”) and masala (a mixture of spices)) is a blend of ground spices common in North Indian and other South Asian cuisines. It is used alone or with other seasonings. The word garam refers to “heat” in the Ayurvedic sense of the word, meaning “to heat the body” as these spices, in the Ayurvedic system of medicine, elevate body temperature.

The noodle block.
The Maggi Masala seasoning sachet, known as a ‘Tastemaker.’
Smells like Indian masala.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a little coriander. The noodles have an ‘almost crumble,’ but they more collapse in a way I like when chewed; slightly reminds me of tokoroten. The flavor is a masala with a little heat to it. Flecked with bits of vegetable here and there. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8901058819731.
