Gluten free “Non Maggi” Noodles

Crowd out those processed food cravings of your children with this much heathier version of curry rice noodles

Maggi Noodles has been a source of controversy for such a long time. With both children and adults practically addicted to it, the list of ingredients on it screams inflammation. It mostly contains wheat and soy, two of the top few Allergens. It contains gum, which can cause gripping constipation in those prone to it. It contains a really long list of preservatives, known to be endocrine disruptors, and triggers for headaches. I’ll probably be hated by those Maggi lovers out there, but let me stress that this post was not to get into the deep effects of that. This really is about giving many parents an option for their children, and many people an option for those cravings, with perhaps a much healthier version. 

When I came up with this version, it was naturally to give my own son an option, after he asked my husband to get him a Maggi from the store one day, at a time when his health was not the best. After a bit of a tantrum when he told me he did not want to follow my nutritional diets, I sat him down and asked him if I could make him something which tasted almost exactly like Maggi. We made a deal and I experimented. It was such a huge hit with everyone from Grandfather to Grandson, that now everyone asks regularly for the “Non Maggi” Noodles! The Curry powder that stole the show, smiled within, as I thanked it for this super replacement! Try it out and give me your thoughts! Remember, it is only with education, patience, experiments and time, that we can gradually alter our diet and that of our kids, to a better one. Not by giving up, but by replacing or crowding out.

    Thanks a lot Deepa for sharing this interesting recipe. I am looking forward to experiment with it; however the challenge is getting authentic thai rice noodles. Please share where we can get these noodles and amaranth flour. Look forward to more kid friendly recipes; especially gluten, white sugar and cow milk free cakes and pizzas too. Cheers!

      Also want to know which curry powder did you use for the noodles recipe? Thanks!

      • Deepa Kannan

        Salma, as I mentioned to someone else, honestly I don't cae about my brands for Curry powder or Sambar powder. I think the process matters more. But try any of the brands there, like Everest or MDH

    • Deepa Kannan

      Nature's Basket has Real Thai Rice Sticks Salma. Namdhari Fresh has so many Gluten free flours. So does HappyHealthyMe Organics. Yes lots coming up for you!

Book Acquisition by HarperCollins India

Here’s that exciting news I spoke about to coincide with the one year anniversary of The Sleep Whisperer Podcast! Writing a book and becoming part of that magical group of authors is a dream!

Three years ago I wrote a book which I titled Sleep Whisperer, looking at sleep from a very in depth perspective, and tying together the cutting-edge science of functional medicine and eastern ancient wisdom. The story of how I wrote that book is indeed magical and a mixture of spiritual guidance and astrology(by my spiritual guide and mentor Shyam @himalayan.yogi ). It’s also been a lot of sacrifice and hard work during times that were stressful, challenging and testing in all ways.

The journey of the book from concept to acquisition is also a magical path which I will share much later. For now, I’m just humbled, grateful and quite simply excited to announce that the book has been acquired by Sonal Nerurkar @sonal_nerurkar of @harpercollinsin HarperCollins India! Sonal’s faith in the book has been unwavering and I’ll forever be grateful for it. I can’t wait for the final book release next year!

None of this would be possible without the trust, hard work, dedication and patience of my most beautifully warm literary agent Jayapriya Vasudevan @jayapriyavasudevan of Jacaranda Literary Agency. I cannot put into words what her belief in the book and being my warrior for it means to me.

I’m also deeply grateful for the dear colleagues and mentors who have made contributions to the book. That is a surprise for later! You can follow everything about the sleep podcast and book at @mysleepwhisperer
