Organised by GoBuzzinga, a Delhi based hyper-local discovery startup in collaboration with Delhi Food Walks, the festival #MaggitujheSalaam will offer a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes prepared using the noodles.
The festival is scheduled to be held at Nehru Park on February 28. "During the temporary ban on Maggi, people missed it so much and didn't realize it had become an integral part of our daily life. We were overjoyed when it made a return and wanted to celebrate this in a grand fashion," Hunar Katoch, co-founder, GoBuzzinga said.
"The event gives platform to restaurants, street vendors and home chefs to showcase their innovative varieties and providing Delhiites a taste of best Maggi dishes spread geographically across the city which they otherwise might not go and experience," Katoch said.
The event has a platter of dishes made of the popular noodle brand 'Maggi' which include Maggi Shawarma, Maggi Lasagna, Maggi Donut, Seekh Kabab Maggi, Maggi Samosa, Maggi Momos, Butter Chicken Maggi Vodka Maggi, Maggi Pizza, Keema Maggi, Makhani Maggi, Chilli Cheese Maggi, Butter Fry Maggi and a lot more.
The festival, which organisers claim as the first of its kind, aims to explore the hidden varieties of Maggi dishes across the city. "The unexplored varieties of Maggi dishes hidden amongst length and breadth of Delhi led us to curating the festival for our community. The unique appeal of the noodles has made this festival instantly viral.
"It is a tribute to our favorite snack as all of us have memories associated with it whether making it in our hostels or having it as a mid night snack," Katoch said.
