Our Rice Cooker Now has Magical Uses for our Modern Day Viands

Something new will rock your kitchen.   As Maggi unveiled their new innovative product that will change the way you think about cooking.

Yes a new innovation on cooking technology is about to be unveiled but before that let see this caption from a blog I read: 

"I am a 20 year old stay at home mom of 3 my oldest son who is 5 years old my daughter who is 3 years old and my youngest son who is 1 1/2....
I have a big problem with trying to have healthy food in the house :(
My other big problem is i have anxiety to cooking i can't cook in my stove.... :( :(
i can cook rice and KD on the stove but thats all :(
i remember i use to cook all kinds of food when my hubby was at work and had my kids and when i was pregnant and even when the hubby was home that was my alone time but now its not and i just wish i could find some healthy recipes for food that i can cook without taking too much of my time......
Please be nice when you write to this post
Thank you"
Just the right timing, I now know what  to suggest to her, instead of giving all the healthy recipes I know.   Like me, I love to serve my family with nutritious food which they can enjoy.  But with a family of six, chores never seem to end and 24 hours isn't enough to keep my house all tidied up with a dinner table that will set my kids flying home.

Maggi's brand manager, introducing the exciting new product of their company, Nestle's first-in-the-world  recipe solution designed for a rice cooker.  To help the country rediscover the magic of meals prepared and enjoyed at home, NESTLÉ introduces one of its game-changing innovations to date---MAGGI MAGIC MEALS. It is a first-in-the-world recipe solution designed for use in a rice cooker.
“   With today’s busy lifestyle, many are finding it hard to sit down to a hearty, wholesome, balanced meal at home,   much less cook one themselves,” says Star Estacio, Senior Vice President and Business Executive Manager for Food at NESTLÉ. “MAGGI MAGIC MEALS offers a solution not only through mouth-watering recipes guaranteed to gather the whole family around the table, but more so through an  innovative and modern way of cooking that is so easy and efficient, it’s going to make Filipinos want to cook at home more often.”

Not just a recipe mix, MAGGI MAGIC MEALS not only offers a recipe flavoring, it also offers a simple and effective method of cooking using the most ubiquitous cooking appliance in Filipino homes—the rice cooker.  The MAGGI MAGIC MEALS pack has a dual chamber containing the MAGGI MAGIC RECIPE MIX and the MAGGI MAGIC COOKING BAG. It is a most unique cooking kit. The MAGGI MAGIC RECIPE MIX guarantees a complete and proper blend of flavors, there is no need to add anything else except the fresh meat and vegetables.  The MAGGI MAGIC COOKING BAG, on the other hand, guarantees that the “ulam” can be cooked together with rice using a rice cooker.  Once in the rice cooker, the cooking bag ensures that the meat and vegetables cook in its own juice at the proper doneness, and the sauce develops into a thick and hearty consistency. There is no need to keep checking for doneness or to keep correcting the sauce for the right “timpla.”  After 45 minutes, one can say that he/she has prepared a wholesome, balanced meal complete with rice.  For the time-strapped homemaker or individual, MAGGI MAGIC MEALS will make cooking and eating such an easy and enjoyable experience, they will want to cook at home over and over again.
There I am along with other food bloggers as chef-wannabees trying out how to prepare the four dishes in just 45 minutes.
With MAGGI MAGIC MEALS, anyone can gain instant know-how in cooking some of the most complex Filipino recipes.  Pinoy favorites like Bicol Express, Afritada, Lechon Paksiw and Chicken Pastel can now all be prepared in a method that is as easy and as simple as cooking rice.

To prepare the dish your choice, just follow these 5 simple steps:
1.       Place your chicken or pork pieces together with thinly sliced vegetables inside the MAGGI MAGIC COOKING BAG (chicken has to be scored or sliced lightly  3 times per side to ensure thorough cooking; pork pieces need to be sliced into thin strips)
2.       Add the MAGGI MAGIC RECIPE MIX which contains a complete blend of flavors to create a delicious stew. No need for additional ingredients, except the fresh meat and vegetables.
3.       Add 6 tbsps. of water into the cooking bag.
4.       Massage the bag gently to dissolve the mix, then seal the bag by tying a knot.
5.       Place the cooking bag flatly on top of washed rice, then start cooking the rice as you normally would. After 5 mins, both rice and “ulam” are  ready to serve!

Once the rice is cooked, the viand inside the plastic bag will surprise you.
