Hare Krishna Devotees
I aksed one mataji in temple regarding semi-prepared and fully prepared food.
Her view on this was anything machine made should be o.k. to serve (off course as long as it doesn't contain non-veg/onion/garlic).
Food cakes etc prepared in hotels are usually prepared in a filthy manner and not suitable to offer to Lord.
However I have a Barilla pasta packet from US, though the ingredient doesn't have any non-veg/onion/garlic item in it but as a caution in the packet its clearly mentioned
"This product is manufactured on equipment that processes products containing eggs"
Since it was an imported one, these things are clearly mentioned on allergy not as per FDA rules.
These things are not mentioned in products prepared in INDIA even if needed (chalta hai attitude).
So the question is still the same. Advanced devotees please guide, can we serve these kind of items: noodles/pasta/bread/pizza/vermicelli/corn flakes etc etc.
Off course Lord will accept anything served with love and devotion but still there are rules that needs to be followed. isn't it?

Hare Krishna Devotees! Pamho!
Can we offer items like bread, corn flakes, vermicelli, pasta etc. to Krishna?
I don't believe its a good idea to consume parboiled/semi-prepared foods because you cannot offer the Food to Krishna. If in doubt then you could offer it to Prabhupad who'd offer it on your behalf else will fail it and you'd be saved from any sin.
Need to research this aspect more carefully though.
Jai Srila Prabhupada..
thanks for suggestion i will not take maggi if it comes under "parboiled/semi-prepared foods ".
there will some way to prepare wheat noodles in home ? i'll try to find out.
Thats a great idea.. If you find a way thats easy let me know and I'll do likewise..
Hare Krishna...hope it won't be as difficult as it looks..lol :-)
First boil water, cut tomatoes in it , put half tea spoon chickpea and wheat flour, black pepper powder, half teaspoon butter, temple sambhar masala, salt to taste and sugar if needed. once The tomatoes which was put in the boiling water becomes soft try mashing it with a spoon inside only(it will b easy to do it).
After that wash the maggi with water, this will remove max wax content from it .
Now put the maggi in the above mixture and cook for 3 mins. Serve hot to Krishna and honor it.
Hare Krishna dear devotees
If we can serve maggie then we can serve ready made bread as well?
As of now what I know is we should not serve readily made(outside prepared) foods to Lord.
What I do sometimes when I have to prepare such items like maggie/pasta etc.
I cooked the vegetables(to be used in maggie/pasta) offer it to Lord and then mix that vegetable to maggie/pasta etc.
I understand it's a workaround for eating something that Lord doesn't eat. But until I have complete control of my tongue this is what I am going to follow.
Kindly advise if we are allowed to offer semi-prepared or fully prepared food(as long as it is veg/non onion/garlic) to Lord. examples bread/maggie/pasta/pizza etc etc
