Masala Pasta

Masala Macaroni

Pasta traditionally comes from Italy, however there is a variety of pasta now available in Indian markets. The different shapes of pasta gives them the name, as an example the sheet pasta is called lasagne, long thin sticks are called spaghetti, while the elbow shaped ones are called macaroni. Pasta are generally liked by all, especially the kids. I have a constant demand from my son to give him pasta lunch for school. It is good to give in to kids demands at times, at the same time I add some veggies to the preparation to make it more appealing and have some bits of nutrition. Along with it, some Indian masala does wonders to the taste. I added coriander powder, turmeric powder, curry leaves and mustard seeds to make this masala macaroni and I think I have found a delicious dish for lunch packs. The dish looks very appealing and can add multiple stars to your breakfast table. Use this recipe to enjoy a delectable masala macaroni.
