Italian cuisine is still a relative newbie in the Indian culinary scene. And sometimes our Indian taste-buds may not easily adapt to the subtle sauces that form the core ingredient of most Italian dishes. We are used to having sauces only by means of spicy curries and gravies. Hence, dear readers, Indo-Italian fusion food should not sound as a surprise .
Today’s recipe is Indian style Pasta. For this boil macaroni in salted water till it’s al-dente. Parallely finely dice onions, potatoes, carrots and green bell pepper. You can also use any other veggies of your preference, just make sure they are chopped finely. Now in a pan heat some oil and add mustard seeds for tempering. Once the mustard seeds stop popping, add in the veggies and season with whatever spices you have handy. I have used salt, turmeric powder, coriander powder and garam masala. Once the veggies are cooked, mix in the drained pasta and add a dash of lemon juice. Optionally, you can also add chopped coriander leaves for better flavour.
If you are new to Italian cuisine, and are wondering what to do with that packet of macaroni, then well, this would be the ideal dish to begin with. You can have this as breakfast or snack and trust me, kids would just love it . So try out this dish and step into the exciting world of Italian cuisine .
