Indiano Pasta

>> Monday, July 12, 2010

I'm not much crazy about pasta and the reason is the repetitive bland pasta taste. I was craving for a spicy, a desi version of pasta and the result is this recipe. This dish has no particular recipe to follow, I add anything that comes on my way through the kitchen racks. But it came out so well, "Truly Desi"!!!


Ingredients:
1/2 pack (8 oz) - Pasta, cooked as per instructions
1 onion, chopped
1 tomato, cubed
1 green chilli, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1-2 garlic pods, chopped
1 tsp red chilli powder
a hint of garam masala
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
3 tsp lime juice
1/2 tsp oil
1 tbsp cilantro (chopped)
Salt to taste

Method:
Cook pasta as per instructions. Heat oil in a pan and splutter cumin seeds. Add chopped garlic, onions and green chilli. Saute till onions are translucent. Add chopped bell pepper and saute until it becomes soft. Add chopped tomato and masalas, cook covered till the tomatoes are tender. Add salt to taste.
Toss in the pasta and stir to coat it well with the sauce. Cover and cook for 5 mins. Remove from heat and add lime juice. Garnish with cilantro.
You can also use tomato ketchup, if required.


This is the best dish for snacking.. I'm loving it!!!
