INDIAN STYLE MASALA PASTA | VEGETARIAN PASTA RECIPE


Generally i make pasta  for kids with  Pasta Sauce , and being bored with the usual style i wanted to try a new version of pasta. My daughter Varsha came up with the idea of this Masala pasta and i tried with a small batch of pasta last week for her and she enjoyed it a lot. Last weekend i made this for all of us and sharing the recipe of Indian style Masala pasta recipe here.
masala pasta + indian style pasta
INGREDIENTS:
PASTA (ANY VARIETY) 2 CUPS
SAMBAR POWDER 1 TSP
ONION 1
TOMATO 1
TURMERIC POWDER 1/4 TSP
MIXED VEGETABLES* 1/2 CUP
OIL 1 TBLSP
MUSTARD SEEDS 1/4 TSP
CURRY LEAVES FEW
PAV BHAJI MASALA 1/4 TSP
masala pasta
METHOD:
  • Cook the pasta according to the instructions. Drain the water and keep it aside.
  • Slice the onions and finely chop the vegetables and tomatoes. * I used  carrots, capsicum,corn kernels, green peas, broccoli, and cauliflower.
chopped veggies
  • In a pan add oil and throw in the mustard seeds and curry leaves.
  • Add in the sliced onions and when it turns pink add the tomatoes.
  • Cook in a medium flame till the tomatoes are cooked.

  • Add in the chopped veggies and add the sambar powder, salt ( just for the veggies), turmeric powder and the pavbhaji masala.
  • Mix well and cook it for sometime , let the vegetables be crunchy and not over cooked.

  • Add the cooked pasta to this. Before adding the pasta run the pasta in cold water in a colander. This is to get moisture to the pasta.
  • Mix well and cook in a low flame for 3-4 minutes.

  4. Jey, Lovely post! I am a fan of indian style pastas and make varities often. Mix some cooked pasta with karuvepillai podi. Garnish it with some ground nuts and ghee. Or just plain ghee and curry leaves in sphagetti is awesome! I have tried with green chutney too. That was so good. Use just like a pesto, sauteed with red capsicum and corn. Also regularly gunpowder ( idli molagai podi) pasta with gingelly oil. Perfect snacks!
