Indian style masala pasta, easy pasta recipes

Pasta made with Indian spices and masala, to give it a desi Indian touch. Generally i make pasta  for kids with  Home made 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 Desi 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.

  1. Right Now I am typing a recipe for my Indian version pasta to post in my blog. what a coincidence? you posted it now. Looks super yumm and it is top fav among all other pasta recipes.

  2. 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!
