Instructions

Cooking macroni pasta:

  • Collect all the required ingredients.
  • In a pan, heat 3 cups of water and 1 tsp of salt. Bring it to a boil.
  • Add 2 heaped cup macaroni or elbow macaroni.
  • Stir with a fork.
  • Begin to cook macaroni on medium flame till they are al dente – meaning they should have a slight bite to them.
  • Drain all the water and keep cooked macaroni aside.

Making macroni pasta:

  • Heat a large kadai with oil.
  • Add onion and sauté on a low-medium flame stirring often till they become translucent or until they turn pink.
  • Then add ginger, green chilli and sauté till the ginger is light brown or till its raw aroma goes away.
  • Now add chopped veggies and fry them for few seconds until they get crunchy.
  • Next add in tomatoes and mix thoroughly.
  • After mixing, add spices like salt, black pepper powder and red chilli powder.
  • Cook tomatoes until they soften, pulpy and blend with the veggies.The raw smell of tomatoes should disappear.
  • When the tomatoes and veggies blend well, then add 1 tbsp of water.
  • Keep stirring continuously on medium flame until the oil starts separating from masala.
  • Lower the flame and then add the cooked macroni.
  • Mix gently, coating the masala sauce well.
  • Lastly add tomato ketchup and garam masala.
  • Again toss well. Keep in mind mix very gently so that pasta does not break and get much mushy.
  • Sprinkle coriander leaves. Steaming hot veg macaroni is ready.
  • Serve hot this scrumptious macaroni and relish eating.

Notes

  • Make sure not to overcook pasta as they turn too soft and sticky.
  • Adjust the amount of chili powder based on your spice level.
  • You can use veggies according to your choice and if you want to make macaroni pasta more healthy add lots of vegetables.
  • Cooking times can vary according to pasta shape, amount, and type (whole-wheat, gluten-free, etc.).
  • I have used onions, tomatoes, carrot, and capsicum. More variety of veggies can be added to suit ones taste like corn, baby corn, cauliflower, broccoli florets.
  • Unlike dried pasta, fresh pasta takes only two or three minutes to cook, max.
  • Don’t do a cold-water rinse on your pasta when it’s done the cooking. That washes away all the happy starches that bind it to the sauce. (And the delicious salty flavor!)
  • Don’t add any oil to the pasta water.
