VEG MASALA MACRONI/Indian Veg Masala Pasta/Veg Macroni Stir Fry

Indian Masala Pasta

Pasta/Macroni is definitely my favourite. But with the fear of the ingredients of pasta(most made from maida) and lack of availability of whole wheat pasta makes me cook pasta very rarely. I recently witnessed pasta/macroni being widely used even for babies(I was shocked indeed).I go for it very occasionally and I attempt to cook a different recipe every time. This time I wanted to blend the Indian masala and make a stir fry recipe with macroni just like I make any veggies. The most happiest thing with this recipe is I used home-made cheese. As a mother if you are against such foods but your lo loves it , make it extra healthy by adding loads of veggies and less of macroni 🙂 An Indo-Italian fusion recipe 🙂 Come and have a look at the recipe.

P.S:

Fluff the macroni  with a fork after draining the water if you choose shell type

You can add a drop of oil in the water to have non-sticky pasta

You can also add chat masala

I stir after adding cheese and garnish with additional cheese.

Adjust the chilly powder as per your taste.
