Indian Style Vegetable Masala Pasta


Masala pasta is a delicious and flavorful fusion pasta cooked the Indian way with our spice powders. The cooked pasta is tossed with onion, ginger-garlic, tomato puree, vegetables, Indian spices and garnished with coriander leaves. This hot and masaledar pasta is a refreshing change from the traditional Italian style pastas.

You can use any variety of pasta for this recipe, but I like small variety pasta like shell pasta or macaroni for this masala pasta. Kids would love this colorful pasta and you can easily sneak in any vegetable into this. This masala pasta is makes a great lunchbox option too. Now let's see how to make this easy Indian style masala pasta.


INDIAN MASALA VEGETABLE PASTA RECIPE

{ Indian style masala pasta with Indian spices, mixed vegetables and herbs }
Serves 3-4


Ingredients:

400 gms / 2 cups pasta
2 cups mixed vegetables
1 small-sized onion, finely chopped
½ cup tomato puree
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
¼ tsp turmeric powder
¼ tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
½ tsp red chilly powder
½ tsp pepper powder
½ tsp garam masala
1 tsp kasuri methi / dry fenugreek leaves
Salt to taste
1 tbsp oil
Coriander leaves to garnish

Method:

1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions given in the packet. Drain and keep aside.

2. Heat oil and add onions. Fry till they turn soft. Then add ginger-garlic paste and fry for a minute.

3. Add turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chilly powder and fry for 2 minutes. Then add the vegetables and fry for 3-4 minutes.

4. Now add the tomato puree, kasuri methi and salt. Cover and cook till the vegetables are just cooked.

5. Add the cooked pasta, garam masala, pepper powder and combine well. Adjust the salt and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Notes and Tips
  • I have used carrot, beans, cauliflower, green peas, sweet corn and capsicum. You can add other vegetables like broccoli, baby corn, spinach etc.
  • Do not overcook the vegetables. Its should retain some of the crunchiness.
