Indian Style Macaroni

Indian Style Macaroni is one of the yummiest version of pasta / macaroni. Who doesn't like pasta / macaroni? I am sure almost many drool on it. This version of Indian Style Macaroni is easy to make and this makes a perfect snack and dinner time dish and also liked by kids when its loaded with cheese. Even elderly members of the family might enjoy it as it has Indian Masalas added to it. 

I have used Elbow Macaroni. Any type of pasta / macaroni can be used.

Elbow Macaroni 1 cup
Onion 1 small finely chopped
Tomato 1 Medium finely chopped
Green Chili 1 slit
Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder 1 tbsp
Cheese 1/2 cube grated {Optional}
Salt as per taste
Oil 11/2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
Asafoetida 1 pinch
Fresh Curry Leaves few
Freshly Chopped Coriander Leaves few

For Preparing Macaroni:
Water to boil Macaroni
Salt to add in boiling water 1 tbsp
Oil just to drizzle

Lets start with boiling the macaroni...
In a Pan boil around 2 cups of water. Once the water is boiled, add Salt and macaroni and mix well and allow the macaroni to boil. It will take almost 10 minutes. 
Note : Boil Macaroni / Pasta as per the instruction given on the pack.

Once macaroni is boiled, strain the water and immediately pass it under cold water and then transfer to a plate and drizzle some oil and mix and keep ready aside.

Lets Cook Indian Style Macaroni...
In a pan heat oil. Once heated add Mustard seeds. As it starts to crackle, add asafoetida, green chili, curry leaves and onion and saute until onions are soft and transparent. Now add tomatoes, mix and cook until tomatoes are done.

Now add the masalas - turmeric powder, red chili powder and salt just as per needed, as remember we have added salt to the boiled macaroni. Mix well.

Add boiled macaroni and mix gently, taking care that macaroni doesn't break. Now add cheese add at this stage though its optional as per ones liking.

Garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves.

Transfer to a serving plate. Enjoy...
