Making Macaroni And Vegetables

  • Place a pot with 3 cups of water on medium heat. As the water becomes hot, add the salt and macaroni to it. Let it boil for a few minutes. When all the macaroni is soft, switch off the flame. Remove the excess water and keep the macaroni aside.
  • Now, put a pan on medium heat. Pour the oil, and as it becomes hot, add the minced garlic along with the chopped onion. Sauté those till you get a nice aroma. The onions will turn translucent while the garlic will become brown.
  • Next, tip in the chopped tomatoes and let them cook for about 2 minutes till they become soft.
  • Now reduce the flame and mix turmeric, cumin and coriander powder and red chili powder. Let them fry for just a few seconds and add garam masala powder, black pepper powder, and salt.
  • When the spices are cooked well, add the mixed vegetables along with green peas. Mix them well and pour the water. Stir it and cover the pan.
  • Let the veggies simmer on low heat for a few minutes till all of them become soft.

Finally Assembling The Veggies With Macaroni

  • When the veggies are cooked, mix the boiled macaroni with them. Sprinkle the dry herbs on them and give it a good mix. Check the seasoning, and if needed, you can add a little more salt or black pepper.
  • Your spicy macaroni is ready. Put them on a serving plate. Now add some grated cheese on the top, followed by the chopped coriander. Serve it warm.
  • You can also add cream on the top instead of cheese. Both cheese and cream taste yummy with hot and spicy macaroni.
