I had the same problem and I was wondering how can I make it more tasty and healthy because I like to eat healthy and really tasty…

Welcome to Neel’s Kitchen!

I love cooking and I enjoy experimenting a lot. Recently I made Macaroni pasta with a lot of vegetables and  5 spices. When I shared this pasta with my friends and they all loved it. Everyone wanted to know how I made it so tasty and yummy.

My secret is that I used some of the popular spices from the East Indian Cuisine. My friends were wondering how come? So here I am going to share everything with you.

Ingredients :

  • 2 cups macaroni
  • 1 tbsp any oil for boiling macaroni, 1 tbsp any oil for making dish
  • 1/2 large onion finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • 1/2 cup green beans
  • 1/2 cup any bell pepper thinly chopped
  • 1/2 cup small mushrooms thinly sliced, stems removed

  1.  Just boil macaroni pasta in boiling water with oil and salt, drain and keep aside.
  2.  In a wok put oil, when heated put chopped veggies ( garlic, onion, tomatoes, carrots,   green beans, bell peppers, mushrooms), green peas. Add any vegetable of your choice.
  3.  Add salt, ground black pepper, dash of red chilli flakes, chat masala and garam masala. Make it on high flame to make the vegetables crispy.

The best part is that it does not take much time at all.
