3 cups Macaroni
2 tbsp Oil
1 tbsp Ginger grated
1 Chopped Onion
Two chopped chunks of Tomatoes
½ cup Chopped Carrots
½ Cup Capsicum
2 tbsp Tomato ketchup
Salt as required
1 tbsp Red chili powder
½ tsp Turmeric powder
1 tbsp Garam masala powder
Chopped Coriander leaves
Boil dried Macaroni: Take one large pot and add 7-8 cups of water and let it come to boil. Now, add dry pasta to it with some salt and 1 tbsp of oil. It will prevent the macaroni from sticking to the pot and also helps quickly boil them. After ten mins, you will see macaroni is done, drain the excess water and keep it aside.
Prepare the sauce: Take a pan and turn on the heat. Add 2tbsp of oil and allow it to heat enough to proceed further. Now add grated ginger and stir for 1 min, then add chopped onions to it and stir again for 2-3 mins.
We do not need to burn the onions or give them any goldenish color, once they are translucent, you can throw in all the veggies and give it a good mix for a couple of minutes.
Do not overcook the vegetables ever in pasta, let them be raw a bit if need be because you do not need your dish to look soggy.
Add all the powder masalas into it, Salt, red chili powder, garam masala and turmeric powder.
Now it is optional to add mayonnaise, cheese or butter, whatever is best available to you. It gives a twist to Indian style cooking. And mix it well.
Add ketchup and give the sauce about five mins to cook well. You can sprinkle some water if the sauce is getting dry.
Add boiled macaroni to the sauce now and high the flame. Mix everything very well.
Garnish with coriander leaves and let it cook for 3-4 mins more. Turn off the flame and allow it to settle down. Take out in a dish and serve as it is.
