Ok coming to my post, today is all about PASTA.
Pasta is always a simple-to-prepare dish using the fresh vegetables of the season. In spring you might make it with asparagus and peas, later in the summer with tomatoes and zucchini. Sometimes you can use a cream sauce, sometimes a marinara sauce, and sometimes, just with some grated Parmesan. Here is my spicy version and i call it PASTA- DESI STYLE.
Again this recipe was not on my post list, but thought many of you might love a spicy touch to the regular pasta that you make. Indians mostly love spicy food, if u agree ! Normally when you go to any restaurant here, you will find salt and pepper on your table. When i order a dish, i empty half of the pepper bottle but still i don't feel the complete taste of it.
I personally feel Pepper cannot replace chilli powder. The only restaurant where i saw a pure chilli powder on the serving table was a french restaurant in Mexico. I was sooo excited, sprinkled chilli powder all over my dishes , starting from salad to dessert at the end....lol!
1/2 cup green peas (thawed)
1/2 onion chopped
4-5 tbsp oil
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp chilli-garlic sauce
1 tomato cut into small pieces
Heat oil in a large skillet on medium high heat.
Add the garlic followed by onions.
Once they become translucent, add the peas and carrots.
Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Now add tomato and let it cook further. (for about 5 mins)
Add chilli-garlic sauce followed by salt and chilli powder.
Now add the dry pasta and mix well.
Adjust seasoning. Add more sauce if needed.
A little bit of chopped fresh spring onions would go nicely with this.
Serve with some freshly grated Parmesan, if you like.
If you are a spice lover, try this dish. I was never into pasta so much till i started preparing it my own way. Thanks to my husband for giving me this idea. You can use different combination of vegetables, but i prefer to keep it basic.
Maintaining Perfect Pasta: To keep cooked pasta fresh for later use, toss it with some amount of vegetable oil or olive oil and refrigerate.
