Yes, that is correct. The first time I saw this recipe here, I had mocked it and mocked it despite the fact that I love Sanjeev Kapoor’s recipes. They are usually unbelievably simple and the outcome usually delicious. I should also confess that I did bookmark the page for one of those days that I would feel adventurous enough. So here is a very Indian-Thai tasting pasta recipe that was made by the wise guy- rest assured he/we did not follow the recipe to the T.
1 box dried rotini pasta
1 bag of frozen veggie mix that had broccoli, cauliflower and carrots
1 onion, sliced
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 tbsp garlic paste
1 tbsp ginger paste
red chilli powder, to taste
2 green chilli, chopped
1 tbsp Garam masala (the wise guy used something called mutter paneer masala from parampara)
1 cup half and half
salt, to taste
1 tbsp oil for frying
Boil the pasta as per package instructions with salt and may be some olive oil.
While pasta is cooking, heat oil in a pan. Add onions and saute them. Add tomatoes, ginger- garlic paste, green chillies, red chilli powder and garam masala. Let it cook for a couple of minutes until the raw smell of the masala is gone.
Add veggies and cook for a few more minutes until crisp and tender. At this time add some salt and pepper to taste. Once the veggies are almost done add half and half- as it comes to a rolling boil turn it off and add the pasta.
Serve hot or cold, tastes good either way.
The pasta tasted more like thai noodle soup rather than a makhni dish but it tasted great. In fact it tasted even better the day after! Go ahead try it…
