Curried Pasta - Indian Style

 photo Curriedpasta_zps801447c7.jpg

I love pasta and the moment I say it, I am drooling for it :)

I have had a few versions of curried pasta from different places and since then I have been wanting to make my own version which would suit my taste buds :) So on a fine day this idea popped up in my head and quickly made my version with our ever favorite Indian spices :)

You cant go wrong with this version and it will for sure be one of your family favorites too :)

Broccoli - 1 cup
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp

Cook pasta and broccoli in water separately and keep it aside. 

Take butter in a sauce pan and while it is melting, mix the maida and milk in a vessel. See to that it has no lumps. 

Once the butter melts down completely, pour in the milk maida mixture into the pan through a sieve. Keep mixing. Allow this to boil until it becomes slightly thick and creamy. 

Now add salt, garam masala, chilly powder, turmeric powder, jeera powder, cumin powder and kasoori methi to it and mix well. Simmer the stove and allow it to get cooked for a while until it starts smelling of spices.

Finally add the cooked pasta and broccoli to it and toss once for the sauce to coat all the pasta. 

Serve hot and enjoy eating the Indian version of curried pasta :)
