There are very few kids who do not like noodles or pasta. Adding veggies to the pasta makes it healthy, gives parents the satisfaction of giving their kids something good to eat and the kids are happy because they get to eat pasta. This is a very tasty, pasta treat with vegetables added to it.
What you need:
Macaroni - 1 cup
Tomato - 2, pureed
Onion - 1, chopped fine
Ginger - a fairly large piece, julienned
Garlic - 4 or 5 cloves
Carrot - 1, chopped into small pieces
Potato - 1, chopped into small pieces
Paneer - a few cubes
Kashmiri red chilli powder - to taste
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Water - 1.5 cups
Butter/ghee - 4 tsp
Corriander - chopped, for garnishing.
Heat ghee in the pressure cooker. Add ginger, garlic, onion and fry on low heat until the onions start to brown. Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder and tomato puree. Mix well and let it boil until the raw smell goes away. Add the chopped vegetables,paneer, salt, a little sugar and mix well. Now add 1.5 cups of water and the macaroni. Stir well. Close the pressure cooker, but do not put on the weight. When you see steam starting to come out of the vent in full force, wait for two minutes and then turn the heat to low. Let it cook for 6-8 minutes. Switch off heat, open the lid and sprinkle finely chopped corriander leaves over the pasta. Mix well and serve hot.
