Macaroni in creamy spinach sauce
What you need:
Macaroni - 1 cup
Spinach - 1 cup
Garlic - 8 cloves
Green chilli - 2 (adjust to taste)
Peanuts - a handful
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tsp
Heat oil in a pan. Saute the garlic and spinach until the leaves start to wilt. Let it cool and then grind to a coarse paste along with the peanuts.
Take the macaroni in a pressure cooker. Add 1.5 cups of water to it. Stir in the spinach puree and salt. 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. Top with grated cheese.
