About Macaroni Pasta

Macaroni is a variety of pasta used for many dishes. However you can substitue this recipe with other pasta varieties like penne, fussili, rigatoni etc. It is used to make pasta, kheer, salads etc.

Macaroni is a dry pasta variety which is more like a curved tube. The curved tube variety is elbow macaroni which I have used here and ther other variety is a narrow tube. But the most common variety available here is the elbow macaroni.

I always love to include indian flavours in pasta and this curried Macaroni Pasta is one of my family favorites. It is a basic onion tomato based curry made and blended with cooked pasta. This recipe is medium spicy hence suitable for kids too.

I have not used cheese or cream to make it creamy and rich but if you wish you can add it, kindly check my variations section for it. I have used just our basic Indian spices like red chili powder and garam masala powder along with mixed herbs.

I used my dutch oven to make this pasta. You can use any heavy bottom pan to make this pasta. Serve it hot!

Expert Tips

  • Always reserve pasta cooked water and add it to the curry before adding pasta. THis helps in thickening the sauce and also avoids pasta from drying.
  • If the pasta is not cooked soft then it will not absorb the masalas fully so make sure to cook pasta perfectly.
  • Make sure the spices are more as it will perfect after adding and mixing the pasta.
  • You can add 2 tablespoon cheese for garnish. You can either use Parmesan cheese or cheddar cheese.
  • Add 3 tablespoon mayonnaise to the sauce to make it more creamy.

Storing & Serving Suggestion

  • Serve it as such hot or serve it along with a toast of bread.
  • I would recommend to consume it fresh. Incase you want to store, make the sauce seperately store in fridge then mix it with pasta while serving.
