Masala Macaroni Recipe is soft pasta with the crunch of onions along with the sharpness of cheese and sweetness of ketchup, everything well-balanced.
Well, this was a hit and trial recipe. After trying to make it many times, after adding, omitting, increasing, and decreasing the ingredients I settled for this recipe. Now I just follow it. I have used pasta seasoning in the recipe. Such seasonings are easily available in the stores. It is basically a mix of garlic powder, chili flakes, oregano etc. If you don’t find it you can add some crushed garlic, oregano and chilli flakes. I have added milk and cheese. It gives a nice creaminess to the Masala Macaroni.
Macaroni Recipe for Kids
This is the Monday tiffin for Amy (my 10-year-old daughter). Why so? Simple, to beat the Monday blues! She loves it. One fine day after kids’ tiffin and everyone’s breakfast I had a bowlful left. I kept it in a container in the fridge. Amy came back and asked if there was any Leftover Macaroni. I said “yes there is but you have had enough so you won’t get more now.” I thought I have sorted it. The day passed. At night I was just checking the fridge when I saw the macaroni container EMPTY!! Amy ate directly from the fridge whenever she got the chance to. I asked her “how could you eat cold macaroni!!?” She said “It was cold but yummmmm.”
Love pasta?? Try pasta in white sauce etc.
