Updated on December 20, 2011

Prepared Pasta

The Recipe


Pasta (Penne/Spaghetti/Rigatoni etc.) - 200g
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Oil: 3 tbsp
Onions: 1 large (Finely chopped)
Green pepper: 1 (Finely chopped)
Tomatoes: 2-3 large (Finely chopped)
Red pepper sauce: To taste
Salt: To taste
Spring onions: 3-4 (Chopped)


  1. In a large pan, boil as much as water so that the pasta would drown.
  2. Pour the pasta in the boiling water, and cook in Medium-High flame with 2 tsp of salt until the pasta is done (Roughly 10-15 minutes).
  3. Turn the heat off, drain the pasta with the help of a strainer and return it to the pan.
  4. Mix about 1 tsp of oil with the pasta to prevent it from being sticky.
  5. In a separate pan, heat the remaining oil.
  6. Add mustard seeds and wait for them to splutter.
  7. Add the onion slices, and cook over Medium-High flame till the onions turn translucent (Make sure the onions do not turn brown).
  8. Add the green pepper and cook on Medium heat for a few minutes.
  9. Now add the tomatoes and add a pinch of salt to cook the tomatoes.
  10. Once the tomatoes aren't visible as separate slices anymore, add the pasta and the rest of the salt.
  11. Mix well, and add 2-3 tsps of red pepper sauce (You may increase/decrease the amount of red pepper sauce according to how hot you want the dish to taste).
  12. Once mixed well, turn off the heat, and garnish with spring onions.
