Tangy Masala Pasta

Updated on July 14, 2014

We Indians love masala. We have dishes with more masala or less masala but there is no dish in which we do not prefer it. I love spicy food in general. On that particular day, I was shopping for food with my husband at the local market. While browsing the shelves, I saw a packet of pasta. It was an unknown brand but the packaging looked attractive. As I grabbed it for a closer look, my husband reminded me, that it was pasta. By which he meant that it was too plain for my tastebuds. I was too attracted with the pasta to let it go. So I came home and decided I wanted to try the Italian Pasta with an Indian Masala twist. I came up with this recipe. It did not taste like the original pasta, but like some Indian version of the same. My husband was amazed at my idea. He admitted he did not expect the masala pasta to taste this good. From then on, we occasionally makeĀ  pasta with different Indian twists. Here is one such simple recipe.

If the masala is spicy have the dish with a dollop of curd.
