Vegetable spiral pasta is a healthy pasta dish that is ideal for breakfast or dinner or you can even pack it for your kid’s lunch box. This is an excellent way of making your kids eat vegetables. Vegetable spiral pasta not only looks great but also tastes awesome.







Ingredients

200 gms spiral pasta
4 tbsp oil
1 onion thinly sliced

¾ tsp red chilli powder
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper powder
3 tomatoes deseeded and pureed
1 cup vegetables finely chopped (potatoes, peas, carrot and French beans)
Chopped coriander and mint leaves
2 cheese cubes grated

Method

  • Take the vegetables in a pressure cooker with ½ cup water and a pinch of salt and cook for about 2 whistles. When the steam has come out, open the lid, strain the vegetables and keep ready. (You can use the vegetable stock to prepare soups or gravies.)
  • Boil plenty of water in a pan with 1 tsp salt. Add the pasta and cook for about 10 minutes till the pasta is cooked but holds its shape.
  • Drain off the excess water using a strainer and wash the pasta with running water. Remove all excess water and keep the pasta ready.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add onions and saute till the onions turn golden.
  • Add ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell goes.
  • Add salt, red chilli powder and pepper powder and mix well.
  • Add tomato puree and cook till oil starts separating.
  • Now add the cooked vegetables, coriander and mint leaves and mix well.
  • Finally add the cooked pasta and cheese and toss well.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl and serve hot.
