  • Boil about 1 litre water in a pot. When it gets to the rolling boil, add pasta, 1 tbsp regular oil and salt. Cook till pastas are cooked.
  • Cooked pasta look light in colour, they break easily when pinched and they look increased in size a bit.

  • Chop veggies into thin slices (specially the carrot)

  • Fry ginger garlic paste a bit.
  • Then add onion. Saute a bit.
  • Next add capsicum, carrot and tomato.
  • Add salt, herbs, sugar, black pepper powder and chilli flakes. Saute for for 3-5 minutes on medium to low flame.
  • Add maida.
  • Combine flour with the veggies well and roast on low flame for 2-4 minutes.
  • Then add the sauces and combine well. Saute for another 2 minutes or until you see the oil oozing on the surface of the pan.
  • Add milk at this point.
  • Stir continuously.
  • Add pasta when it starts to boil a bit.
  • Combine everything well and cook until the sauce (milk) thickens and you get the right consistency. Stir occasionally to avoid scorching.
  • The pasta must have a good amount of sauce.
  • Garnish with spring onion greens and very little cheese (not required, but if you like so).
  • Serve with tomato ketchup in case someone needs it to be more tangy.
