HOW TO MAKE MASALA EGG PASTA- INDIAN STYLE EGG PASTA?
MASALA EGG PASTA- PASTA COOKED INDIAN STYLE WITH MASALA AND SCRAMBLED EGGS.
Masala egg pasta is my favorite way to eat pasta. We are not big pasta fans here. Yes, you heard me right. I make pasta once in six months. When little A was born, i had this bright shining hope that she ll love pasta. But, well, here we are, Little A is 3.5 now and still screws up her face at pasta. Sometimes life gives you such challenges, i tell you.
So whenever i make pasta, i make it in a way that i enjoy it. Pasta with eggs is my favorite after pasta with mushrooms. I like my spice, heat, ginger and garlic in everything i eat and this applies to pasta too. I can never eat bland pasta and that s why masala egg pasta came into being.
This masala egg pasta is a very simple and forgiving dish. You can make it with any pasta you want. Macaroni, spaghetti and fusili are best bets. And add or reduce spice as you desire. But whatever you do, remember to eat it hot and wash it down with something cold and refreshing.
