Parijat   (July 31, 2013)
Can it be made with egg??? if yes, how to add an egg and when??
Dahlia (S.I.R. Author)   (August 1, 2013)
after you make the masala break 2 or 3 eggs and mix it. It will get scrambled. Once it is cooked and is nicely mixed with the sauce, toss in the pasta. Awesome egg pasta will be ready.

Comment by gurneet kaur
         if i just add onion,tomato,salt and garam masala . then the macroni will taste well or not.....
 
Reply :-
         Do try it Gurneet. Taste is something very personal. I like things hot and spicy but it may not be the case with someone else.

Comment by Namagiri Sridhar
         Is there a healthy substitute for maida in this recipe?
 
Reply :-
        Hi Namagiri, If you are very health consious you can skip the maida. The maida helps the sauce to nicely stick to the pasta.

Hello Dahlia,
Thanks for the recipe "Indian-style Pasta" !!!, had it not been there I would have to gone sleep with omlette and bread.

Simple to make and tasted good. Just had one doubt why is there a need to add all purpose flour?

I am too from Kanyakumari, how come you have suggested for 1 teaspoon of chilly. I added only 1/3 tea spoon chilly and I can sense it to be little too much for me :). As far I know people from Kanyakumari take more of pepper than chilly.
Thanks and keep it going!!!
Thanks
S James Shaji

      Hi James, The maida (all purpose flour) gives a nice saucy texture which coats well arouns each pasta.
      About the chilly powder, its purely personal taste. Add as much as you are comfortable with. Even I use lot of pepper in my cooking. I love the pepper taste.
