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!!!

      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.
