Chicken Masala Pasta Recipe - Indian Curry Pasta Recipes

Chicken Masala Pasta Recipe
Chicken Recipes or I should say nonveg recipes are the most wanted in this space....Most of the suggestions for the giveaway was to post more nonveg recipes. As you all know I don't cook nonveg(I cook only to post here) and another reason  being we buy nonveg only on sundays....very rarely we get it in weekdays when we have guests at home....so that justifies the absence of nonveg recipes here often as i usually dont click on weekends. Amma always asks me to click when she cooks to post it here but I keep ignoring it....I have to do that atleast for posting nonveg recipes here.

This chicken pasta is just my attempt to create a replica of topramen curry noodles....I have tasted it quite a few times so thought I should try this recipe with chicken. Though I couldn't match the taste exactly, it was good in its own way....it was spicy with a burst of flavours...yumm breakfast!

My Notes:

  • If you want add 1 big onion chopped finely and saute after tempering.
  • This is little spicy so adjust spice level according to your taste buds.
  • Don't make the sauce too thick then it will be very dry and will not coat the pasta.The pasta with the masalas should be juicy and not dry.
  • Cut chicken into small bite sized pieces so that it gets cooked faster and also the masalas easily blend with it.
  • Cooking chicken along with the masalas gives a nice flavour and juiciness to the chicken and chicken flavour to the pasta.
  • If you are cooking chicken separately then use chicken stock to cook pasta.
  • I used macroni pasta variety, you can choose your favourite.
