Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pasta I used macroni pasta variety
  • 100 gms chicken 1 – 12 bite sized pieces
  • 1/4 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala powder
  • 2 tsp coriander leaves finely chopped
  • salt to taste

To roast & grind:

  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 red chillies
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tomato roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp coconut

To temper:

  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • few curry leaves

Instructions

  • Boil water, add pasta along with 1/2 tsp oil, cook until pasta becomes soft yet crunchy enough to bite.Drain water and set the pasta aside.
  • Heat a pan with oil roast the ingredients listed under ‘ to roast and grind’.
  • Add coconut and tomato after the spices are roasted well, roast the mixture till golden brown and wait till raw smell of tomatoes leave…
  • Switch off and cool down.Then transfer it to a mixer.
  • Grind it to a fine paste with little water.
  • Heat oil in a pan – add items listed under ‘to temper’ let it splutter.
  • Then add chicken pieces and saute till color changes, then add the masala paste along with red chilli and garam masala powders along with required salt.
  • Saute the masalas for 3mins.
  • Then add 1/3 cup of water and cook covered till the chicken pieces becomes soft.
  • Then let it boil till the sauce becomes slightly thick.
  • Now add cooked pasta and toss it well…
  • If it becomes very dry then sprinkle little water and then mix well for the sauce to coat well with the pasta.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and switch off.
  • Serve hot!

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.
