Simple Healthy Macaroni


Hello Friends!!!!! I was hibernating even before winter was here. Sorry for that. And I can see fall colours everywhere. Ohh!!!!! They look beautiful. Everytime I find them new and interesting. Now I am back with something u all will love. Just as simple as preparing noodles. Thanks to my friend P. Though I prepare noodles this way simple I never tried with macaroni. It is simple, filling and everyone loves it. You can add whatever veggies u like in it lot of veggies can go in it. I found some free time for a post. I prepared this long back and got to post today. My kid loved Macaroni. So this is for you.

Ingredients:

Macaroni……………2 fistfuls

Water……………….big pot full

Onions………………1/2 small

Veggies…………..carrots, capsicum, tomatoes

1 each (U can use whatever u wish)

Oil……………………1tsp

Salt………………… to taste

Coriander leaves………fistful

Curry leaves……………3

Method:

  1. Boil water in a big pot adding salt. Now add Macaroni to the boiling pot and let cook uncovered for 8-9 mins.
  2. Drain the water in a strainer and collect the Macaroni.
  3. In a pan heat oil and add onions and let them fry when they turn transparent add carrots and curry leaves.
  4. Now add capsicum let them cook and when the capsicum turns soft.
  5. Add salt and tomato let cook and add coriander leaves and macaroni.
  6. Mix well and serve hot.

Note: The capsicum gives spiciness to the dish and tomato gives the gravy which coats the macaroni well. You can make any changes u wish.

You can use wheat macaroni if u like. That’s healthy. And better. Will try it next time.
