masala pasta recipe | indian style pasta recipe | indian desi pasta recipes with step by step photo and video recipe. pasta or cheese-based recipes are not native recipes to india. generally, the cheese-based recipes are bland or in other words less spiced recipes. obviously, these less spiced recipes are not appreciated by the indian taste buds and hence are extended with indian spices. one such popular kid’s lunch box recipe is the masala pasta recipe or more commonly known as desi pasta.

as i was explaining, this pasta is not an authentic recipe from its roots. there is extensive use of spice masala in this recipe. hence it would result in spicy and more importantly, gives a curry-like taste and texture to the sauce. to be honest, the traditional italian chef may not approve or consider this recipe as a pasta recipe. it is not just spicy, but also may raise the temperature with its heat. personally, with the indian taste buds, i like the combination of sweet and spicy combinations introduced by cheese and garam masala. i never prepare authentic pasta with just cheese and pepper. i even sometimes add paneer or even tofu to make it a complete meal with a source of protein in it. i have not added to this, but it is an ideal option to consider too. you may even add a choice of meat as per your choice to make it meat friendly too.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the popular desi masala pasta recipe. firstly, the use of juicy and ripe tomatoes are very critical for this recipe. i have used ripe roma tomatoes for this recipe and it helps to give you the sweet and sour taste of the final end product. secondly, i have added spices like garam masala, coriander powder, cumin with pepper for the perfect desi taste. but if you feel that it is too much of spices, you skip all and use just garam masala spice mix. lastly, the use of vegetables is open-ended and you can use them as per your choice and preference. yet avoid using vegetables like potatoes, beetroot, cauliflower or even leafy vegetables like spinach, pudina or mint leaves.
