• 1 cup – macaroni
• 1/4 cup – chopped Onions
• 1/4 cup – peas and chopped Carrots
• 1/4 cup – Cauliflower florets, cut small

  1. In a saucepan boil water. Add macaroni and one tbsp salt and stir. Macaroni will turn soft in 4-5 min.
  2. When cooked, strain the hot water using a strainer and run cold water through so the macaroni does not stick to each other.

  4. Stir-fry them until they turn pink.
  5. Next add cauliflower florets and stir constantly until they turn pink.
  6. Add onions, peas and carrots and any other vegetables you wish to add.

  8. Add tomatoes and salt.
  9. Cover the pan and cook for 1 min.
  10. Finally add macaroni and garam masala.
  11. While stirring cook for 3 more min so as to get the masala coated to the vegetables and macaroni.
