One pot Vegetable Pasta~Indian style

Very simple pasta …Indian style!


• Pasta 1 ½ cups

• Onion 1 big finely chopped

• Tomato 2 finely chopped

• Mixed veggies 1 cup (carrots, peas, corn)

• Ginger garlic paste 1 ½ tbsp

• Chili powder 1 tbsp or depending on your taste

• Turmeric powder ¼ tbsp

• Garam masala 1/2 tsp

• Coriander leaves chopped, for garnish

• Salt

• Oil


• In a pressure cooker heat some oil. Add the onions and saute them till they turn pink.

• Add the ginger garlic paste and mix. Cook for 2-3 minutes.

• Add the chopped tomatoes and cook till soft.

• Add the chili powder, turmeric powder, salt and Garam masala. Mix.

• Add the pasta. Mix well.

• Add water just enough to cover the pasta. Close the cooker

• Cook on medium heat for two whistles.

• Once the pressure is gone remove the lid and mix well.

• Garnish with coriander leaves.


• The remaining water will be like a sauce for the pasta. If you think there is a lot of water (there shouldn’t be!) just heat till the water evaporates and becomes like a sauce like consistency.

• You can also cook the pasta separately and then add it into the gravy prepared.
