Keema Pasta ~ A Delmonte Treat


Frankly speaking, I am not a fan of pasta. No matter how good it is cooked, it fails to impress me. However, imagine my joy when I developed a sudden liking towards it, thanks to Del Monte.

You might have heard the proverb "look good: taste good", well that's what inspired me to bring home the Delicious and cute looking bow-shaped pasta by Del monte. The moment my eyes fell on these pastas on the Indiblogger website, I booked one for myself asap.
After the pasta was home, it was time to get cooking and give light to all these years of practice and perfection. I love food, am a Big time foodie but the irony is, I love cooking what I eat more! :D

I chose to cook a non-veg dish as it kind of suited the recipe I had in mind. The first step was planning and deciding the ingredients which was quite fun. Next came the actual fun part where I experimented ;)

- Del Monte bow-shaped pasta 500gm (Any other shape can also be used)
- Mutton Keema 250gm
- Olive oil 3tbsp (you can use any other cooking oil too)
- Ginger Garlic paste 8tbsp
- One medium size onion finely chopped
- Mustard seeds 1/2tsp
- Saunf 1/2tsp
- Maida flour 2tbsp
- 3 Red chillies
- 5 garlic heads
- Coriander for garnishing
- Spices
- Hot chillies and tomato sauce (Optional)

Preparation time: 15 Mins
Cooking: 15 mins

1* First take a heavy bottom kadhai and boil 1 1/2 liters of water. Add the cute bow shaped Del Monte pastas to the boiling kadhai and let cook until soft yet firm.

2* At the same time take Mutton Keema, wash and cook it in a cooker by adding some salt, a pinch of turmeric powder garlic heads,spices, saunf, and Red chillies. Cook until edible.

3* When pasta is cooked, drain the excess water and keep the pasta aside.
4* Now take another kadhai and add oil to it. When hot, add mustard seeds, and the finely chopped onion. Next add ginger garlic paste and fry until golden. Add salt as per taste. Next add the Maida flour to it.
5* Add the cooked pasta to this. Take the cooked keema and mash it until all the ingredients have mixed. Add it to the kadhai and mix well.

6* Garnish with coriander and hot chilli sauce. Serve immediately. Tada! :D

It's such a simple yet such a delicious recipe :D It was so fun experimenting and making my own recipe.
*While the Pasta is cooking, keep stirring it to avoid them from sticking to the bottom.
*You can add vegetables to this too. Dice them and add cook with the pasta itself.
*If you can't serve immediately, make sure you heat the dish in the oven/stove before serving.
*If you want a little more gravy in the dish, add more ginger garlic paste then mentioned.
