My Absolute Favorite Desi Macaroni. (Recipe).

Hello there, 

Hope you all doing great and had a lovely start of the week. Possible? For me, yes! this week was a bit different I got the most likes on my recently shared Instagram post today and I was beyond happy. Last night, I shared a picture of Desi Macaronis that I made for dinner and the response that I got on that picture was overwhelming. If you follow me on Istagram you might know how much I love this dish. If you don’t, you can follow me here.

So, a lot of you asked me to share the recipe of what I like to call “Desi Macaroni” so here we go!

  • Cubed tomatoes —  5 
  • Chopped coriander leaves — 2 1/2 cups.

  • Heat oil in a pan and fry onions till golden. When fried, Separate the onions and spread on a paper towel.
  • Add mince, ginger garlic paste and all the spices except oregano and basil to the oil and mix it. 
  • Blend the fried onions with yogurt, add to the mince and let it cook on low flame until water dries up.
  • When cooked, add oregano, basil, mayonnaise, ketchup , all sauces and butter to the mince and fry it on high flame until the oil is separated. 
  • Boil macaroni and strain. Add one tablespoon oil to the boiled macaroni and mix it.
  • Transfer macaroni into a cooking pot, add the prepared mince, coriander leaves, chopped tomatoes and capsicum to the macaroni and mix thoroughly. 
  • I usually add extra black pepper, soy sauce and chili sauce while mixing to make it taste even richer.
  • Cover the cooking pot with lid and let it steam for 10 minutes on low flame.
  • Serve it soft drinks and lemons. 

I basically “invented” this recipe when I used to be home alone after my college ended. Good times!. I have always received tons of compliments on this dish so I thought why not share it over here? I hope you like the recipe. I would love to hear your feedback ❤ 

Till then
Take care ❤
