hi everyone! this is my first time actually posting any recipe in this forum... and taking my sudden obsession for various types of Pasta, into consideration, i've decided to post a recipe for a Pasta salad! Big smile

Indian Pasta Salad

 

Ingredients:

    1-1/2cup water
    1/3cup toasted cashew pieces
    1/4cup lemon juice
    2tablespoons ghee
    1tablespoons mustard seeds
    1/2 to 1tsp red chilli powder
    1/4 tsp asafoetida [turmeric powder]
    3 tomatoes, seeded and diced
    10 ounces thin vermicelli [the pasta]
    8 ounces thin green beans, steamed
    salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro [Coriander] 


Method:

    Place the water, half of nuts, and the lemon juice in a blender; process until smooth.
    Heat ghee add and mustard seeds.
    When they crackle, add the asafoetida.
    Then add tomatoes, chilli powder and rest of the cashews; remove from heat.
    Bring a large pot of salted water to boil; add the green beans.
    When the beans are just shy of cooked, stir in the vermicelli.
    Cook until the pasta is tender but firm.
    Drain well and add the pasta to the ingredients in the saucepan.
    Season with salt and pepper.
  1. Stir in the remaining cilantro and garnish with the remaining cashews.

Serve & Enjoy! Big smile

Looks Yummy! I make it almost the same way!  I add green/red bell pepper and some kidney beans to make it little protein rich.
