Pasta chronicles

What is the meal you find tastiest..the meal that you eat with maximum pleasure no matter how it tastes..
Its something you've cooked yourself..
Because only then do you realise the amount of effort that has gone into it..because you stand in the hot kitchen sweating..and in my case sneezing(because of the masala)..so when finally it is made..you are so tired that you gobble it up wid pleasure..even though it is a little inadequate in NaCl :Dhehe..for the first time i ventured into the kitchen today(perhaps cheeni kum chefgiri
inspired me:D) voluntarily and made a proper dish totally independently..(tea and omelette and maggi and sandwiches are not exactly proper dishes)i made pasta today..yipppeeeeeeeee(am still excited about havin achieved this..so dont mind if u see expressions like this interspersed in the blog), so with nothing else to do and also to show off my achievement, i decided to share my grand recipe(yayyyyy) on the blog:D

pasta(serves two)
ingredients
1 tomato(mashed into curry)
1 onion (cut in big slices)
6-7 pieces of green beans(cut into pieces)
2 tablespoon of oil
2 handfuls of macaroni ( i prefer the elbow shaped one )
1 chilli (chopped)
tomato ketchup

procedure
1) Add macaroni and around 2-3 cups of water and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a pan and keep it for about ten fifteen minutes(till the macaroni is cooked(read eatable)..taste it and ull come to know) on sim flame.
2) Add salt to taste in the tomato curry( i added about 1/2 teaspoon of salt..better less than excess..coz u cant do much about excess:D)
3) In a frying pan or kadhai, add oil and chilli. Then add the onions. Once the onions are brown, add beans and tomato curry..add tomato ketchup to taste..keep stirring continously..(everything on sim flame)
4) Now when the macaroni is well cooked, put it in the kadhai too..Stir properly..cover the kadhai and let it cook for a while..
tadaaaaaaaaa...the dish is ready...
serve hot with chilled coffee;)
