Vegetable Pasta Indian Style

 Vegetable Pasta Indian Style
Pasta, native of Italy has become popular in  India. Most of the pasta I have tasted in restaurants either use cheese or less spicy when compared to our Indian food. I got bored of tasting pasta with cheese, pepper or chilli flakes.. So I tried pasta in Indian style. An Indo-Italian fusion. Lot of vegetables are used in the preparation of this pasta. A healthy choice for kids. This makes an excellent kid's lunch box recipe. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing Mixed Vegetable Pasta in Indian style.
