Pepper Macaroni

Spicy Peppery Macaroni is on its way to Spice it up, the Weekend Breakfast Blogging event hosted by the lovely Trupti of The Spice who loved Me.

Macaroni is best eaten at...all times! Especially if its spiced up with tomatoes and a great breakfast item to keep us running till our hungry pangs starts attacking us by lunch.

Macaroni is something like an alien at first friend once acquainted. South Indians at best don't prefer continental stuff what with their mild flavors, but when it goes through a change and takes a Indian avatar...there is nothing like that to beat it.

I am referring to my own experience with this, when everybody home were reluctant to accept it and I had to pour in enough interesting items to attract hubby dear to eat this for breakfast. Its fast to prepare, tasty to eat and of course makes your day. Now its part of our regular breakfast items.

My daughter at one point wanted macaroni for all her meals.

The spicy item in this recipe is of course lots of Pepper...

Here you go for the recipe.

Ingredients needed

Macaroni - 2 cups
Onions - 1 big
Tomatoes - 2 medium
Pepper powder 2 tsp
Chilli powder
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves

Method to prepare:

Boil macaroni in enough water to get soft cooked ones. Drain the water and pour little oil so that it doesn't stick together.

Chop Onions and Tomatoes finally . Heat Oil in kadai, add chopped onions, sauté well to get golden colour. Then add tomatoes.

Add salt so that tomatoes so that they become soft soon. Then add chilli powder. Once oil starts coming out, add cooked macaroni.

Sim and cook for 5 mins. Finally add pepper and Coriander leaves.
Yummy Macaroni is ready. Enjoy!

If you add grated Cheese finally, it tastes better and becomes cheesy pepper Macaroni!

hi, sri

i am a new entry in this blog, and love cooking. i liked the dish, one tip i wana give is that, after boiling the macroni put it immediatly to the tomato, onion mixture. so that macroni's will not stick to each other, and there is no need of that extra oil.
