On a rainy day,i want something apart from usual lunch and i want simple and also a spicy light meal.So i searched the pantry and i saw a packet full of elbow pasta and searched for the recipe.Suddenly i thought a recipe which i saw from her blog with butter masala base.Without any second thought,i started to prepare the recipe but made in different method.I dont want the aroma of ginger garlic paste in the recipe,so i saute it along with tomato and onion and then made the puree from that.I did not added any whole spices in the recipe,just added garam masala for making it spicy and aromatic.I added kashmiri red chilli powder for less heat in the recipe.You can use regular red chilli powder in the recipe if you want more spiciness.
