At last, successfully posted this recipe. More than me, my hubby would be happy ;)
This one I usually prepare when I dont want to eat rice. You can add any vegetables of your choice. Simple and quick for your lunch too.
Macroni - 1 cup
Onion - 1, chopped
Garlic - 3 pods, finely chopped
Vegetables - 1 cup (Mix of carrots, beans, peas, fresh corn kernels, etc - I used beans, peas & corn kernels)
Butter - 1 teaspoon
Corn flour - 1 tablespoon (optional, if you want your soup to be thick)
Milk - 1 cup
Pepper powder - as spicy required
Coriander leaves/Spring onions - few, chopped for garnishing
Salt to taste
Boil macroni in 1-1/2 cups of water with salt and 1 teaspoon of cooking oil.
Cook for few minutes until they are soft. Drain the water and keep aside.
Heat butter in a pan. Add chopped garlic and onions and fry for 5 minutes.
Add the vegetables and saute for few minutes. Add 3 cups of water and bring it to boil.
Once they are cooked, add macroni, salt to taste. Dissolve corn flour in 1/4 cup of water and add to it.
Stir well and add milk to it. Heat for 5-10 minutes.
Garnish with coriander leaves, pepper powder and serve hot.
Note: Vegetable or Chicken broth can also be added instead of water.
Cooking time : 20-30 minutes
Serves 3 persons
