There is one thing which is very typically Indian and i.e. that we love to add an Indian twist to almost all the international cuisines we eat. Whether it is Chinese, Lebanese or Italian we love to modify it to match our taste buds. The recipe that I am going to share today is the perfect example to prove the same. No matter how much we love alfredo fettuccine or the penne in pesto sauce, but there is nothing as comforting as a plate of homemade masala pasta. Keeping that in mind today I am going to share with you the recipe of masala pasta. So without any further due let’s get started with the recipe.
