Like baked pav bhaji pasta

  1. If you like the baked pav bhaji pasta recipe | pav bhaji pasta | Indo Italian pav bhaji pasta | given below is the list to similar recipes :

For cooking the fusilli pasta

  1. For boiling the fusilli pasta for baked pav bhaji pasta recipe | pav bhaji pasta | Indo Italian pav bhaji pasta | perfectly, boil enough of water in a large pan. If you use a small pan, the pasta will clump together on boiling. 
  2. Cover the pan with a lid to make the water boil faster.
  3. Once the water boils vigorously, add salt to taste. The salt will season the fusilli pasta as they cook, which will give you flavorful pasta. Also, the water when tasted should taste like seawater. 
  4. Add the pasta to the boiling water and stir once.
  5. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally and gently until the pasta is tender. Cooking times may vary with the size and the thickness of the pasta. Very small pasta (like macaroni, fusilli, conchiglie, penne) may cook in 5 to 7 minutes. Larger shapes (like spaghetti, fettuccine, dried lasagne sheets) may require 10 to 12 minutes. Refer to the package instructions to understand the exact cooking time.
  6. After 5 to 7 minutes, remove one pasta out of the water and keep it aside to cool a little. Bite into the pasta or break it with a fork to check if it's still hard in the center or if it's cooked as you like. For perfectly cooked pasta, cook until it's al dente, which means it is a little firm in the center.
  7. Immediately drain the cooked pasta into a sieve or colander.
  8. Transfer to a bowl of cold water or refresh under running water to prevent overcooking.
  9. Drain again and keep aside.
  10. If the pasta is not to be used immediately, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to it and toss it. Though it makes difficult for the pasta to absorb/coat the sauce. 

How to make baked pav bhaji pasta

  1. For making baked pav bhaji pasta recipe | pav bhaji pasta | Indo Italian pav bhaji pasta | heat the butter and olive oil in a broad non-stick pan. While olive oil is widely used in Italian cooking, butter gives an authentic delicious flavour to the pav bhaji pasta. The oil even prevents the butter from burning.
  2. Add the garlic.
  3. Add onion.
  4. Mix well and sautè on a medium flame for 1 minute or until the onions are soft and raw aroma goes away.
  5. Add tomatoes. If you are lazy to chop then simply puree them to a paste and add to the pan.
  6. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally. The tomatoes should turn soft and mushy.
  7. Add the pav bhaji masala. My kitchen is always stocked with a jar of aromatic homemade pav bhaji masala. Check out Pav bhaji masala recipe with detailed step by step images. 
  8. Add garam masala.
  9. Add chilli powder.  Increase or decrease the quantity as per the spice you prefer.
  10. Add capsicum. Other veggies like cauliflower, carrots, bell peppers can also be added.
  11. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  12. Add the fusilli. While we have used fusilli pasta, you can make use of any other pasta variants like spaghetti, penne or macaroni.
  13. Add milk to adjust the consistency. You can even make use of water or reserved pasta water for the same purpose.
  14. Add fresh cream to give a rich, creamy taste.
  15. Add ¼ cup cheese.
  16. Add basil. When a recipe calls for fresh basil, tear it with your fingers rather than chopping it with a knife, to get the best flavor.
  17. Add oregano. Add whatever herbs are easily available and you would like to enhance the pav bhaji pasta.
  18. Add chilli flakes. The quantity can be adjusted as per your liking.
  19. Add salt. We have added salt while boiling the pasta, butter and cheese both contain salt so, add it accordingly.
  20. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.

How to assemble baked pav bhaji pasta

Tarla Dalal    Hi, If you make from afternoon it will get dry what you can do is make till step 4 but do not add the fusilli, just before guests come, re heat add little milk more and the fusilli mix well and cook 1 minute, then follow the recipe for baking.
