A completely unique snack, prepared somewhat like crispy noodles, which is used as a garnish in Oriental recipes. To prepare the Crispy Pasta Snack, pasta is cooked and dried completely. Then, it is deep-fried and tossed with aromatic and flavourful seasonings such as mixed herbs. Allow this to cool completely and store in an air-tight jar. You can send this delightful snack to school anytime you wish, but just make sure you pack it in an air-tight tiffin box so that it remains crisp and crunchy. Also pack Bread Pizza ( Tiffin Treats) in another tiffin for a perfect short break combo.
- Combine enough water, oil and salt in a broad non-stick pan, and bring to a boil.
- Add the fusilli, mix it well and cook on a medium flame for 10 to 12 minutes or till the fusilli is 50% cooked, while stirring occasionally. Drain well and refresh using enough cold water.
- Place a muslin cloth on a clean, dry surface, spread the cooked pasta over it, and keep aside to dry for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, combine the mixed herbs, pepper powder and salt in a small bowl and mix well. Keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and deep-fry half the pasta, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
- Repeat step 5 to make the remaining crispy pastas in one more batch.
- Sprinkle the mixed herbs-pepper mixture immediately on the fried pasta and toss well.
- Allow them to cool completely, and pack in an air-tight tiffin box.
