Macaroni Hot Pot recipe with step by step photos
We have a huge collection of recipes using macaroni on our website.So, apart from this Macaroni Hot Pot recipe, you can try out other recipes like:
In a deep non-stick pan, add enough water to boil the macaroni in and add the oil to it.
Now add the salt. We add the salt at this stage as it not only helps the water come to a boil faster but also gives flavor to the pasta. Generously salt the water.
Let the water come to a rapid boil.
Once it starts boiling, add the macaroni. We have used 3/4 cup raw macaroni for obtaining 1 1/2 cup of cooked macaroni.
Cook on a medium flame for 10-12 minutes, while stirring occasionally. The macaroni should be cooked until they are al dente i.e. cooked to be firm to the bite and should not be mushy or sticky.
Drain well and throw the water away.
Refresh the macaroni under cold water. This ensures that they stop cooking. Keep aside.
Transfer the macaroni to a clean and dry plate.
Cover with a lid to prevent the macaroni from drying up.
To make the Macaroni Hot pot, first heat the butter in a broad non-stick pan.
To this, add the onion rings.
Then add the capsicum as well.
Mix well and sauté them on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
Once a little translucent, remove half of the onion and capsicum rings in a plate to be used as topping and keep aside.
Now add the chopped garlic to the pan. You can use garlic paste as well.
Mix well and sauté for 2 minutes till the rawness from the garlic goes away.
Add the blanched and chopped tomatoes.
Also, add chilli powder for spice.
Mix well and sauté for 2-3 more minutes. Add the sugar to counter the sourness of the tomatoes.
Add the baked beans as well.
Then, add the cooked macaroni and the oregano. It imparts a warm peppery flavour and hence enhances the taste.
Add tomato ketchup for colour and taste.
Finally, add salt to the Macaroni Hot pot.
Mix gently and cook on a medium flame for another 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
Turn off the flame and transfer the mixture to a deep baking dish.
Spread it evenly with the back of a spoon.
Arrange the prepared onion and capsicum rings on top evenly.
Sprinkle the cheese evenly over it. We have used processed cheese here, you can use mozzarella as well.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C (400°F) for 10 to 15 minutes or till the cheese melts.
Serve the Macaroni hot pot with Garlic bread and a bowl of hot soup immediately.
