Children enjoy pasta. Here is another way you can dish out pasta for children. Half-boiled and deep-fried, they become a crunchy treat to eat. You can toss them with seasoning and serve. Experiment with pasta shapes and colours.
- Combine enough water, oil and salt in a broad non- stick pan, and bring to a boil.
- Add the pasta, mix it well and cook on a medium flame for 10 to 12 minutes or till the pasta 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 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 deep-fry the remaining pasta in one more batch.
- Sprinkle the mixed herbs-pepper mixture on the fried pasta and toss well.
- Keep aside to cool completely.
- Store in an air-tight container and use as required.
