Kirti Nandavanam    You dont have to actually bake it .All the ingredients are already cooked, so the baking is actually for the grilled taste , take a heavy tava , keep the dish with the pasta on the tawa , cover it .Watch so that it doesnt burn the base

Tarla Dalal    Yes, you can follow this method of cooking on a thick tava.
