Rich in vitamin a, protein and fibre pasta is always a hit with children, and they will enjoy this tempting curried beans concoction.
Kids always love Pasta but unfortunately they get it only for dinner or on weekends because most moms think it is not suitable for sending in the tiffin box. The good news is that pasta, when prepared properly, can be comfortably packed for tiffin. Here, we prepare Pasta in Tomato Sauce in a way that is perfect for this purpose. Fusilli, when combined with tomato pulp, tomato ketchup, herbs and spring onions is so delicious that it retains its strong aroma and flavour for over four hours. A dash of cream improves the texture and consistency of the dish, making it all the more appealing.
