Spicy Tomato Macaroni with Cheese is a delicious pasta made Indian Style with Indian Spices and finally garnished with cheese. A typical fusion dish makes a wonderful choice for breakfast or for an evening snack.

We love macaroni for breakfast. It gives us a change from the usual Idli or Dosa we make regularly. I was happy that my kids love pasta too. Tomato Macaroni has been a regular one since my childhood with Amma making it regularly for breakfast on Sundays. It also served as quick breakfast option on those hurried days.

I have already posted different pasta dishes, like
Macaroni in Tomato Sauce
Quick Macaroni in Tomato Sauce,
Macaroni with White Sauce
Penne Pasta with Onion, Tomato sauce

So it was a different experience trying out the recipe given in the macaroni packet.

Spicy Tomato Macaroni with Cheese

Ingredients Needed:

1 cup Macaroni
1.5 cups Water
1/2 medium Onions
1 medium Tomato
1/2 tsp Red Chili Powder
1/4 tsp Garam Masala
1/4 tsp Cumin Powder / Jeera powder
Salt to taste
1 tsp Cooking Oil
1 cube Cheese

Method to prepare:

In a nonstick pan, add oil, onions. Saute the onions well. Then add salt, spice powders. Once itโ€™s cooked, add the tomatoes and cook for a couple of minutes.
Add water to the pan and bring to boil. This can be done quickly by covering it with lid.
Then add the macaroni and simmer for 10 mins, stirring it frequently.
Simmer till the pasta is cooked and water is all absorbed.
Grate the cheese and add to the pasta when itโ€™s still hot. Serve it hot.

Notes: I added the tomatoes as such, you can puree it so that the skin is not there as a hindrance to kids when they eat. Reduce the spice or increase as required.
