Ingredients:

Fussilli/penne/any pasta: 1 cup

Veggies: corn, capsicums, bottlegourd, any available vegetable.

Onion: 1 big chopped

Garlic ginger paste: 1 tsp

Water: 1-2 cups depending on the type of pasta

Spices: Salt, red chili powder, dhaniya powder according to taste

Directions:

1. Chop up the available veggies, here i took bottle gourd, corn, tomatoes, green chilies, onion(not in pic).


2. In a pressure cooker, heat some oil, put jeera seeds, let it splutter, put the chopped green chilies, onion and saute well. Put ginger garlic paste and cook till the raw smell goes away.
