I am a big fan of pasta and “QeemaVeggie Macaroni” was the first ever pasta dish I ever tried, obviously made by mom. You can make it for lunch or dinner and enjoy a spicy pasta meal with your family....

Qeema Veggie Macaroni


200g elbow macaroni 
250 g minced meat (chicken/mutton/beef)
1/2 bunch of fresh coriander
2-3 green chilies
4 cloves of garlic
1 medium onion
Salt to taste
1tsp red chili powder (or according to your taste)
1 cup boiled peas (
1 large green capsicum thinly sliced
2-3 large tomatoes (deseeded and thinly sliced)
1/4  cup oil 


1) Put the onions, garlic cloves, green chilies and green coriander into blender and make a paste. 

2) Take a big pan/pot, add mince, green paste, salt and red chili powder and half a cup of water. Let it cook on medium-low heat for half hour or until the qeema (mince) is done. 

3) Mean while you can boil the macaroni according to instructions given on pack. Drain, rinse and keep aside.

4) Once the water in mince has dried add 2 tbsp of oil and fry the qeema for 5-6 minutes on medium-high flame, then add in the green capsicum and peas and stir fry for 4 mins. Now add in the macaroni mix well, add in the tomatoes . 

5) Heat 1/4 cups of oil in a pan (to give extra desi touch you can add in 1tsp of cumin seeds) and pour it on top of macaroni. Stir it once, keep covered on low flame for 5 mins. Serve hot.

Note: If you want to give it extra touch of spicyness try adding in some hot sauce according to your taste.
