Dried pasta may not be the first ingredient you associate with Indian cooking, but in Sindhi cuisine, pasta was brought in from abroad via traders years ago, and has now become a commonplace ingredient. Here, macaroni is cooked in a tomato sauce spiked with ginger, garlic, cumin, and potatoes, yielding something resembling a pasta stew.

Directions

  1. In a skillet over low-medium heat, heat the vegetable oil.
  2. Add the cumin seeds. Cook until the seeds begin to crackle.
  3. Add the ginger-garlic paste and onion. Sauté for 2–3 minutes.
  4. Stir in the coriander, turmeric, and red chile powder. Sauté for 1 minute.
  5. Add the tomatoes and tomato purée. Sauté until the tomatoes soften.
  6. Stir in the potatoes and macaroni. Season to taste with salt and garnish with cilantro. Serve hot.
