Intro: Crazy Heart !
Standing in the kitchen and wondering what to prepare..... Opening the fridge door and staring at it for 5 min... opening all the drawers and again staring for another 10 min.... led to the invention of a new recipe.
My experiment was a success when my family gave me thumbs up for it. Though i did make it a couple of more times, with minor changes for my satisfaction.
I usually do enjoy experimenting a lot now a days and most of the time they do turn out to be gud. so here's one of that. Please try it out and let me know...how u find it...
Preparation time: 15 min
Cooking time:10 min
Step 1: Ingredients & Supplies !
1) Milk : 1 Cup
2) Corn Flour : 1 table spoon
3) Spaghetti : 15-20 strands
4) Carrot : 1 medium.
5) French Beans : 7-8 pieces
6) Green Pepper : 1/2 medium
7) Chili flakes : 3/4 tspn
8) Oregano : 1/2 tspn
9) Black pepper powder : 1/2 tspn
10) Salt : to taste
11) Oil : to saute
1) Shallow frying pan ( more like something to saute) & spatula
2) A Hand Chopper
4) a non stick pot
Step 2: Getting It All Ready !!
Take the carrot, french beans & green pepper and cut it into medium side pieces.
Using a chopper, cut them into tiny pieces. do this process with each of them individually.
Once done, add all of them in a mixing bowl and mix it all up !!
leave it aside.
Do the similar thing with spaghetti , but keep it aside. Do not mix it with others.
Step 3: White Sauce !
Heat a non stick pan on medium flame, add milk and corn flour.
Steer & Mix.
Add Red chili flakes, Oregano, Black pepper powder & salt.
Mix it up and keep on steering it slowly till the mixture starts to thicken.
Let it get nice n thick. ( add more corn flour if thickness is not being achieved) This will be used as a binding agent.
Remove it from the stove and add all the chopped veggies. Mix it good.
Note: Do not add your veggies before the mixture thickens. as veggies tend to give out moisture and will not let the white sauce thicken ( i already got burnt trying it the other way round :( )
Let it cool.
Step 4: Shape Them !
On a flat surface, spread the chopped spaghetti and spread it evenly.
Once your mixture is cool enough, start shaping them. make them round or make hearts out of it( i like this shape best coz of the size)....u can even make it rectangular. But which ever you make...make it big.
Cover them with spaghetti on all the sides, evenly.
Step 5: Saute/ Shallow Fry
Heat oil in a flat pan, and slowly place each of them on the oil.
Flip it when turns golden brown. Let it cook .
Once its cooked on both the sides, place it on the butter paper on a plate in a slightly tilted fashion to drain of all the excess oil.
Garnish , Serve with ketchup on side and start hogging.
