I made this wonderful and tasty One Pan Spicy Past yesterday and its time to share the recipe with you all.

One Pan Spicy Pasta is very easy to make and it also has cheese in it. LOL

We will later talk more about women and their obsession with cheese but first write down the ingredients for One Pan Spicy Pasta.

300 grams of penne pasta

One can of plum tomatoes with juice. If you live abroad then you can use a can of fire roasted tomatoes instead of this.

1 and a half cup chicken broth

1 large finely chopped onion

1 tablespoon of green chili paste

1 tablespoon garlic paste

If you have a 10" deep cast iron skillet then use that if not then any other non stick pan.

Heat 2 tablespoon olive oil in pan and fry the sausages till they get puffed crispy on both sides.

Add garlic paste & finely chopped onion. Fry them on medium heat until the onion softens.

Add the uncooked pasta and stir it well to coat and mix it with the gravy.

After mixing the pasta bring the gravy to a boil and close the lid on low heat for 15 minutes.

If you think the gravy is less then add 2 tablespoon tomato paste with 1/2 glass water and then cover it with the lid for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes take of the lid and your pasta is ready. Dish it all out in one pan. DON'T EAT YET.

Cover your pasta with shred chili cheese, turn on the broiler of your oven and heat it for 3-5 minutes. That's all.

Beef Chapli Kebab and A Suprise

I think I took my friend's not eating beef comment seriously and MADE BEEF CHAPLI KEBAB TODAY. Take out your notebooks kids.

You need:

1kg minced beef

3 tomatoes

5 tbsp chopped coriander

2 onions chopped

5-6 green chillies

3 tbsp mint leaves

1/2 cup flour 

Salt as per taste

Garam masala 1 tbsp

Red chilli 1.5 tbsp

Anardana 1.5 tbsp

Coriander powder 1 tbsp

Cumin 1 tbsp

1 egg

Finely chop everything in an electronic chopper because if you don't the kebabs will break. I REPEAT THEY WILL BREAK 

Embedded image permalink

Add the half cup of flour and one egg in your kebab mixure and mix it again PROPERLY. 

Embedded image permalink

Make balls out of minced beef and press them into a pattie just like this one. 
Start frying on high flame. FLAME ON 

Fry for 3-5 minutes on each side and your(actually mine) beef chapli kebabs are ready.

But I did not stop here. Just like hunger for power drives a political party crazy, the hunger for food made me crazy.

Added a bit of vinegar, olive oil and oyster sauce in the left over ground kebab beef to make the desi tatse go away.

Made thick burger patties, preheated the grill and started some grilling to make a thick beef burgers.

After grilling burger patties 8 minutes each side on medium low flame I got this beautiful grilled thick beef burger.
