Pasta Pakora | Pakoda with Pasta | Step by Step Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Well after couple of days of unending thoughts of what next to make, will twist really be a twist and unrelenting steam of thoughts going forth and back, even the meetings at work were not left without these thoughts cropping up at times. Imagine sitting in middle of a serious technology meeting and suddenly the thought that comes to mind is not how to change the logic, rather how to twist a recipe!
Anyway this pasta pakoda came to mind sometime during my ride back home, with so much traffic and being helpless to do anything but let the thoughts take over and I find that I can actually come up with brilliant ideas. Back home when I was excited to share my brainwave with Amma, guess what happens! She says “yes I recently saw this in the Tele!” Imagine my shock, I am not the first to get such brilliant ideas???
Then I thought I might anyway go ahead with the idea and set about making it. I was actually thinking about Penne Pakoda, just for the rhyme those two words have, but with elbow macaronis overflowing in the pantry, I had to do with this, so the name Pasta Pakoda.
Though Konda was reluctant to taste first, after the first go, she wanted more. I had to confess that it was only an experiment and will make more since she likes it.
