I needed a break from the Christmas madness! Maybe, I thought, you might feel the same, therefore I decided to share with you today my delicious Indian style Pasta creation. Plus, not everybody is celebrating Christmas and anyway… We still need normal daily food to fill our tummies, right? Most people in my opinion would always preferably cook something quick and easy BUT rich in flavors and maybe even nutritionally balanced. something that will fill your stomach but tickle your senses, perhaps something different to surprise your loved ones as well. My pasta topped with a spicy yogurt Lemon Sauce and Prawns will give you all that in one simple recipe!
I had realized recently that I hadn’t shared any pasta dishes here, although we are quite big time pasta heads in my house! Usually I always come up with a different style of pasta dishes, yet the Indian style pasta is frequently cooked and enjoyed. My husband, who is difficult with food, realized in the last 3 years, that he cherishes fusion style food, were both the European and Indian flavors and styles come to light and are combined to new exciting creations. If you remember I had shared already a couple of Indian European fusion recipes such as the Mini Chili Quiche, the Tendli Salad, the Spicy Pumpkin Soup with Chili Cream and the Quiche de Goa with Breadfruit and Luffa Veg.
For this pasta dish I chose the long flat Tagliatelle noodles. This type is one of my favorite pastas and I use it quite often in my kitchen. The prawns in this recipe were freshly brought from the market and I removed and discarded the shell, tail and head (How to clean prawns and shrimps). After that I kept the Prawns to marinate for 30 minutes with Lemon Juice, Salt and Pepper. The Sauce consists of Garlic, Spices, Yogurt and Lemon. The recipe all in all is pretty quick to recreate as you can see! I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. =)
