Pasta with Stir fried Veggie & Chickpeas Salad

ello All,

Hope all of you are doing fine and had a great new year start & Yes am fine too. It's been long since I blog, just caught up with few things guys and Thank U all for asking my well being.

Let's start with the Salad, it's a simple & colourful salad I made with just few hand picked things like:

Chickpeas Salad


Chickpeas - 3 tbs [Soaked few hours and boiled]
Cucumber - 2 tbs [ finely chopped]
Carrot - 1 [finely chopped]
Grape - 2tbs [ chopped]
Salt - to sprinkle
Chat Masala - 1/2 tps
Spring Onion - 1 tbs [ finely chopped]


Toss all the ingredients and enjoy :-).. simple isn't it? :-) Ahh btw these spring onion are from my little garden...you can replace them with onion too.

For Pasta with Stir fried Veggies again simple pasta recipe and my recipe changes every now and then as I just add ingredients whatever I feel like.


Shell Pasta - 2 cups
Carrot - 1 [ chopped]
Peas - 3 tbs [frozen]
Tomato - 2
Onion - 1
Soya Chunks - 6-8
Kasturi Methi - 2 tbs
Garlic - 2tbs [chopped]

Salt - to taste


1. Boil water in a large pot/pan with little salt and 1tbs of oil and cook pasta until done. Strain the pasta, run over cold water and keep aside.

2. Boil tomato, onion and red chilli for 5mins in hot water and puree it.

3. Soak soya chunks in hot water for 10mins, squeeze and keep aside.
