Tricolor Fusilli for Independence Day

Every year on August 15th my mom used to make Rangeela Pooris (Poori with spinach and carrot to get the Red/Green/Cream (white) colors as in our Indian Flag)...We used to call it as India Puri...

I wanted to cook something colorful this weekend...I selected my Fav Italian dish - Pasta...I found pasta spirals in three different colors at Tesco...Red/Green/Cream...I made white sauce at home and cooked these pasta sprials in salted water and mixed with the white sauce. I also added green peas and carrots for nutrients...


Fusilli - 2 cups (Boiled in salted water for 10min and drained)
White sauce - 300ml (you can find the recipe here or in my previous post)
Green peas - 1/2 cup (boiled)
Grated carrot - 1/2 cup
Salt n Pepper - To taste


1. After preparing the white sauce with milk, flour,butter, salt n pepper, turn down the flame to low and add the grated carrot and boiled green peas.
2. Finally add the pre-boiled Fusilli and cook for 3-4min on low.

Serve warm...You can make it spicy by adding chilli powder, crushed garlic...with just salt n pepper this tastes less spicy (my preference in pasta cooking)
