Masala Mafia Pasta, Anyone?
Schezwan sauce and melted mozzarella on grilled vada- pav. Samosa stuffed with chicken chowmein. East meets West, on a plate.
Penne, fusilli and spaghetti tempered with a generous tadka ( chonk) with green chillies and the all- encompassing garam masala. It’s 25- year- old restaurateur Ronak Singhi’s special at Jalpaan, Hyderabad. The dish is served with a sauce prepared with mustard and cumin seeds and whole green chillies. Diners love the desi tadka to ordinarily bland pasta. But rumour has it that the Godfather isn’t happy.
