Note:
  • Add more red chili for a spicier version.
  • You can also add grated cheese when serving it kids.Cheese reduces the spice so add it when you make a spicier version.
  • You can also make pasta with your left over chutney(mint-coriander chutney/chat chutney).
  • Add any Italian seasoning or oregano-chili flakes if you wish.
  • You can use any style of pasta like fusili,rotini,shell,bow-tie,penne etc.
