Pasta Curryus

Pasta with Curried vegetables (onions, bell pepper, squash, mushrooms), cheese and yogurt

How did I manage to think about this? Or did I think?

I had oyster mushroom lying around … which meant most of it had gone bad. Of course, I didn’t know that till I pulled it out of the refrigerator halfway thru.

This turned out pretty good; except that it was little bit too hot. I think the thai chillies are little bit hotter than indian chillies. So either need to seeded them or use fewer.


~3 cups pasta boiled in salted water till fork tender or al dente
~1-2 cups pasta broth (the liquid left over after pasta is cooked)
2 medium onions sliced and cut long
1 green bell pepper sliced and cut long
1 clove garlic minced
~1/4 tsp ginger minced
pinch mustard seeds
pinch cumin seeds
pinch astefoida
2-3 thai chillies chopped (too lazy to seed ’em)
1 tsp (or as famously said: “to taste”) salt
2 medium plum tomato coarsely chopped
1 medium zucchini sliced
1 medium yellow squash sliced
6-7 florets of oyster mushrooms
some cilantro chopped (for garnish)
some mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup plain blended yogurt
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp cumin-coriander powder
1/2 tsp garam-masala
~1/4 tsp turmeric powder
~1/2 tsp grounded black pepper
~1-2 tsp xtra virgin olive oil
