Stir Fried Veggies over Farfalle

A dish I made in Dec 2008 and shared in Orkut. At last, I got the time to port it to my blog. Back then, I had not refined my Italian cuisine. So this turned out to be an Indo-Italian-Chinese fusion food. Having said that, it wasn't bad.


  1. Farfalle (any kind of pasta, noodles or even rice would do as alternative)
  2. Vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower florets, carrots, onions, mushrooms, capsicum, beans, corn, peas, whatever in the freezer. Spare the okra and radishes though.)
  3. Margarine or oil or butter
  4. Soy sauce
  5. Tomato ketchup
  6. Cumin seeds (Jeera)
  7. Red chilly flakes
  8. Turmeric powder
  9. Salt


  1. Boil and cook the pasta / noodles / rice (the starch / base) and keep it ready.
  2. On a large frying pan, heat oil / butter and season with cumin and red chillies. 
  3. Add the vegetables and stir fry them till slightly roasted. 
  4. Add turmeric powder and salt. 
  5. Then add the ketchup and soy sauce to the vegetables. Keep stirring them under low heat. 
  6. You may add the water from cooked pasta to get a little sauce like consistency.
  7. Cover the vegetables and cook for 5 minutes. 
  8. Transfer the pasta / noodles / rice to a serving plate and add the stir fried vegetables over it. 
  9. Add finely chopped coriander leaves to garnish.
