Indianised Curried Panner Pasta - Indian Twist to Italian pasta

      A twist to the Italian pasta with the Indian cottage cheese and flavorful masala. Panner - Indian cottage cheese  with pasta to suit the Indian taste buds .
             These days I became so lazy in editing pics and writing a post. This recipe was made in July itself . I can cook so many recipes at a go , but writing up a post seems a huge task to me............

      As we Indians like spicy foods rather than bland dishes, I want to try my hands on this Italian favorite dish to make it to a Indian.
    I added panner to make it richer and tastier dish. Panner is the milk based product which is rich in calcium.
 This recipe will be a sure hit to kids. Even elders will like to have this flavorful and delicious curried panner pasta.
