Cheesy Macaroni

My little toddler loves to eat this particular Macaroni dish. She is very picky with her food I try my level best to convince her to indulge some food. As she is learning ABCD I picked up this alphabetical macaroni from the store and introduced it to her and the end results were amazing she loved it and wanted to eat more. I have added some veggies and chicken to it. Vegetarians can minus the chicken. So here goes the recipe.

Ingredients
Macaroni - 1/2 cup
garlic - 2 to 3 flakes chopped fine
carrot - 1 tbs finely chopped
onion - 1 tbs finely chopped
tomato - 1  to 2 tbs grated
spring onions - 1 tbs (optional green part)
boiled and shredded chicken - 1 tbs (optional)
cheese - mozzarella or cheddar 1 tbs
pepper powder - 1/2 tsp or less as per the intake of spice
oil - 2 tbs (olive oil opt)
salt to taste.

Method
Boil water in a cooking vessel along with some salt and oil. Once the water boils add the macaroni and let it cook until soft. Once done strain the macaroni and discard the water.

Heat oil in a kadhai add the chopped garlic along with onion fry the onion until it turns pink then add tomato and cook until they turn mushy now add turmeric and salt stir fry for a minute add the carrot, spring onions and chicken cook until carrots become soft now add the macaroni along with pepper powder check for salt if you need add some now lastly add the cheese cook for a minute and switch off the flame. The macaroni is ready.

I hope you like it!

P.S. Maggie masala can also be added for more flavors.
