Tri Color Pasta | Independence Day Special

Hi my lovely friends !!
'31 States, 1618 Languages, 6400 Castes, 6 Religion, 6 Ethnic Groups, 29 Major festivals & 1 Country ! INDIA & I am proud to be an Indian !'
I love the colors of Indian Flag. Also one more thing I love is Pasta. I was thinking to make something special for this special day & I came up with an idea of Tri-Color Pasta symbolizing the Tri-colors of India.



Pasta is one of the favorite dishes among children & adults both. Try this special Tri-Color
Pasta today & surprise everyone. It will definitely take some time to prepare but the results will be worth it. So lets start without delay.

We will be preparing WHITE, RED & GREEN Pastas separately & then at the end will consolidate all.

For White Pasta

Ingredients  :-

  • Tri Color Rotini Pasta ( Select only white color pasta )
  • 1-2 tablespoon All Purpose Flour ( Maida )

  • 1 small Chopped Onions

  • 1 tsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • Salt to taste

Method  :-

Step 1.  Boil the pasta for 7-8 minutes depending upon its company & keep it aside. It is always better not to have the boiled pasta kept aside for too long as it starts getting sticky & loses its charm.

Preparation of White Sauce  :-
Step 1.  To create white sauce heat 1 tsp butter in a pan.
Step 2.  Add all purpose flour once the butter is melted.
Step 3.  Gradually add milk & keep stirring. You should not be having any lumps in the sauce. Regular stirring will help to avoid it.
Step 4.  Bring the sauce to the boil, & then simmer. You can add cheese after it & allow it to melt. Mix it well & keep it aside.

Preparation of White Pasta :-
Step 1.  Heat oil in a pan.
Step 2.  Saute onion & garlic till onions become golden brown.
Step 3.  Add the White Sauce & Pasta. Mix it well for 2-3 min more.

Your White Pasta is ready.

Your Red Pasta is ready.

Your Green Pasta is ready.

Final Preparation - Tri Color Pasta


Step 1.  Once we have all red, white & green pasta ready all we need is to decorate it & align it properly. You can refer the picture for it.
Step 2.  Peel an onion to get circular layers. Using a perfect circular layer put it in the center of the White Pasta.
Step 3.  Serve hot & enjoy.

Note :- If you are not getting try color pasta you can use normal pasta also. You can use the same recipe & add a pinch of food colors to give the pasta different colors.
