Mac and eggs – Indian style

Most kids love mac and cheese. N is no different. She loves macaroni. I had started it so that she can survive hotel food, whenever we travel and stay in resorts. From the time she learned of “Yanke Doodle” rhyme song, and found the word “macaroni” in it, her demand for macaroni has increased exponentially. I too love Italian food like pizza and pasta but not on all days! Its like you dine at Barbeque Nation. Before visiting the restaurant, you feel you haven’t been there in ages, and you start yearning for the fried starters. But once you come out of the restaurant, you feel so full that you pledge that you would never visit this restaurant again. Its the same with me for pasta. Though I order it first, the creaminess of the sauce makes me feel so full and awful till the rim of the neck and I end up passing rest of the meal towards my faithful, loyal and loving husband to finish off the rest.

So after being pampered by the grandparents who had come to Bangalore for our Rajasthan trip, N wanted macaroni to waive off her ‘loneliness’. I did not feel like having the cream sauce and was wondering what twist to bring into it, when I saw the recipe in the MTR macaroni back cover. It asked for red chilli powder and garam masala, but N did not liked spicy food. So the below is my twisted recipe I did at the end.

200ml(1 glass) pasta boiled and drained as per the instructions on the packet
1 small onion
1 small tomato
1 small carrot
2 eggs
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 Amul cheese slice.
For adults, I would have added generous amount of pepper, red chilli flakes and oregano instead of the cheese slice. N love eggs, so I added two to give it more flavour.

1. Boil and drain 200ml (1 glass) of pasta as per the instructions on the packet. I do add salt and a bit of olive oil while boiling pasta.
2. Heat olive oil in a pan, and add chopped onions to it .
3. After 1-2 mins, add the chopped tomato and grated carrot and saute till it cooks.
4. Add some ginger garlic paste, sprinkle some salt on it and give it a toss.
5. Crack two eggs into the pan and stir occasionally till scrambled eggs are formed.
6. Add the drained pasta into the pan. Toss and serve with grated cheese on top.
Do try the same or go “Fearless” and experiment with ingredients to give it your own twist.


  1. I’m not really a macaroni and cheese fan, but this looks interesting. I’ve never tried itwith eggs before. BTW, I like the title of your blog and will be coming back to read more.
