Food blogging has made me try and taste varieties of recipes from various cuisines which I have not even imagined in my life. Being a South Indian, my whole food world was just revolving around Idli, dosa, poori and chapathi . But after I became a food blogger, my eating habits and cooking have changed completely. I am really proud and happy to be a passionate food blogger. 

Pasta, Hakka Noodles, Tacos, Spaghetti, Quesadilla, Tortilla – All these terms were very new to me until I saw them in our fellow bloggers blog. I did not even know how to cook them perfectly. Slowly I am learning everything and blogging the same to help beginners like me. I am happy that I am trying out various international recipes in my kitchen. My recent crush was to try spaghetti at home. 

Spaghetti is basically a type of noodles made from durum wheat semolina. Spaghetti is the plural form of the Italian word spaghetto, which is a diminutive of spago, meaning "thin string" or "twine". It is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine ( Source: Wiki). Cooking spaghetti is not so difficult as I thought. Its procedure is more like cooking noodles. 

As a beginner, I wanted to make an easy and simple Indian style Vegetarian spaghetti recipe. I found this easy stir fried, garlicky spaghetti recipe HERE as I din’t have any vegetables in hand. I made some modifications as per my family’s taste buds and tried it for a Sunday breakfast. It came out really well with an awesome flavor of roasted onion and garlic in olive oil.  

This is just a basic spaghetti recipe. For variations ansd make it more rich, you can add sliced, sauteed vegetables and grated cheese on top before serving. Sendhil & Raksha gave a big thumbs up after eating. We relished it with tomato sauce. Its a quick breakfast recipe for bachelors and working women as there is very less chopping works. Kids would love this for sure. Do try it out for a change and share your feedback here. Lets see how to cook spaghetti and make this Indian style, vegetarian garlic spaghetti recipe with step by step pictures.
