Preparing macaroni is a little time consuming, but it is a favorite food of most of the kids. Therefore, most of the moms usually keep macaroni in their homes these days. Same is the case with me too. Here I would tell you how you can make a simple onion and tomato macaroni for your kid.
Ingredients
  Macaroni 250 Gram
  Onion 2 Large
  Tomato 2 Large
  Salt 4 Teaspoon
  Turmeric powder 1 Teaspoon
  Coriander powder 2 Teaspoon
  Garam masala powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Red chili powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Vinegar 1 Tablespoon
  Water 10 Cup (160 tbs) (or more for boiling macaroni)
  Oil 2 Tablespoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Take a deep frying pan or kadai and boil the macaroni in water. It will take around 10 minutes to boil the macaroni.
2. In the mean time, remove the peel of onions. Chop the tomatoes and peeled onions.
3. Once the macaroni gets boiled, strain it and rinse under running cold water. This would not allow the macaroni to stick to each other.

MAKING
4. Pour oil in the kadai and add the chopped onions to it. Allow the onions to get slightly brown, while stirring continuously.
5. After around 5 minutes, add chopped tomatoes and stir the onion tomato mix properly.
6. Cook the onion tomato masala in kadai on high flame for around 5 minutes and then cook it on low flame for another 5-7 minutes, while stirring continuously. If the masala starts sticking to the kadai, add little water to it.
9. Now add salt, turmeric powder, red chili powder, and coriander powder to the masala. Stir well.
10. Add macaroni, followed by soy sauce and vinegar. Mix all together by cooking the macaroni on high flame for around 2-3 minutes, uncovered.
11. Then reduce the heat and cook the macaroni for another 10 minutes, with the lid put over the kadai. Stir once in between, to ensure that the macaroni does not stick to the kadai.

SERVING
12. Serve the macaroni with tomato ketchup and hot cup of tea or coffee.

Story
Since the time my daughter started going to school, she puts forward demand of various new things to pack her for lunch. Now, a few days back she told me that her friend brought macaroni for lunch and she too wants to take it to school. Initially I refused her due to time shortage in the morning, but as she was quite adamant of taking it to school, and treating her friends, I had to make it for her. I prepared the onion tomato masala at night only and kept it in the fridge, to save time in the morning. And believe me, with this advance preparation, it was really quick in the morning. And on top of it, I was really happy, when my daughter returned back home and told me “mamma macaroni was awesome and you made it better than my friend’s mom”! I was really surprised to see my little 3.5 years old daughter is also recognizing taste of food!
