Curried Pasta And Bean Salad By Tarla Dalal

Tarla.Dalal's picture
This recipe serves an Italian staple with an Indian flavor. Mayonnaise is blended with curry powder bringing in a refreshing twist to the taste of the pasta. Boiled beans and croutons create different textures, while garlic and dill leaves break the monotony of the curry flavoring. This pasta tastes wonderful when served chilled. Remember to toss in the crunchy croutons last. You will love the creamy, curried new taste!
