Recipe Notes

Cooking times may vary depending on the type of pasta used. For example, if cooking time on packaging says boil for 10 mins for aldente texture. Then do manual high 5 minutes(i.e half the time). Add an extra minute for well cooked pasta.

If you don’t have coriander powder then skip it and add extra curry powder.
