Recipe Notes

For pasta cut the cooking time in half than what is mentioned on the package instructions . My package said 9-11 mins to cook pasta on stove top. For aldente - do 5 minutes and For well cooked pasta - do 6 minutes.

Vegans Can use Oil instead of ghee/butter and Paneer with Tofu or Vegan meat balls.
