Creamy pasta with Bathua(chenopodium)

I have used conch shaped pastas here.Any single colour pasta would look good.


1.Pasta - 1 cup(boiled with salt and a little olive oil will double in size almost to 2cup)
2.Maida(all purpose flower) - 2tsp
3.Milk - 1cup approximately
4.Garlic - 2sp(chopped)
5.Bay leaf - 2nos
6.Black pepper powder - 1tsp
7.Bathua leaves - 1cup(chopped)
8.Butter - 25gms
9.Fresh cream - 3tsp
10.Salt to taste
11.Olive oil - 2tsp


Heat olive oil in a frying pan and saute bathua leaves with salt.Keep aside.
Heat olive oil and butter in a frying pan.Add bay leaf and garlic.Stir fry for a few seconds till garlic changes colour.To it add maida and stir fry for 30secs approx.Now add milk stirring continuously to avoid lumps.Add salt remembering that you have already added salt in pasta and bathua earlier.Discard the bay leaf.Toss in boiled pasta and give it a nice stir.Lastly add black pepper powder and fresh cream giving a final stir.Garnish with bathua leaves.

Note- If you want less dry adjust with some more milk.
