How to make Keema Wali Macaroni
I know that macaroni is not a Pakistani dish but the way we cook in Pakistan with keema and every masala, that pretty much makes it a very very desi dish. 🙂
If you are new to cooking then you must learn to cook this dish. This is easy to cook and everyone just loves it.
Whenever I make it, it gets finished within minutes.
- One pack of elbow macaroni
- Ground Beef 250g
- Sausages 2 cut in thin slices and fried
- Capsicum 1 cut in cubes
- Onion 1 chopped
- Tomatoes 2 finely chopped
- Garlic Crushed 2 tbsp
- Carrot 1 diced
- Cabbage 1/4 cut in squares
- Soy Sauce 2 tbsp
- Tomato Ketchup 4 tbsp
- Cheese 100g
- Black Pepper
- Red Chilli Powder
- Chilli Sauce
Take 3 tbsp oil and fry 1 tbsp crushed garlic in that, when it starts changing color and gets aromatic, add chopped tomatoes and cook till tomatoes are soft, then add ground beef, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper and 1 tsp red chilli powder, chopped onion and fry really well.
Add one cup water and let it cook on low flame till water dries up.
Meanwhile boil macaroni according to the instructions on the pack. Mostly elbow macaroni takes 10-12 minutes to get done in salted boiling water. When it is soft, put it in a colander and rinse well with cold tap water and oil it with your fingers and put aside.
Prepare your vegetables and fry sausages.
Now take a big pan and take 3 tbsp oil in that and fry 1 tsp garlic in that.
When garlic is aromatic, add 2 tbsp Soy Sauce, 1 tbsp Chilli sauce, 1/2 tsp black pepper powder, 1/2 tsp salt and mix well.
Add vegetables in that mixture and cook on high heat so vegetables stay crunchy. If you like soft vegetables then cover and cook on low heat for 7-8 minutes.
After that turn the heat high and add boiled macaroni in it.
Then add cooked ground beef.
After that add sausages and keep on stirring it.
Taste and adjust the seasoning.
Now when you hear the crackling sound of macaroni, mix tomato ketchup in that and turn off the stove.
Put this in a baking dish and cover it with grated cheese. (This step is optional, you can serve macaroni even without cheese)
Put the dish in oven under grill and cook till cheese turns brown.
