I been trying OPOS for couple of years by now.The cooking method,recipes and ingredients has been drastically changed.I dont think people eat the same now as in past 2 decades.The rice is being replaced by millets,white sugar by brown sugar and maida with whole wheat flour.The method has become more easy these days.In beginning of 2000 to 2015 ,I have spent most of sauting and stiring in the kitchen.Adding ingredients one by one to saute and spending lot of time in kitchen which became unnecessary now.A couple of years ago i couldnt stand for long time.I tried OPOS method for basic cooking like sambar,beans poriyal and kootu.Most of the recipes were blissful without much sauting.All you need to do chop the vegetables and layer the ingredients in the cooker.Sometimes,in one whistle one wholesome meal will be ready in forty minutes.This pasta recipe is my recent try which turned out like magic dish. If this dish didnt work ,dont blame the recipe.Blame the science and keep altering the ingredients and its measurement.Keep trying OPOS with other recipes.
Mushroom/any veggies,chopped-1/2 cup
Italian seasoning-1/4 tsp
Chilly flakes-1/4 tsp
Capsicum,thinly sliced-1/4 cup
Salt to taste
1.Soak the pasta in water as fully immersed for 30 minutes.
2.Take a 2 litre pressure cooker ,layer/pour oil/butter,chopped onion,mushroom,
seasoning and the milk
3.Close the lid and on the flame.
4.Allow it to cook for 2 whistles and then off the flame.
5.Once the steam settles ,when the cooker is still hot ,add the salt and red chillies. Stir .Add the capsicum and cheese on top.Close the lid and let it sit for 5 minutes.
Add the chilly flakes and salt only at the end as it may curdle the milk.Adjust the liquid according to the thickness of the pasta.Macaroni works best with this recipe.Rest of the pasta,use extra liquid as needed.
