How to make Spaghetti Vegetable Oat Balls In Tomato Basil Sauce

    • To begin, first, cook the pasta along with salt in boiling hot water until al dente. Once it is cooked, rinse the pasta under cold water, toss it in a little oil and keep aside.
    • The next step is to cook the tomato basil sauce.  Puree the blanched tomatoes and keep aside.
    • Heat a teaspoon of oil in a large saucepan; add the garlic, the tomatoes and basil. Simmer the sauce in low to medium heat until the sauce thickens and you get great flavors coming through. Add the salt & red chili powder, check the taste and keep aside.
    • The final step is to make the vegetable balls.  Combine all the ingredients except the oil in a large mixing bowl. Check the taste and adjust the flavors and salt accordingly.
    • Once done, shape the ball mixture into small lemon sized balls and keep aside.
    • Bake at 150 degrees for 20 mins or until cooked
    • In a wok/ kadai, toss half the tomato sauce onto the veg balls. Once it gets heated up and well coated, turn off the heat and keep aside.
    • In the same wok, toss the spaghetti in the other half of the tomato sauce until well coated. Check the salt and seasoning and keep aside.
    • To plate the pasta, in a bowl, spoon the spaghetti, place the veg balls in tomato basil sauce and serve.
