  1. Combining Italian seasoning with pav bhaji or similar masala is very interesting. Make ahead sauces are the perfect answer when looking for options for weekday lunches.

  2. Priya Suresh Says:
  3. Am yet to experiment pasta with sweet potato, how catchy and colourful this pasta looks. Kids will finish their lunch box in no time definitely.

  4. That is a really innovative sauce. Very creamy and so yum with pasta. I love the addition of kitchen king masala.

  5. Srivalli Says:
  6. Harini, this is an excellent one to make. Is the sweet potato you get in India suitable for this version?

  7. Suma Gandlur Says:
  8. The sauce sounds like a wonderful base for pasta. I will try this for my daughter and see how this goes with the picky one.
