Macaroni and Curried Tomato Sauce

Macaroni pasta and curried tomato sauce, a kid’s delight. A healthy option for kids, if you are struggling to feed your kids healthy then macaroni and curried tomato sauce is one of the best options.

Macaroni pasta is tossed with rich and flavorful tomato sauce cooked Indian style. My wife  was being very careful to not make it spicy while making the tomato sauce as she was cooking for our 5 year old son. She has used  more garlic than ginger in this recipe as my son loves garlic. You can use a modified version of this recipe according to your kid’s liking.
