It’s actually a simple process to boil and prepare pasta/spaghetti. Follow the instructions mentioned on the packet. Add few drops of oil and some salt while boiling pasta as oil helps to keep the strands separate while draining and salt removes the blandness.

Please Note:

  • I have used 1 packet spaghetti = 500gms and so you may adjust the quantity of other ingredients accordingly
