Indian Style Pink Sauce Pasta#Improv

This is a street style pasta which is saucy/gravy type of pasta and can be spiced according to our taste. This is delicious and uses blended tomatoes. Use grated cheese generously- no cutting/kanjusi in adding cheese. A must try this recipe which is quick and easy.

1 Cup Measurement = 250Ml 
Serves: 2 - as a meal
For Boiling Pasta

2 Cups Penne Pasta 
1½ Tablespoons Salt
2 Tablespoons Oil
6 - 8 Cups Water
For Pink Sauce
2 Tablespoons Oil +1 Tablespoon Butter
4 Cloves Garlic - finely chopped
2 Medium Onions, finely chopped
1 Teaspoon Heaped Red Chilly powder or to your spicy level
5 Medium Red Ripe Tomatoes - pureed
Salt to taste
4 Tablespoons Heaped Tomato Ketchup
½ Cup Sweet Corn - boiled
1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
1 Teaspoon Level Red Chilly Flakes
2 Tablespoons Butter
¼ Cup Fresh Cream or Malai
Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves
Lots Of Grated Processed Cheese

In a heavy bottom pan, heat water, add salt and oil, bring to a boil, add pasta  and cook for about 80% done. Strain the pasta in a bowl, add some more oil to avoid from sticking. Reserve one cup pasta water, keep aside for further use.
Heat oil and butter another large pan/kadai, add garlic and cook till it releases an aroma. Add onions and cook till translucent. Add tomato puree , mix well, Cover and cook for 10 minutes or till oil surfaces . Add red chilly powder, ketchup, sweet corn, oregano and chilly flakes, mix well. Add pasta and mix well, cover and let it cook till just done/al dente ( it should not be mushy). 
Add butter, 2 tablespoon heaped cheese and fresh cream, mix well, taste for salt then add ( I did not add salt, since butter and cheese already has salt) switch off the flame. 
Garnish with coriander leaves and lot's of processed cheese.

My Notes
Boil the paste only 80%; rest will cook in a sauce
Don’t overcook the pasta in the sauce.
After adding cream, immediately remove from the flame or else it will curdle.
