My Moms Spaghetti Bolognaise Recipe

What you’ll need

500g of Pasta
2 Pounds of mince lamb
Olive Oil
A small Onion
Garlic
Tined Tomato (blend it before starting)
Red Chili Powder
Garam Masala & Coriander Mix
1 Jar of Ragu Sauce (or equivalent)

The Pasta

1. Add 2 tablespoons to a saucepan of water and then add the pasta. This will prevent the pasta from sticking together.
2. Heat until the pasta becomes soft and easily broken. Don’t check this with your bare hands its still going to be piping hot. Use a spoon or a fork to check the pasta is soft.
3. Rinse thoroughly while being careful not to get hit by the steam from the boiling water. Add another tablespoon of olive oil and if you like a ¼ tablespoon of black pepper.
4. Its now ready for the sauce!

The Sauce
1. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a saucepan (alternatively you may also use vegetable oil or Ghee) and then finely chop a small onion and add to the saucepan.
2. Chop 2 cloves of garlic and add to the pan. Try to keep the heat steady and keep stirring till the onions are light brown.
3. Add the pre-blended tined tomato along with half a tablespoon of salt. Stir thoroughly for 5 minutes.
4. Add ½ a teaspoon of red chili powder. Continue stirring.
5. Add 1 teaspoon of garam masala along with ½ a teaspoon of coriander. Stir well till boiling hot.
6. Add the mince lamb along with an entire Jar of Ragu Sauce to the contents. Then refill the Ragu jar with water and add to the pan. Stir well and leave to cook for 15 minutes till nice and thick (although NOT too thick).

Leave to cool for a few minutes and then serve with the pasta. You may also add a little grated Reggiano cheese along with some chopped basil. There should be plenty for the entire family.

bon appetite

Sounds good. Intresting. :doubt: never heard of anyone put garam masala in bolognaise sauce. I like spag bol any way, so i'm gonna give it a try.

Facty of life: Garam Masala goes in everything darling.

Gentleness and kindness were never a part of anything except that it made it beautiful, and harshness was never a part of anything except that it made it ugly.

Through cheating, stealing, and lying, one may get required results but finally one becomes

Lol, I made this last night. And it turned out great.
The funny thing was my mom had the coriander and garam masala mixed together in a jar. I suspect she uses that combo in other dishes too.

This sounds quite tasty. I think i'll try it out.

But i have a question. Why would you use tinned tomatoes if you are using Ragu sauce as well?

May Allah shine sweet faith upon you this day and times beyond. May your heart be enriched with peace, and may your home be blessed always. Ameen.

GOOD QUESTION? WHY USE RAGU SAUCE IF YOU USE TINNED TOMATOES.PROBABLY TO ADD MORE FLAVOUR. WHO KNOWS?

Thats a good question. Honestly i dont know.

Tomatoes seem to be essential to the recipe. But if i had to guess, wat does Ragu sauce have inside other than Tomatoes? Chopped onions, celery, carrots, seasoning... but theres not enough of it for the actual size of the serving. So you need to add more... hence the tinned tomatoes, the fried onions at the beginning and the seasoning.

Whatever the reason, it seems to work.

Don't just do something! Stand there.

Because he's American

Chin up, mate! Life's too short.

So does that mean Seraphim lives in America or hear in the uk.

Well, he lives on Dark Cloud 7, actually. He comes down occasionally. Sadly, his last house, Red Cloud 10 was blown up by the Big Bang experiment.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane, by those who couldn't hear the music...

I made this the other day.

Tis nice. Blum 3

Although u shud probably add that they shud chop the garlic a lil more finely.

When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it is not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.
