Ingredients

Number of serving: 1
Penne Pasta - 1 1/2 cups.

Frozen sweet corn -3/4 cup

Oil - 1 teaspoon


Dressing:

Plain Mayonnaise -1 cup

Fresh Hung Curd - 1/2 cup

Powdered Sugar - 1 pinch

Salt to taste

Preparation

  • Bring plenty of water to a boil in a wide large pot. Add 1 teaspoon salt and the pasta. Stir occasionally but gently.
  • Boil till pasta is al dente(to the tooth). It should be tender but still firm to the bite. Remove the pot from fire immediately and pour the pasta into a colander, draining all the water.
  • Add a teaspoon of oil to prevent the pasta from sticking. Toss gently Allow to cool. Store in the fridge in a covered container till serving time.
  • Boil some water and add 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Add the frozen sweet corn and blanch for about 3-4 minutes or until tender. Drain and refrigerate.
  • Put the fresh hung curd in a wide shallow bowl (big enough to comfortably toss the pasta in) Add the mayonnaise and sugar. Add salt to taste. Mix well with a wire whisk till smooth and creamy. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.
  • Just before serving, add the pasta and the boiled corn to the mayonnaise mixture. Mix gently till mayonnaise coats the pasta well taking care not to break the pasta.
  • If the salad feels dry, add one or two teaspoons cold milk as needed. Serve the chilled pasta salad immediately with warm Garlic Bread.
