People are making chips with pasta so I thought why not make pasta with papad. After all, cooking has no boundaries. I dared myself and made this for lunch. What was bound to fail ended up being very very tasty.”
To make Chef Goila’s papad Aglio e Olio you will need the following ingredients:
1) A packet of papad
2) Olive Oil or any neutral oil
3) Plenty of chopped garlic
6) Chilli Flakes
8) Basil Leaves
1. Begin by cutting the uncooked papad into thin strips, similar to pad thai noodles or pappardelle pasta.
2. Boil some water and add some oil to it and boil the uncooked papad in the boiling water for 2 minutes.
3. Strain the papad and put it in a bowl of ice-cold water.
4. In a pan, heat some olive oil and add your chopped garlic. Sautee for a minute and add chilli flakes along with salt and pepper.
5. Add your papad pasta to the pan and mix until it is coated in garlic and chilli oil. Top with cheese and basil. Serve hot and enjoy.
