You have bought the best cutlery, the best utensils, the best ingredients and the very best Agastya Pasta, yet you are just not able to recreate the scrumptious taste of the restaurant.
Do you wonder what’s the magic that chefs do in their kitchens to elevate their dishes, while you can’t get it right even after following their recipe step by step?
It’s simple really. They have mastered basic techniques. Yes! There’s no special ingredient that the chefs use to make their pasta dishes stand out. They simply use techniques that they have studied and mastered over time. But, not to worry, we are giving you a free pasta-cooking lesson by taking you through the same techniques that a professional chef uses at a restaurant.
Much excited? We are too… note down the following!
Bring Out All The Tools For Work –
The first thing to make the best tasting pasta is to get organised with the right tools. Get your kitchen a new set of – rubber spatula, long chopsticks and a large metal spoon. These new editions will make your cooking efficient and level up the food with excellent taste. Your first step towards a brilliant pasta!
Don’t Wait For Pasta To Hit Al Dente
All recipe books strictly state to cook pasta till al dente (Cooked till it is firm to bite). The ultimate goal is cooking chewy pasta that is filled with flavours. Although, this chewiness drains out by the time the dish gets to the dining table.
For the best results, boil Agastya Pasta with sauce in a hot pan for a minute. Then once your pasta gets a bit firm, that plate is ready to be served.
Sauce And Pasta, Tastes The Best When Cooked In One Pan
Can you guess, which is the best method to mix your sauce with noodles? It’s by using a pan. Not a pot or any bowl, but a pan. Heating the pasta and sauce together helps the pasta to absorb the flavours of the sauce. Don’t microwave the two together, but heat it directly to establish its wholesome flavours of Agastya Pasta!
Do Not Throw Away The Pasta Water And Pay Attention To The Saltiness
Agastya Pasta releases starch when boiled in water. Use this water to cook your sauce. It will create one unified meal that compliments each other’s taste. Also, salt in water plays an important role in the consistency of the sauce. So, be easy on the salt and extra on the flavour!
Garnish Your Pasta Before Eating
Sprinkling chopped parsley, basil or thyme over pasta are not just for show. Garnishing is the last touch of pasta that can make or break the dish.
Squeezing lemon juice on creamy pasta or adding toasted breadcrumbs for textural crunch are two of the many ways you can score a great dish!
Add visual and aromatic aesthetics to the dish by sprinkling your favourite garnish because with your palate, the pasta deserves it as well!
