Mint & Babycorn Pasta Pulao

Our's today lunch was this Indianized version of pasta dish..I prepared them very much similar like our pulao but instead of rice i used the whole wheat macaroni pastas..When my H called me from his office to know how am doing coz of my allergic problem, he asked me wat i prepared for lunch? thinking that he will order something for me as home delivery, i told that i prepared some pulao with pasta, he started laughing and was almost surprised when i told him how i prepared this pasta pulao..Immediately he started worrying that am spending more time in cooking than taking rest.. Wat can i do, am not a person who sit in idle and i want always to keep me busy and finally my H asked me keep him a plate of this pulao for his dinner,fingers crossed hope he will love this pasta pulao..But we guys enjoyed this pasta pulao for ou lunch when i served them with some baked potato patties crusted with quinoa..Both together turned out lunch super healthy and filling..
