Cook the macaroni, as usual, until al dente. Drain the water, but reserve 1 cup for cooking later. Drizzle some oil over the macaroni and set aside.
In a kadhai or pan, heat oil on medium flame and add cumin seeds, garlic cloves and green chillies
Add the chopped onions and stir-fry until they begin to turn translucent.
Add chopped tomatoes and the remaining veggies of your choice. Mix well.
Lower the heat and add turmeric, chilli powder, garam masala, pepper and salt.
Saute the veggies and spices together. Taste and adjust seasoning as required. Add ketchup and/or chilli sauce accordingly.
Add the cooked macaroni to the spiced veggies and add a bit of the pasta water kept aside earlier. Stir well to combine the ingredients.
Cover the pan with a lid and allow to cook for a minute or two.
Garnish the pasta with lemon juice and chopped coriander. Serve hot.
