Couple of days back I was talking with my mom and she was telling me about these ready made masala packets we get here in US. The minute she told me the recipe i thought i must try it out before Ramdan comes.
I was talking to my cousin about Fish and she suggested me this recipe when I heard this recipe I wanted to do it.
Kayalpattinam is famous for many things one among them is their traditional food. Kanji is made during the month of Ramadan,as Ramadan is fast approaching i tried my hands on this dish.

Onions - 1 finely chopped
Celery - 1 cup finely chopped

Italian parsley for garnish
Chicken breast-cut into small cubes
In a big pan add some oil and heat it well. When hot enough add the garlic and saute for few minutes. Now add the onions and saute well till the onions are transparent.
Now add the stock / water and bring to a boil. Add all the chopped vegetables and mix well. Add the spices(Oregano), salt ( be careful while adding salt if ur using vegetable stock, as the stock may contain some salt in it as preservatives) and let it boil for like 10 minutes, until the veggies cook. Now add the garbanzo beans and chicken pieces and cook covered on medium flame for 25 minutes.Now after 25 minutes stir the soup well. If you think the soup looks too thick or too chunky add some water to it. Let it boil a bit and then add in the pasta. Stir well and cook it covered for another 12 mins. By now u can smell the minestrone soup. Once the pasta is cooked your soup is ready for serving...:)
If your are Vegetarian don't add chicken stock & chicken breast
