- 3 carrots grated
- bunch of spring onions chopped (both green and white part)
- 2-3 serrano chilies seeded and chopped

Note: Boil 1lb of macaroni (elbows are fine) per package instructions in salted water.
The Spices and Aromatics:
1 tsp of mustard seed (slightly crushed) *see note 1
1 tsp of red chili flakes (or to taste)
1/2 tsp of turmeric powder
1 Tbs of grated fresh ginger
1 Tbs of grated fresh garlic
2 tsp of curry powder * see note 2
Note 1: I put the seeds in a mortar and pestle and pounded it for a few seconds to break some of the seeds up.
1/2 cup of mayonnaise(regular or reduced fat is fine)
1/2 cup of yogurt (any fat level is fine)
