Serve Armenian-style pasta at the table immediately after cooking, so to speak, hot.
- Pasta of any shape and variety – 150 g.
- Salt – to taste.
- Ground black pepper – to taste.
- Vegetable oil (it is better to use oil without a pronounced odor) – 50 ml.
- Butter (high quality) – 50 g.
- Water – approximately 1 tbsp. (you may need a little more or less water, depending on the diameter of the pan).
How to cook:
1. Pour vegetable oil into the pan and put the butter. You can use olive oil instead of vegetable oil.
2. Put it on low heat and melt everything.
3. Now lay out the pasta.
4. Place the skillet over moderate heat and fry the pasta until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
5. Pour in water at room temperature. The water should completely cover the pasta, so add more if needed.
6. Add salt and ground black pepper. At this stage, you can add your other favorite spices.
7. Cover the pan with a lid and simmer the dish for 5-7 minutes. Stir pasta occasionally. Then turn off the heat and let them stand for another 5 minutes.
