  1. Fine chop the onions & garlic.
  2. Put the pasta to boil with enough water in a rice cooker/thick bottomed vessel.
  3. Once boiled run cold water through the pasta in a strainer. (This helps pieces to be separated)

  5. Add fine chopped garlic & fry till golden brown.
  6. Add oregano & onions & sauté for 2 to 3 minutes, leaving the onion crunchy.
