Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add pasta and onion; cook, stirring constantly, until pasta is lightly browned and onions are translucent.
Dissolve chicken stock granules into hot water. Pour into the pot with pasta, then stir in tomatoes and chillies, coriander, cumin, garlic salt and pepper. Cover and set heat to low. Simmer the pasta for 20 minutes until the water is almost gone (it will remain a little soupy).
