Let's not forget the message he reiterated
Stay Hungry,Stay Foolish !!
The week that's buzzed past was monotonous and to top it I was struck with - Don't feel like Blogging Block !!! There were some good dishes my hearth produced but the urge to blog about them was missing ! The weekend was no better and the lazy Sunday afternoon got even more lazier with a steady shower and all I wanted was a steaming cuppa with something to tuck in. Nope I didn't want to move a muscle , so it was Lazy calling Gallant - yup Hubby Dearest to the rescue ! When he agreed to dish out something simple but appetizing it was happy hoots...Succulent cubes of Cottage Cheese tossed in a tempered spice mix was just perrfect ! Spice Quotient was given by Milgai Podi (Red Chillis&Lentils Blend) and that added to the crunchy and flavourful taste of the dish. The dish was also a perfect accompaniment to the good 'ol Curd Rice !
- Cottage Cheese- 200 grams - washed & cubed
- Butter & Olive Oil Mix - 1 1/2 tbsp
- Mustard Seeds,Urad Dal - 1 tsp each
- Curry Leaves - a few
- Green Chilli - 1 - halved & sliced - optional
- Red Chillis & Lentils Powder - 1 1/4 tbsp - to taste
- Salt - to taste
- Asafoetida - a generous pinch
In a wok, add the mix of butter & olive oil and as it warms up let the mustard seeds & urad dal crackle. Drop in the curry leaves, green chilli and season it with salt & asafoetida.. Now tip in the Red Chillis & Lentils Powder and saute the mix for a few seconds. Finally dunk the cubed cottage cheese and toss it well. Let the spice blend coat every piece of the cottage cheese. The dish is ready. Serve Hot with your afternoon tea or enjoy it as a side-dish !
