Today I was in a mood to eat appetizer i.e., Cheese Poppy for lunch. I remember, when I was a kid we used to live in a neighborhood surrounded by a flock of close friends and relatives. They usually used to drop by unannounced on weekends, which was good in terms of catching up with them. Although, it wasn’t good for my mom because she had to be innovative when deciding what to serve them for snacks. And that’s how she came up with the recipe for Cheese Poppy.
But, before I share the recipe with you all, I want to give a shoutout to all the wonderful women all over the world. “Happy Women’s day” Let’s support each other, and make things happen.
And now here goes the recipe.
1 cup cottage cheese chunks (I get it from an Indian store)
2 tsp poppy seeds
1 tsp red chili powder
1/2 tsp Chaat Masala (It’s a tangy spice mix you get at an Indian store)
1 tsp lime juice
Salt to taste
2 tsp chopped cilantro/coriander
1-2 tsp olive oil
*Heat the pan on a medium flame and put some olive oil.
*Continuously stir in the poppy seeds, chili powder, chaat masala for a minute or two.
*Now add cottage cheese, cilantro, and some salt. Stir till all the spices amalgamate with cottage cheese.
*Add lime juice and give it a final stir.
*Serve hot with ketchup or as it is 🙂
