After the last weeks "Kalakand"...all that was left over was few crumbs of the kalakand and half a tub of the Ricotta cheese. The kalakand was long gone....but half of that Ricotta tub was still sitting in the refrigerator. After all the "sweet" overindulgence in Diwali..I hardly could dare to make anything sweet with the Ricotta. So I put my thinking cap on.....and came up with this Spicy Ricotta Bhurji Recipe....and it was worth it!! We had a perfect tasty colorful 'subzi' to go along with rotis for that days dinner.
14 Oz Ricotta cheese
1/2 onion chopped
1/4 cup chopped Red Pepper
1/4 cup chopped Green pepper
1/4 cup green peas
1tsp Kitchen King masala/ Shahi Paneer masala
1/2tsp Red chili powder
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1) In a microwave safe bowl....add the Ricotta. Cook 2 mins. Stir. Cover with loose lid and cook for 3 mins. Stir again. Cook again for 3 mins loosely covered. Drain the excess water. Let the cooked Ricotta cool.
2) Heat oil, add cumin and veggies. Saute till slightly tender.Add the Shahi paneer masala, chili powder,salt and ricotta cheese.Mix.
3) Serve hot along with Rotis/Naan/Chapati
