Method

Step 1


Heat 2 tbsps oil in a non stick wok and 2 tbsps oil in a non stick pan. Add cumin seeds to the wok and when they begin to change colour, add garlic and saute for ½ minute. Add onion and saute.

Step 2


Add crumbled cottage cheese to the pan and saute. Add tomato basil pasta sauce and mix well. Add spinach puree to the wok and mix. Preheat an oven to 180°C. Heat all the rice in the microwave.

Step 3


Add salt and garam masala powder to the spinach mixture and mix well. Add salt and dried fenugreek leaves to the cottage cheese mixture and mix well.

Step 4


Add half the rice to the spinach mixture and half to the cottage cheese mixture and mix well.

Step 5


Adjust salt in both the wok and the pan and cook for a minute. Grease a round steel mould over an oven proof plate. Put some of the spinach rice and press well.

Step 6


Over this put a layer of cottage cheese rice and press. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. You can serve it without baking too.

Step 7


Top with a little crackling spinach and serve hot.

Chef Tip


To make crackling spinach deep fry spinach strips till crisp. Drain on absorbent paper. Heat sesame oil in a non stick pan, add red chilli flakes and immediately add the fried spinach. Sprinkle salt, sugar and toasted sesame seeds and toss.
