Delish Cottage Cheese Sizzler

I can have sizzlers every week and still never get tired of them. Who can say no to the delectable combination of rice, noodles, vegetables, chicken and fries! Drizzle some spicy sauce and I for one am in my happy place 😊 But one can’t really eat out that much, even if it’s a sizzler so I began making sizzlers at home. There are a lot of advantages of a homemade sizzler. For one thing, its much healthier than the restaurant one, you can make as much quantity as you want (and eat!) and its definitely lighter on the pocket. But yeah, making sizzlers is a lot of work. Its not really difficult but that there are many elements. But when you lay eyes on your own steaming, sizzling, yummlicious sizzler you will find its worth it! So on to the recipe.

Ingredients:

1 carrot cut into long, thin stripes

1 capsicum cut into stripes

1 capsicum cut into cubes

1 onion cut into cubes

1 small cabbage, shredded (leave a few cabbage leaves full and intact, to layer your sizzler with)

3 potatoes, cut long and thin

2 cups cooked rice

1 cup cooked noodles; you can also use a packet of instant noodles

1 teaspoon black pepper

2 teaspoon ginger garlic paste

2 tablespoon cheese spread or grated cheese for garnishing

1 tablespoon butter

For the sauce:

1 teaspoon barbeque sauce

1 teaspoon tomato puree

1 tablespoon tomato ketchup

1 teaspoon schezwan sauce

Your choice of protein, boiled chicken or cottage cheese, I have used cottage cheese for my sizzler

For the rice bombs:

1 teaspoon chili sauce

1 teaspoon soya sauce

1 teaspoon tomato ketchup

2-3 slices of bread

3 tablespoons cooked rice

Handful of chopped coriander

Method:

Drizzle a pan lightly with oil, add your grated veggies along with a little black pepper and salt. Cook until just done. Season your cut potatoes with salt and black pepper and deep fry till nice and golden. Set aside. Drizzle a pan with some olive oil, add the ginger garlic paste and your rice. Cook for 5-7 minutes. Switch off the flame. In a pan heat oil. Once the oil is hot drop in your onion and capsicum cubes. Fry for a couple of minutes and then add all the ingredients of the sauce except for the protein. Add a little water to cook the capsicum. Add your chicken or cottage cheese after a few minutes. Check seasoning and adjust accordingly. If using instant noodles, cook as per packet instructions. I have used instant for my sizzler or you can simply used boiled noodles seasoned with a little salt. We are almost at the end now! For the rice bombs, in a bowl mix together all the ingredients and shape into cutlets. Drizzle a pan with some oil and shallow fry your cutlets till a nice golden brown. Now for assembling the sizzler. Heat up your sizzler plate till its very very hot! Wash your cabbage leaves in water. Add butter to the sizzler plate. Use a spoon to spread it evenly across the sizzler plate. Immediately lay down the wet lettuce leaves. Now your sizzler has started to sizzle. Assemble the rest of the elements just the way you like ‘em. Garnish with some cheese. Now sit down, take a deep breath and start eating!
