The main difference between Italian and Indo Italian dishes is that the dishes which require stuffing, Indian vegetables and masalas replace the authentic Italian ones. Authentic Italian foods use the typical Italian herbs to flavour but very little chillies. And since we Indians like our food to be spicier, plenty of chilli flakes do the needful. So here is the recipe:
- Cottage cheese (paneer) crumbled 1 cup
- Baguette cut into 1 inch thick slices 1
- Tamarind chutney for topping
- Cherry tomatoes halved 1 cup
- Onions chopped 2 medium
- Olive oil 1 teaspoon
- Fresh coriander leaves chopped 1 tablespoon
- Salt to taste
- Heat a non-stick pan and toast the baguette slices. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Combine cherry tomatoes, onions, cottage cheese, olive oil, coriander leaves and salt in a bowl and refrigerate for twenty minutes.
- Top each toasted slice with generous amount of the tomato mixture. Top with tamarind chutney and serve immediately.
