Recipe: Datsi Marngo (Cheese Fried in Butter)
Datse Marngo (Cheese fried in butter)
* 3 balls of cheese
* 130 g of butter
* 2 eggs
* a piece of garlic
* A piece of ginger
* 1/2 tsp chilli powder
* Spring onions
Cook crushed cheese with two cups of water and butter for 5 minutes, with the lid closed. Next, add eggs, garlic, ginger and salt. Blend well so that cheese and eggs become almost indistinguishable. Garnish with spring onions.
Datse Marngo is also a supplement dish offered to a VIP. It goes very well with rice. The name literally means fried cheese in butter but it is good to add a little water in the beginning so that the cheese gets cooked.
