I found a delightful blog of a young mother cooking meals from each country and inviting others to do the same and share (not the food – ha – but the recipe and pictures) – GlobalTable – She started this in February and is now to the “B” countries, so perhaps I can catch up somehow, maybe do 2 or 3 countries a week. I plan to only do one recipe, not a whole menu like she does.
My recipe for the week from Bhutan: (here)
Kewa Datshi (Potatoes ‘n’ Cheese)
1/3 c. cheese (Swiss, Farmer, or any white cheese)
1/4 c. chopped red onions (I only have white today, so will substitute)
1 Tbsp. oil
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. chili
Cut potatoes into small pieces. Put in saucepan with oil and salt. Add 1-1/2 cups water and cook. When almost cooked, cut cheese into small pieces and add. Add chopped onions to taste and chili powder.
This is a simple dish. Most Bhutanese dishes have hot peppers but we can’t handle them so this recipe has none of those.
I really liked this and my daughter ate it too : )
