With rice already cooked, this is a real time-saver for a quick one-pot meal. I actually took time to cook the tomatoes in the pot with the vegetables and had the complete dish ready to serve in 20 minutes.
A nice brunch dish. I found it simple to combine making the white sauce with the onion and cheese, so it was one preparation, not two. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a saucepan. Add onions and sauté. Stir in 2 Tbsp. flour, then add 2 cups milk. As it thickens, add the shredded cheese.
I am still discovering my own neighbourhood. A few weeks ago I found a lovely Indian grocery store within walking distance. And I found not only an ingredient which was new to me, chaat masala, but lots of other fascinating new things to try.
On my first try, I don’t think I mastered the instructions to let the potato shells crisp without letting them turn colour, nor do I have a proper grill, so under the broiler has to do. Nevertheless, although I found the recipe a bit fussy to put together, it is certainly a treat to the taste buds. And practice, no doubt, will make it seem easier.
