One quick and easy datshi dish we ONLY make with our aunt cheese, is fried datshi. Its a go-to-dish in our household when a meat-eater unexpectedly shows up for a dinner that is mostly vegetarian.
Recently Sonny and my cousin Bones who is currently living with us, let me photograph the process of making some emergency fried datshi.
The first step is crush the ball of datshi. You can either use a ladle to do the crushing like my cousin Bones or just use your hand like Sonny on the right.
The next step is optional, which is to finely chop some green chili. Bones removed the seeds to bring the heat down a little bit
The you want to melt butter in a deep frying pan to which you first add some beaten eggs. Then you add the broken up cheese.....
... and shortly after that the chopped green chili which gives the mixture a nice pop of green.
The mixture has to be stirred more or less continuously until it becomes a large sticky mass. To serve you cut pieces off of it much as you would if you were sharing an omelet.
