Recipe of Mossaka

                             
Delhi is experiencing a  prolonged winter. Holi has come and gone, but the weather is very fickle.One day we remove the woollens and next day again we have  to take them out.Rains also are refusing to quit. My children  and   grand children are at home most of the  time. They love to have  something new to eat every day. Naturally, J keep hunting for new recipes to give them a surprise. Last evening some friends came home for Dinner.I had fiddled with a new recipe, some days back. The children wanted to have it. I cannot refuse anything to my grand  children, so I   decided to prepare it. I am sharing the recipe with friends.I am sure you will like it.'
   So here goes the recipe, but  1st is the photograph  followed by the recipe.



Mossaka


Mossaka is a Greek recipe.  Actually it is a non vegetarian preparation. I have modified it into a vegetarian dish. In the original dish mutton keema is used. I have substituted 'nutri nuggets' in place of mutton. It is very popular in our house, so we prepare it quite often. I prepared it  yesterday for dinner when  some guests came  home. It was appreciated very much by all. 

Ingredients
1. Nutrinugget granules       1cup.
2.Green peas            i cup
3 Potatos  boiled and mashed  1 cup
4. Butter                   4 table spoons
5.Salt                         to taste
6.Cheese spread        2 table spoons.;
7. Pepper powder     1 tea spoon
8. Pre heated for 10 minutes at 150'0c

Method of cooking

1. Boil the nutrinuggets for about five minutes.
2 Boil the peas till they are half cooked.
3.Mix the NN(nutri nuggets)  and the peas and add salt to taste.
4.In  the  mashed potatoes add cheese, butter, salt and pepper powder. 
5. Take an oven proof bowl.(I use  Borosil glass bowl). Divide the NN,Peas  mixture in two halves.
6. Divide the potato mixture  also in two halves.
7.Now make layers of NN and potato alternately in the  bowl, starting with NN mixture and ending with potato mixture.
8. Adjust the temperature of the oven at 160'oc for twenty minutes. 
9,Remove  the dish from the  oven when the potato layer  becomes brown.
10. Serve hot.

NOTE  You can use chicken  or mutton keema instead of potatoes.
Children love this preparation.
It canbe taken with bread or  chapati.
