|2 People||20-25 Minutes||5-10 Minutes|
- 100 g cottage cheese
- 2 tsps milk
- 4 bread toasts
- 1 tbsp cream, full-fat
- Salt, as per taste
- Veggies, for decoration
For preparing cottage cheese, squeeze one medium sized lemon in 500 ml warm milk. Keep stirring slowly for 5 minutes. Cover the vessel with a cloth and let it sit for an hour.
After the curd seperates from the whey, pour this into a colander lined with thin muslin cloth. Let the whey drain for about 5 mins.
Next, gather the ends of the cloth and rinse the semi-solid mass under running water. Do this for around 3-4 minutes so that the sour taste of lemon goes away.
Now add 1 tbsp of cream, 2 tsps of milk, a pinch of salt, and mix thoroughly. Make it point to not make it very runny. It should be solid enough to stay on the toast. You can other spices at this time. Italian spices like oregano and thyme would make things more interesting.
Now, take a spoonful of cottage cheese and spread it on the toast. If you find circular shapes in toasts, you can use the veggies to prepare the face of a fat cat as shown in the image.
Otherwise use your imagination and conjure up these fantastic open-sandwiches.
