Quickest veg stir-fry with Za’atar
I tried Za’atar in Kuwait and I fell in love with that stuff. It’s a mix spice with a lot of stuff in it; mint, sesame seeds, oregano, sumaah, thyme, marjoram and a lot of other stuff I can’t figure out. Lucky for me I don’t need to.
I’ve bought enough Za’atar to last for a really long time (smart thinking) But if you can’t get your hands on some of this stuff, then you can try making your own. That link seems to have covered it.
There’s really not much to talk about this recipe. Make it and you shall know.
What you need:
1 red onion
1 ts of ginger + garlic paste and more garlic if you will
about 250 Mix vegetables, or whatever you want to stir fry
40gm cottage cheese/paneer/tofu
salt as per your taste-buds (or dietary requirements)
1 tbs (good quality) oyster sauce
20gm of grated processed cheese (optnl)
1 tsp oil
What to do:
1. Saute veggies in oil, starting with onions, ginger garlic paste and the harder veggies progressing to the softer ones. Throw in the paneer/tofu/cottage cheese
2. Add salt, oyster sauce and Za’atar. Cover and cook on a low flame for about 7 minutes or so.
3. Cover with processed cheese. Dig in.
I used mix veggies from a pack. So easy.
Frozen cubed paneer? Awesome, no chopping required.
My new comfort food? Definitely.
A bowl of this stuff would make me really comfortable right now.
