Ema Datshi Recipe

This afternoon I received and collected gifts from Luzee which was brought by Sonam, her colleague in Bhutan, who came here for the official visit.

Happiness is when I received red rice, chili, and cheese from Bhutan :)

She gifted me 2 kg of red rice, one pack of Datshi (Bhutan handmade cheese), and one box of Ema (giant green chilies).

I was very exciting receiving all these items. I called my hubby immediately and told him that I would cook Ema Datshi (Bhutan most famous - national - dish) to be eaten together with the red rice this evening.

At the same time I asked my Bhutanese Charo (friend) for the recipe. Hehe... Thank you Flora for your recipe. I followed it accordingly :)

- 10 pcs of Ema (chilli), cut half or in quarter. Remove seed is optional (to be less spicy)
- 1 pc of small size white onion (chop thinly)
- 1-2 cloves of garlic (chop small)
- 1 pc of tomato (chop thinly) - optional
- 1 pc of Datshi or 2 pcs of cheese slices
- 3 Tbs of vegetable oil
- Salt

Ema Datshi ingredients :)

2. Add chilli
3. Add cheese (mash it and spread on top of the chilli)
4. Add salt
5. Cover the lid and boil 2-3 minutes
6. Stir the chilli and cheese well, cook for a little while more with small heat
