What’s your definition of celebration? Do you wait for some occasion to celebrate or you like partying anytime? But hey, don’t you think that no celebration is complete without some fizz? That’s our definition of celebration- some friends, a comic movie, shots on dartboard, something spicy to nibble and ofcourse a bottle of fizz.
On weekend we had friends over at our place and it was more like a potluck party; and as always I was responsible to make starter and drinks. Oh well, I had to keep in mind the kids and one pregnant friend of ours before I decide about the drinks. Plain old lemonade or ice tea was sounding boring and dull; suddenly something perfect happened- the postman delivered a bottle of Shloer Pink Fizz from their celebration range. The elegant looking glass bottle with the touch of silver warp and party style popping cork- I knew it was going to be the star of the day.
My pregnant friend was so excited and thrilled to have a drink that tasted like champagne but was not alcoholic or contained any artificial flavours. Pink Fizz is bubbly, fruity and sparkling drink that can be paired with any spicy snack, but you won’t regret sipping it all alone too. And by the way, if you are planning to throw a baby shower party or need to celebrate without alcohol please look at their wide collection of drinks here http://www.shloer.com/-. It won’t disappoint you.
For starter it had to be spicy and summery- so I concluded to prepare Spring Onion And Cheese Cakes. Some handful of spices, sharp flavours of spring onion and oozy cheese, all when combined is very delightful in taste and lovely to look at. What more, have it with a dollop of green chutney or sprinkle of lime juice and a fizzy drink-ah such a perfect way to enjoy summers.
Here is the recipe
2 large potatoes boiled
1/2 cup of spring onions chopped
1 green chilli chopped
2 tablespoon coriander leaves chopped
1/4 cup of mozzarella or Halloumi cheese grated
1 teaspoon of black pepper powder
1 tablespoon corn flour
1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
Salt to taste
2 tablespoons butter for roasting
Mix everything together (except butter) in a bowl. With the help of a fork keep mashing the potatoes.
When everything is combined, divide the dough in 10 equal balls and flatten into disc shapes.
Heat a non stick pan on low flame and spread one tablespoon of butter. Put the cakes on the pan and let it roast on one side till golden brown in colour. Turn the cakes, spread the butter and cook again the other side till golden.
For better results, deep fry the cakes. I prefer this healthier way.
If roasting, make sure that flame is on low heat. On high heat you will get the golden colour but spring onion, cheese and corn flour will be raw.
Shape the balls and keep in the fridge, start roasting 10 minutes before serving.
You can also form cylindrical, oval or heart shaped cakes.
Serve with yogurt, chutney or ketchup.
You can also use these cakes in tortilla wraps or pita pockets with some salad and dressing
