Cheese and Chillies: Cottage Cheese and Green Chillies Dish

Loved these long thin green chillies found in the Indian Stores. They are usually not 'hot' but some of them have a bite towards the stem end! These go really well with Cottage Cheese in a  dry subzi/curry. One can either use it as an appetizer, increasing the size of the Cottage Cheese/Paneer chunks
 or have it with phulka's or puri's.
I used a spiced-up batch of home-made cottage cheese with red chilli flakes for this dish.
I cup of Cottage Cheese Cubes
3-Non-Spicy Green Chillies cut in slants! :-)
1/4 cup finely chopped red onions
1/4tsp Cumin Seeds
1/4 tsp Aniseed
1/4 tsp Red chilli powder or according to your taste
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
Vegetable Oil
A dash of Lime
Finely chopped corainder powder for garnish.
Heat a tbsp of oil and temper cumin seeds and aniseed. Add the finely chopped onions and saute  until soft. Add the cheese cubes and turn to medium heat. Sprinkle the turmeric  and  red chilli powders and saute until golden  brown. Heat Oil  in a separate pan and fry the green chillies until they turn glossy and still retain the green color. Add to the Cottage Cheese and toss well for a couple of minutes. Serve with a garnish of finely chopped corainder and a dash of lime.
