Sizzler - Chicken Strips with Corn Cheese Cutlet in Hot and Sweet Garlic Sauce

Ingredients: Red Capsicum 3-4 medium size
½ cup corn
1/4th cup green peas
100 grams chicken breast cut into thin strips
1 tbsp curd
1 tsp tandoori chicken powder
1 cup mixed vegetables of choice (carrots, beans, capsicum, cauliflower)
1 onion cut into julians
1 cup boiled potato
1 small cheese cube
Crushed bell pepper
Salt to taste
2 cups cooked rice.
French Fries from 1 big potato

Ingredients for Sauce : ½ cup hot and sweet tomato maggi sauce
½ cup tomato puree
5-6 crushed garlic
Salt to taste
2 tbsp Maple syrup
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
1 tsp oyster sauce

Method of preparation: Cut red capsicum from its head. De seed and clean from inside.
Heat water in a pan. Add pinch of salt .Once water starts boiling, add Capsicum pieces and boil for 3 – 4 minutes. Take it out of water and allow it to cool. Keep aside.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan. Add mixed vegetables , sprinkle salt and black pepper powder. Cover and cook till vegetables turn soft. Add cooked rice mix well and keep aside. Stuff the Capsicum with cooked rice. If rice is left over, you can put it in center of sizzler plate.

Boil corn in pressure cooker and slightly toss them with green peas in a pan with 1/4th tsp butter. Remember not to put extra butter as everything will be cooked again with butter on sizzler plate.

Marinate chicken with curd, tandoori chicken powder, little salt, blackpepper powder and tomato ketchup. Cook the marinates chicken in a pan by adding 1 tbsp oil till chicken is done.

Mash corn, grated cheese, mashed and boiled potato, salt if required (careful since most cheese available are already salty), crushed black pepper powder and 1 tsp cornflour for binding. Make small tikkis and shallow fry in oil. You can also tawa fry them . There is hardy any difference in taste.

Prepare the sauce by mixing and everything together and cooking for 4-5 minutes. Add cornflour if the sauce is too watery.

Setting the sizzler plate. Heat sizzler plate on medium flame. Add 1/4th tsp butter , add the onion julians and cook till it is soft. Move it to one side on plate.
Add 1/4th tsp butter again, add the corn and peas mixture and arrange it on the side.
Add butter again. Spread it well and put the stuffed capsicum pieces. Arrange it on the side.
Put the left over fried rice on the center. Arrange the corn cutlet on the side. Put the French fries over the peas and corn mixture.
Put the cooked chicken over the rice in the center.
By this time, your sizzler plate will be hot enough. Pour the sauce over the plate. The plate will start sizzling. Once the plate is hot enough, lift it from flame using a tong and place it on the wooden plate.
Serve the remaining sauce along with sizzler. Enjoy it hot.

Note: By making sizzler at home, you can definitelt control the amount of butter you consume. Instead of deep frying the french fries, you can simple toast them in tawa. It tastes equally great. Instead of chicken, you can put Paneer. I will post some paneer sizzler recipes later with a different kind of sauce. Paneer sizzler taste equally amazing.
