Dish it Out: Cheese and Tomatoes

While some pairs are god made; others just find their way to their mate. And that's how the story begins, whether in life or in kitchen. Few flavors and combinations are just so apt with one another, that never for a moment we will question it. Like french fries and ketchup. Can we imagine one without the other? Or onion and garlic - just goes hand in hand. But then we can't take everything by the rulebook. We got to play a bit of a matchmaker, just to have some fun.

And this is where the fun begins - with Vardhini of Zesty Palette's brainchild event: Dish it Out. Dish it out is a monthly 'matchmaking' or flavor combining event which brings together two ingredients and ask you to put your thinking cap and create a lovely dish out of it. Simple? Right. And making it even simpler is this month's ingredients - Tomato and Cheese. 

Just reading these ingredients conjures so many tempting images in the head right from pastas to curries to salads and so on. And just to clear the doubts, our very Indian cheese - paneer is very much in the running for this, which luckily pairs extremely well with tomatoes. 
So get going and dish it out. But don't forget to read the rules mentioned below:

  1. The event runs from Dec 1st - Dec 31st.

  2. Make a dish using "Cheese and Tomatoes". We should be able to taste the ingredients in the final dish.
