When food sizzles

Hot food is definitely tempting, what if it is smoking hot? A bed of minced meat cutlet with boiled vegetables with some great sauce and maybe mashed potatoes on the side, sizzling away at your table?

That would be a Sizzler.

Though the roots of Sizzlers are associated with seafood being served on a sizzling platter, there have been several variations with time. There are even vegetarian sizzlers now.
Non-vegetarians have several options to choose from. Steaks, chicken, mutton, pork, and of course – the original seafood. The meat is usually minced and made into a cutlet or grilled and served with french fries and lots of boiled and grilled vegetables. The spice levels can be adjusted according to your taste.

Vegetarians need not worry as there are several options available like simply veg sizzlers to cottage cheese and exotic vegetables. The vegetable cutlet or cottage cheese cubes are served with french fries, rice and noodles depending on what you choose.

But here, the sauce does the trick and enhances the flavour. There are several varieties of sauces used in the preparation to go with your rice or noodles.

Paprika or Black Pepper sauce is will give your sizzler a dash of spice.

Lettuce is spread over the sizzler plate and the assorted vegetables, rice and noodles are arranged over it. A sizzle is added by sprinkling a mixture of water and oil over the hot sizzler plate and served.
