How to make Spicy Ravioli Hearts

  1. In a bowl, mix the ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, a pinch of salt, garlic powder, chili flakes and mix well. Keep aside until use.
  2. For the sauce, heat a large saucepan with butter.
  3. When it melts, add the minced garlic and shallots, and when well-browned, add the flour.
  4. Mix, let it turn golden, and add the cream and salt. Whisk well and add the stock.
  5. When the sauce starts bubbling, add the cracked peppercorns/black pepper, and let the sauce reduce until it coats the back of a spoon. Keep aside.
  6. Put flour, beetroot juice or food colour and salt in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add the eggs and yolks, and mix with hands or a wooden spoon for a minute or so, until the dough comes together.
  7. If the dough seems dry or crumbly, add 1 or 2 tbsp of cold water, but just enough to keep the dough together.
  8. Turn out dough out onto a board or floured surface, and knead to form a ball.
  9. Flatten the dough ball to a 1-inch-thick disk, wrap in plastic, and let rest at room temperature for at least 1 hour (several hours is fine. You can refrigerate it overnight too, but thaw it well before moving on to the next step)
  10. Divide the dough into 4 pieces. Knead each piece until smooth, roll with a rolling pin or pasta machine as thinly as possible (but not paper-thin).
  11. Lay out the dough on a floured sheet pan/surface, and fold in half, horizontally.
  12. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter, and cut out hearts; separate the hearts. Cover with a cotton towel. Keep aside.
  13. Fill one half of the hearts with stuffing, and gently run a watered finger along the sides, place the other half on top and seal the seams with fingers or fork.
  14. Once all the raviolis are done, heat a pot of water with a generous amount of salt.
  15. Cook the raviolis for 4 to 5 mins, or until al dente.
  16. Pick out with a slotted spoon, and drain well on paper towels.
  17. Heat a saucepan with the balsamic vinegar, keeping flame on medium.
  18. Add the honey and whisk it in well.
  19. Let it simmer, stirring constantly, on a medium-high heat until the sauce reduces to a sticky consistency (will take 7 to 8 mins).
  20. Switch off flame, let it cool to room temp.
  21. In another pan, add a blob of butter, and quickly toss the raviolis in it for about 2 minutes. (this step is optional)
  22. Serve raviolis with a generous helping of sauce.
  23. Drizzle balsamic reduction over pasta just before serving, and sprinkle some finely chopped parsley.

My Tip:

You can use grated paneer instead of ricotta, and plain processed cheese instead of mozzarella. Make the pasta dough a day in advance so it's easier to assemble the dish.
