Paneer Sandwich

7 Jan

One of the nicest ways of using fresh paneer (cottage cheese) is in a toasted sandwich. I have an electric sandwich toaster which comes in handy at breakfast time. If you don’t own one, you could probably grill your paneer sandwich or cook in a non-stick pan on a stove top.

Corn with Spinach and Cheese

15 Dec

Corn on the cob is so good boiled, I mostly have it without taking it through any elaborate "treatment" routine. A little salt, a little chilli powder, a dash of lime juice โ€“ rub it on and bite directly off the cob โ€“ that’s my usual mode of having boiled corn.

Then again, there is something to be said for the occasional exoticization.

Presenting for you my recipe of corn spinach and cheese. Serve it with garlic bread for a sumptuous weekend brunch.

Easy Cheesy Zucchini

11 Jun

For a very quick and delicious dinner, I turn to zucchini. It takes no effort at all – easy to chop (compare it to its cousin the ridge gourd – all that peeling!), cooks really fast. Not easily available with my neighborhood vegetable vendor, but worth getting back from a bigger store and keeping in the fridge for a late work night when there’s no time for an elaborate meal. This easy ‘cheesy zucchini’ is a savior on a busy workday.

5 Aug

There was a time when I lived next to a dairy that sold really fresh, soft paneer (cottage cheese). Now the only paneer I can lay hands on is the store-bought variety. Fridge life of three weeks says the wrapper, but within three days it starts to feel rubbery and sour.

Homemade paneer has acquired irresistible charm. Pre-packaged paneer will do no more – the taste buds crave the real deal.

Fortunately, this is an easily satiated craving. It is surprisingly easy to make paneer at home.

Cheese-Coated Cauliflower

28 Feb

Cauliflower has a lovely flavor of its own and doesn’t need many add-ons to taste great. This recipe of cheese-coated cauliflower that lets the cauliflower’s natural taste stand out. The conventional recipe of cooking cauliflower with cheese would use a heavier cheese sauce, but this one rides on just a hint of cheese – enough to get your taste buds feel it but not so much that it overshadows the cauliflower.
