My sincere apologies for not putting up any post since last one month. Have been very occupied..will make sure that it doesn't happen again :)
Now I know you all missed me! I missed you all too but more importantly, I missed writing about food. So shall start doing that right away.
Today I am going to be talking about CHEESE. We all love cheese. "Amul cheese" is everyone's favorite in India, whether its on maggi or in sandwiches and dosa or on paranthas and pao bhaji. Cheese is derived by curdling the milk and is available in a wide range of flavors, textures and forms. Some of the few famous types are Cheddar(regular processed cheese like Amul), Feta, Parmesan, Mozzarella, Gouda, Blue Cheese, Gorgonzola. Cheeses which are used in making desserts, mostly Cheesecakes are Mascarpone, Cream Cheese and Ricotta. People relate cheese to getting fat but it is not fattening if consumed in small portions and is an excellent source of phosphorus, calcium, protein and B12.
If you ask me, my personal favorite is Feta Cheese which originates from Greece and is made using Goat's milk. Its sharp, tangy, slightly salty and mildly sour flavor goes really well in salads. Feta can be also crumbled over stir fried or grilled vegetables. It tastes excellent with guava too!!!
