  • Hi, I liked the way you have placed a heavy bowl on the plate. That's the simplest and creative way of cooking. Please do share these kinds of ideas to make cooking life simple and effective 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  • Hello Dassana,

    Can we use cheese slices instead of grated cheese ?
    Also what is the difference between processed,mozzarella and cheddar cheese like how do we differentiate when we purchase them and how do we decide for like which category of cheese has to be used for which food ?

    Thanks

    • Welcome Meghà. You can use cheese slices. I don't use because we don't like the taste of cheese slices. The difference in the various types of cheese is the preparation and method and the culturing. Read the cheese label before buying. on google you will get to know the process in details on how these various cheese are made and where they can be used. most of the times i mention which type of cheese to be used in the recipe.
