Oh I am reading this recipe at 8 AM and I am now wanting to make it! I love Kashmiri Mirch and use it every day -I love chiles and this one has such a lovely taste not so hot like habanaros or that crazy ‘Naga Jolokia’ from Assam. This recipe of yours is such a taste satisfying dish. If people cooked like this they would not over eat as their plates would be so happy and satisfied! I am making this soon. Do you have a recipe for Bread-Fruit Curry as in Kerela? I love it.

Can you make paneer with ultra pasteurized milk? I can get it from the Indian market but I want to make it for myself. It's not so easy to get anything in my neck of the woods that hasn't been pasteurized to death...

i guess u can make it from pasteurized milk as we make it here using pasteurized milk only. :)

Commercial paneer in the Indian markets (usually from Canada) just isn't good like home made-it has a weird to me rubbery texture. Home made paneer and of course curd are far better!

I was just wondering if anyone had tried it with Ultra Pasteurized over just Pasteurized milk... I used to be able to get regular pasteurized milk at my market but even that company has gone to Ultra only - I would think the extra heat might kill whatever is needed to make it start up?

the negative aspect of "ultra pasteurized milk." It is not even very nutritious to drink, and won't work for home cheese making.find farm fresh milk from now on, not only for cheese making, but for ur family's health benefit as well. I found it very interesting to learn that cheese can be made from sheep's milk. Silly me, I never knew that sheep's milk was something people would use at all, much less make cheese from.sheep's milk is very nutritious and since it contains less water than cow or goat milk, the cheese yield from using it is much higher.
