I recently had a roast in the oven, and was looking for a side dish to accompany it, so when I happened upon a hundred-year-old recipe for Onion Souffle, I decided to give it a try.
Onion Souffle contains onions and bread crumbs, and reminds me a little of stuffing. This side dish had a robust onion flavor and nicely complemented the roast, though it was a little dry. The next time I make this Souffle, I’ll probably drizzle a little gravy or other sauce over the top.
Here is the original recipe:

Paneer or Cottage cheese is a good source of proteins, calcium, vitamin A and Vitamin B. It is super healthy and nutritious.
Best part is Paneer can be made at home from scratch –
The process starts with curdling milk. This is done by adding an acidic substance like lime juice or vinegar to warm milk.
When the acidity of the milk increases, curds of casein protein separate from the whey, the liquid part of the milk. Add more water to lessen the vinegary taste.
Now, filter this curdled milk with a muslin cloth/cheese cloth and try to remove all the water/moisture. Take the cloth with the cheese inside and press it with both hands, some more water will be released. Keep the tied cheese below a heavy pan or a heavy kitchen object and leave for some time. After sometime the cheese can be cut into pieces and used.
Dinner parties are incomplete without a sumptuous Paneer Dish and here is my favorite. Easy but simply Delicious.
