  1. And here is the first recipe I made today!

    Creamy Scrambled Chenna Cheese with Tomatoes and Snow Peas (Chenna Malai Dalna) by Yamuna Devi (recipe not word-for-word)

    * 4 quarts whole milk
    * 1/2 cup lemon juice
    * 1/2 tablespoon cumin seeds
    * 1/2 teaspoon black mustard seeds
    * 4 tablespoons ghee
    * 6-8 fresh curry leaves
    * 6 ounces snow peas, tails and strings removed, each cut diagonally into 3 pieces and blanched
    * 2 small firm ripe tomatoes, each cut into 8 pieces
    * 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 1/8 teaspoon each ground pepper and cayenne or paprika
    * 1/2 cup cream
    * 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh cilantro (coriander)
    * 1. Bring the milk to a boil, stirring constantly over high heat. When foam begins to rise reduce the heat to moderately low and immediately add the lemon juice. Stir very slowly in one direction until large lumps of cheese form and separate from the yellowish whey. Remove the pan from the heat. Moisten a triple thick layer of cheesecloth and line a colander with it, then place colander in the sink. Lift off large pieces of cheese curd and transfer to colander. WHen most of the large curds have been transferred, pour the remaining cheese and whey through colander. Gently twist cheesecloth until tight. place wrapped cheese block back in colander and set a weight directly on cheese for 15 minutes. Break warm cheese into 1 inch pieces.

    * 2. Place a large heavy-bottomed nonstick frying pan over moderate heat for 30 seconds. Add the cumin and black mustard seeds, and shake the pan as they brown. After 30 seconds, add the ghee and fry until the mustard seeds sputter.

    * 3. Stir in snow peas, tomatoes, and saute, gently stirring, until tomato skins soften and glisten yet the tomatoes still retain their shape. Add the chenna cheese pieces, turmeric, salt, pepper, and cayenne or paprika and gently stir. Add the cream and stir until warmed, but do not bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the fresh herbs.
