Top 20 Veg Cheesse Recipes

Cheese is everybody’s favourite! From kids who can afford to have as much as they want, to adults who know it can be fattening, nobody can resist the temptation of digging into a cheesy delight. And this is a phenomenon in which all peoples of the world unite!

There are different types of cheese, from our fresh and indigenous paneer to exotic versions that are fermented for years, from varieties that retain their graininess to those that melt like a soft glue, from those that taste plain to those with a bit of sourness, cheeses across the world have their own signature taste and texture, which impacts the dish they are used in too.

Some dishes use a single variety of cheese like the Cheese Paratha, while others use a combination of varieties to get the right texture and taste like the Four Cheese Pizza. Cheese can be added as a garnish on baked dishes, or cooked with the dish to get a nice, gooey finish like the Cheese Poppers, Cheese Chilli Toast or the Mexican Cheese Fondue. Cheese can be had hot and molten, or cold and grated. Basically, it can cater to you, whatever your preference might be!

This article gives you the best cheese-based delights, from the spicy toasts served on Mumbai’s streets to the fondue, which is a real ‘melting pot of cultures'.

Top 20 Cheese Recipes

If the name makes you believe that this is a simple toast of bread with cheese and chilli flakes, you are in for a huge surprise. On Mumbai’s streets, Cheese Chilli Toast is an elaborate treat, of chutney-coated bread topped with a succulent mixture of cheese, capsicum and green chillies. Toasted with a brushing of butter, the Cheese Chilli Toast is a snack that will perk you up instantly with its vibrant flavour and wonderful texture. Serve it hot and fresh with tomato ketchup and green chutney.

This is not one of those bland, cheesy fondues! It is a spicy treat, a true tongue-tickler that will shake awake your taste buds. Here, two exotic varieties of cheese are perked up with a flavourful, homemade chunky salsa, jalapeno paste, peppy seasonings and a couple of other ingredients, which lend the Mexican Cheese Fondue a perfectly creamy texture and fabulous flavour. Although the ingredients sound exotic, they are now easily available in specialty stores and the gourmet sections of supermarkets and online shopping websites, so you will not have any trouble finding them. When adding the cheese to the fondue, it is important to stir the mixture in the shape of an eight to prevent it from sticking to the bottom. Watch our video to understand the nuances of making this delicacy. You can also try other fondues like@r 22739 and Asparagus Fondue .

An easy but irresistible paratha that is made of everyday ingredients, the Cheese Paratha is an all-time favourite with cheese-lovers, especially kids. A stuffing of cheese perked up with coriander and spice powders gives these whole wheat parathas a tasty and gooey centre. You must enjoy this delectable dish immediately on preparation if you want to experience the joy of biting into the freshly molten cheese, because it tends to get chewy after a while. Accompany this paratha with a bowl of Lentil, Tomato and Spinach Soup and Pasta Salad to create an authentic mini meal that will be enjoyed by young and old alike.

Cheese and herb potato fries, let your child indulge occasionally in this cheesy version of french fries topped with flavoursome mixed herbs. Though it makes a great snack, avoid packing it as a main meal.
Mac n Cheese is an international favourite, which features boiled macaroni in a gooey cheese sauce, baked with a topping of bread crumbs and cheese. The amazingly cheesy crust that forms on baking, and the luscious macaroni beneath it, offer an unforgettable experience that is enjoyed equally by young and old. What makes this version of Mac n Cheese special is that three different cheeses are used. This gives the Mac n Cheese a unique flavour and texture, as each cheese has a different character. Enjoy it hot and fresh before it get chewy.

This dosa is so tasty and cheesy and scrumptious that it could well be a strong competitor for pizzas! Palak Cheese Dosa is an innovative recipe that features buttery dosas layered with a paste of palak, cheese, onions, tomatoes and other taste-givers, followed by a topping of grated cheese. Folded into an appetizing shape, these dosas are truly, completely irresistible! Next time when you have guests over, build a party platter of a wide variety of dosas which everyone is sure to love - Corn Dosa , Dosa Lasagne , Jini Dosa , Moong Dal Dosa .
The all-time favourite combo of Nacho Chips with Cheese Dip is not only energizing but also delightful to kids because they love the ‘chip-n-dip’ concept. It will be so much fun to find such an exciting option in the tiffin box that they would love to share it with their friends, so make sure you pack a little extra. You can use readymade nacho chips to save time. When making the dip, make sure you cook it for exactly the mentioned time although it might be a little thin then. We are removing it in a semi-done consistency because it is going to be packed in a box and eaten after a few hours, at which time it will be perfect! This flavourful cheese dip stays fresh in the dabba for 4 to 5 hours. Also pack some Healthy No Bake Cookies in another tiffin for a perfect short break combo.

Know anybody who can resist the ‘dip, pop’ rhythm of nachos served with their favourite dip? Well, here is an interesting variant of Nachos with Cheese, which makes it easy to serve at parties. When the corn chips are topped with a mustard flavoured cheese sauce and garnished with crispy capsicum, the guests can easily take a cheesy piece of nachos and pop it into their mouth without the hassle of a separate dip. So, it is as easy as ‘pop, pop’!
This crunchy accompaniment is cheese, cheese and cheese all the way through, so nothing can please cheese-lovers more! A simple flavouring of oregano and chilli-flakes ensures that the overall effect is very pleasing. Fried mozzarella sticks can also be served as a party starter . Just keep a few things in mind when making it though… the oil should be very hot and the sticks should be deep-fried over a high flame. Also, you can double-coat the sticks with the batter and the crumbs so that the cheese does not ooze out of the covering. Serve as an accompaniment to sandwiches, burgers , pastas and soups .

Common though it sounds, the Grilled Cheese Sandwich can be a masterpiece if prepared perfectly, with the right proportions of cheese and butter. Most people make the mistake of preparing it exclusively with one type of cheese, but the secret to getting the ideal texture is to use a combination of cheese slices and grated processed cheese, as you will realise upon trying this recipe. What more, this humble sandwich – which is so easy to prepare – will appear more desirable than a lavish spread on days when you or somebody you know is intolerably hungry and you quickly fix up and enjoy this sandwich fresh off the grill.
A yummy Mexican snack of potatoes, baked with a cheesy stuffing. Papas Con Quesco has the pleasant flavour of potatoes and cheese, dotted with green chillies, and laced with hot and sweet sauce. It is quite a fascinating experience, with its enjoyable texture and exotic taste. You can serve it as a snack or as a starter.

Cheesy dips are the perfect accompaniment for crunchy, juicy vegetable strips, spicy chips, nachos, or whatever crunchy snack you wish to munch on. Here is a creamy and tangy Quick Cheese Dip, which can be prepared in minutes. Green chillies and vinegar provide spiky notes that balance the dairy dominance, making this a fantastic dip that is sure to be enjoyed by all. Use a hand blender to prepare this dip in order to get the correct consistency. Using a regular blender might make the dip too watery.
