Recipe with cottage cheese is a highly nutritious and versatile ingredient. Cottage cheese is made when an acid or vinegar is added to the pasteurized milk and it results in the separation of liquid and solid contents of the milk. After curd formation, it is cut into pieces that will help to drain out extra whey from the curds. The curds are again pressed and cooked to allow further whey to be removed.
