The Cheese Soufflé is a savoury treat, which you will devour with delight! A combination of eggs, cheese and milk gives this soufflé a fabulously cheesy texture, while mustard paste and a dash of pepper give it an irresistible flavour.


Remember that each serving of the soufflé has to be baked in an individual container, as it has to be served in the same container – you can’t unmould it. Serve the Cheese Soufflé immediately after baking.


Serve with French Beans with Sesame-Seeds or Pasta Salad with Basil Vinaigrette and Melba Toast .

I left a query on ur site regarding mustard powder usage unfortunately there is no response I want to know how to use mustard powder in chicken n fish dishes I read on net that for making mustard sauce one need to age the sauce for a week or two. I make mustard powder at home by grinding mustard seeds black n yellow with little bit of turmeric n salt, can we use this powder in roast n curries does they become bitter if I use this powder n how can I make mustard sauce out of this powder kindly help me out I m scared of the bitterness comes after using this powder in my dishes

   Hi Tahira, We do not deal with any non-veg recipes. If you make the mustard powder at home, it will give a bitter taste as it is not aged well. We advice you to use the readymade sauce that you easily get in smaller quantity.
