As a result, it is being promoted by manufacturers as a healthy and high protein snack for both adults and children. With changing consumption patterns, cheese has emerged as one of the most popular dairy products in India and is used in dishes like mashed potatoes, soups, sauces, macaroni and casseroles. Besides this, it is also being added as a taste enhancer in various Indian recipes, such as dosa, parathas and uttapam.
