    1. Tofu is made from soy milk and paneer is make from cow's milk.

  30. Hi padu can you explain me what is salted and unsalted butter? What about pasteurised butter...can we use that butter in cooking?

    1. Difference between salt and unsalted butter- butter which is salted and butter which is unsalted. Check about Pasteurized butter in the link - http://www.cooksinfo.com/pasteurized-butter
