We buy extra cheese because my 8 year old niece loves it but its 02 May 2020 and lockdown has been extended once again and niece is still at her maternal grandfather\'s house and neither can she come home nor can I reach the cheese to her. So had Amul Cheese block that would expire in about 25 days and with no end to lockdown there was no guarantee so we decided to finish the cheese block rather than save it and let it expire. So we had a late evening tea and early dinner together with Onion Tomato Cheese Uttapam.
