Homemade Cheese Powder


This homemade cheese powder is an excellent flavorful topping for your popcorn, pasta , chips or snacks. With a very simple recipe to follow,  you can easily make a spiced cheese powder at home and add a wonderful cheesy flavor to your food.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

Steps in making Cheese powder at home: Cheese powder can be made at home in 2 ways, the 1st one being dehydrating thin sheets of cheese and then grinding them using coffee grinder. The second method is to simply grate processed cheese and allow the grated cheese to air-dry. Once it is completely dried, transfer it to grinder jar along with Italian seasonings. In this recipe, i have followed the second method.


What goes into my version of Homemade Cheese Powder ? The Ingredients:

  • Processed Cheese: The first obvious ingredient is cheese. You can use any cheese variety like, Mozzarella or cheddar to make cheese powder. I have simply used Amul processed cheese cubes. 
  • Cornflour: Little amount of cornflour is used which keeps the cheese powder non-sticky and dry.
  • Spices and Herbs: Red Chili flakes , Dried Oregano, Black Pepper powder are used as flavorants.
  • Salt to taste and a bit of powdered sugar to balance the flavors.
  • Turmeric powder adds a lovely color to the cheese powder.
Dietary Notes: This Homemade Cheese Powder is
  • Vegetarian 
  • Kid Friendly
  • Topping for chips, popcorn , snacks
  •  Can be used in Pasta,pizza,bread dough for the cheesy flavor
