    1. There are parmesan-style cheeses that don’t use rennet. They just aren’t certified as parmesan but they work in its place.

  1. Hi Aunty:
    Your recipes have great variety and are a helpful resource. Can these spinach triangles be baked?

    1. Hi Aunty,
      Thanks so much for this easy and yummy recipe . I tried making it with whole wheat flour instead and baked it at 320 degree Fahrenheit for 20 mins. It came out nice and crispy. My little one enjoyed it .

      1. Thanks Aunty

        Best Regards,

  8. Hi Manjula,

    i think you are an amazing lady. i wish you were my neighbor, I would be hanging out in your house all the time. Not only because you are a great cook, but also because you seem to be a caring and warm person and it’s something everyone seems to grasp every time they tune in to watch your videos. I love Indian food, but I’ve never tried to cook it myself. However, when I watch your videos you encourage me to do it so. I will pretty soon! We don’t have any Indian stores close by, but I will definitely get back to you when I try any of your great recipes.

    Thanks again for sharing those wonderful dishes!

    i tried this recipe today…it was really yummy…..my mom was just unable to stop munching …
    thank you so much….plz tell us some more appertizers like this which are easy to make and yet so delicious
    lots of love 🙂 🙂

  11. Hi Malini,
    I guess you could substitute it with what ever cheese you happen to like as long as it’s not a soft cheese but then again Manjula herself will tell you to experiment with what ever you like – cooking is sometimes only limited by ones own imagination! Good luck.

    1. Hi Liane,

      Thank you for your response.

      I will definitely try with some other cheese may be “mozzarella”.
      Let’s see how it turns out.
      Manjula Aunty’s recipes never fail though!! :))

      Cheers,
      Malini

      1. Malini,

        Mozzarella would not work as it is a soft cheese. It melts a lot. You need to find a hard cheese, like Pecorino.

    1. Mili,

      As per my knowledge parmesan cheese is not vegetarian. Many Parmensan Cheeses espcially Parmigiano Reggiano (made in Italy) are made with calf rennet (stomach/intestine) lining of the calves. Please do check the labels of the cheese. But the labels maybe deceiving as well because they list the calf rennet under “enzyme” at times. The best bet would be to do some research and/or call the number on the product to enquire about the ingredients. But I think these crackers will just be as delicious without the cheese. Plus it does have the extra benefit of spinach!

  12. Hi Manjula auntyji,

    Thanks once again for this yummy recipe.
    I don’t like parmesan cheese at all. Is there a substitute that I could consider??
    Please advise auntyji.

    Thank you.
    Malini
