    1. Thanks for visiting Jiji..
      Earlier when I was in SP the best brand of ricota was "Campo Lindo"... but I came to know that it is not available these days. check out with Deepali which one she uses.Making it at home is also simple and best. Just boil the milk, curdle it by adding lime juice or vinegar. Drain out the water in a muslin cloth and place a heavy thing on it. When it is set, remove from the cloth and cut into pieces.
