Mascarpone cheese is so easy and ridiculously cheap when homemade with just two ingredients. You get the same or a better texture than the shop bought one if you follow the instructions carefully. Also those in India find it difficuilt to get these kind of cheese and I hope this post might help them too. Tiramisu, Tiramisu cupcake, Pound Cake Tiramisu and many other desserts could be enjoyed more deliciously than before.
Fresh Cream (Amul/Puck/Al marai etc.) 2 cups
Lemon Juice 1 tbsp
1. Keep ready the bowl, strainer and a piece of cheesecloth or the kind.
2. Heat cream in a saucepan till bubble appears at the edges.
3.Add lemon juice to it and keep on stirring until the cream sticks to the ladle like in the picture. It won't split as in making paneer.Don't forget to scrape the bottom and sides while stirring. You may otherwise use doubleboiler to do this.
4. Switch off the flame and pour this onto the cloth which is kept on the strainer. Cover with the cloth and refrigerate for 24hours.
5. This is how it looks the next day. Mascarpone Cheese is all set to go into all your delectable desserts.
