How I Made Mozzarella Cheese for Weight Gain At Home
Hello everyone, today I’m going to post a recipe on how to make homemade mozzarella cheese for weight gain.
There are plenty of cheese varieties available in the market. I guess the most favourite cheese in the world is mozeralla because it is widely used for making pizzas. Pizzas being everyone’s favorite. I can choose mozeralla cheese over anything else just like how I would probably do with pizzas, any day. I have been trying to find recipes and guidelines on how to make my own cheese at home. And internet made everything possible. I found that the cheese making I that you need to buy is called rennet. And though the bottle was pricey and huge, I decided to buy it and make my own batch of love..I mean cheese.
I’m an absolute mozzarella cheese lover and whenever I have them in my freezer I am always on a hunt to find various ways of including them in my diet. Since I’m in a semi-urban part of Kerala, it is very difficult for me to find good quality mozzarella cheese. The mozzarella cheese I usually use in my recipes are the ones from the brand ‘three cows’ or ‘Puck’.
Since I haven’t found a close substitute for these mozzarella cheese in Kerala, I decided to make my own batch. It was obviously a lot of efforts, time and money. But the result was far greater than the store bought mozzarella cheese.
How I made Mozeralla Cheese without a Microwave!
1. Vegetable rennet – 3 drops
2. Citric acid powder – 1/4 Tsp
3. Fresh Milk (preferably full cream) – I took 2.8 litres
4. Salt- 1 tsp
Rubber Gloves (optional)
Preparation Method of Mozeralla Cheese:
Step 1: Take the milk in huge steel saucepan preferably with a heavy bottom. Add the citric powder in a cup of water and pour this to the milk. Place a cooking Thermometer immediately in it and wait until it reaches 90° F.
Step 2: Remove from heat. Add the rennet drops to a cup of water and quickly as this to milk. Mix gently while you count for 30 seconds.
Step 3: Leave it aside closing the lid until the firm curds are formed. Can take 5 minutes to 45 minutes. Keep checking in between after 5 or 10 minutes with a spatula or a knife. When the firm curds are formed, cut grids on to the curd and cook them until the thermometer reads 105°F. Remove from heat and set aside for 5 mins.
Step 4: Sieve the curds and mix with your hands. Remove as much whey as possible and the curds should be grainy when you are trying to mix it.
Step 5: Now add boiling hot water on the curds and move a spatula upwards to stretch the curds. Add a teaspoon of salt into the cheese. And stretch for 2-3 times and the grainy mixture will turn to a smooth and silky texture now. Stretch it as much as possible without breaking the thread and finally roll it to a neat dough like shape. Once you have shaped the mozzarella, dip them in ice water for some time.
N.B: The water as it boiling one can cause you serious burns. Handle the curd and the water carefully. I highly recommend you to use rubber gloves.
Step 6: Your mozzarella cheese is ready. Refrigerate and use as necessary in your food.
