These days half the dishes are ready-to-eat and easily available in the market. Just add water or oil, cook for a little while and you have a sumptuous feast in front of your eyes. However, they do not taste the same as a meal made from scratch. Well, it is not always easy to have all the ingredients from scratch, but you can definitely have cottage cheese made at home. In fact, if you have milk sitting in your freezer for more than 3 days, you can utilize it to make cottage cheese instead of throwing it away.
½ liter milk
2 tblsp lemon juice
1 muslin cloth
Boil the milk in a container. When the milk starts to bubble, add lemon juice and let it simmer for 2 mins. Stir continuously with spoon. Take off the flame and drain the milk on the muslin cloth.
For best results, tie the muslin cloth on the mouth of a container and drain the milk on it. Also, you can drain the milk on a sieve and then transfer the residue to the muslin cloth. Tie the muslin cloth and squeeze it under running water to drain out excess milk. Let it hang for an hour. Store in the fridge and use as required.
