Mascarpone Cheese.. I made it @ home

I always wanted to try the heavenly Tiramisu. I haven't had the perfectly made Tiramisu and hence whenever I have one, I couldn't compare it back to anything but deep down I knew that something was missing. It just didn't seem complete. Everyone knows that it is made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of egg yolks and mascarpone, and flavored with liquor and cocoa. Chennai misses the ladyfingers and mascarpone to make the traditional dessert. But then the tiramisu fever took to me so much that I wanted to make some at home. I was open-mouthed when I saw that 100 gm of mascarpone cost nearly 250 rs. God, that is one whooping amount. So I sat to browse for homemade recipes and tried with a smaller batch. It came out too well. Next in queue is the batch for Tiramisu.

~*What U Need*~
Whipping / fresh cream - 1 cup (I used Amul fresh cream)
Freshly squeezed lemon juice - 1/2 tbsp

How I Made it:
Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a wide pan. Reduce the heat to medium-low so the water is barely simmering. Pour the cream into another pan, place this above the skillet. Heat the cream till you see small bubbles by the side of the cream. Keep stirring the whole time.Add the lemon juice and continue heating the mixture, stirring gently, until the cream curdles. Do not expect the same action as you see when you make paneer. It will become thicker and cover a back of your wooden spoon thickly.Remove the bowl from the water and let cool for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, line a sieve with muslin cloth and set it over a bowl. Transfer the mixture into this. Do not squeeze.
Once cooled completely, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or up to 24hours.

Use as desired.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
