1- Homemade mozzarella with cornstarch

1 liter milk
200 g corn starch
1 tablespoon level salt

Preparation mode:

  • In a deep pan, place the milk, and add the cornstarch, stir until the cornstarch is completely dissolved.

  • Bring the pan to the fire, stirring constantly so it doesn't clump like this, when you notice that the mixture has thickened, lower the heat and keep stirring until the dough comes off the bottom of the pan.
  • Turn off the heat and pour the dough into a baking dish (I usually use those ice cream pots because, when unmoulding, it's very practical)
