The other important things that are required to make the mozzarella cheese are liquid rennet, cold water and also citric acid.
The steps in making the mozzarella cheese includes the mixing of the three tea spoons of the citric acid that is required along with the cool water that is taken in about half of a cup. The mixture of the citric acid and the cold water is now added to the milk. The amount of milk can be anything between 2 gallons to about two and a half gallons. The milk along with the ingredients added to it are warmed to a temperature of about 88 degrees.
After the water is heated to the said temperature, the rennet that has been mixed to about a quarter cup of water is added to the warm milk. When this is on the fire, it is gently stirred to make sure that the temperature is even in the entire dish. The next step is to allow the dish to curdle.

Once the water is drained, the remaining solid mass is heated in a microwave container to make it melt to regain uniform consistency. Once this is done, the cheese is cooled in a refrigerator to get the mozzarella cheese ready to eat.
