Begin by pouring the milk into a saucepan and heat it for approximately 15 minutes.

Next, incorporate the yogurt and lemon juice, stir gently for a few moments, and let the mixture rest for 3 hours.

Following that, strain the mixture into a separate saucepan. Utilize the cotton cloth to separate the cheese curd from the whey.

The curd collected in the cloth should then be molded and chilled in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

After chilling, unwrap the cloth and sprinkle a pinch of salt over the cheese.

Re-wrap it and return it to the refrigerator for 8 hours.

Once the cheese has rested in the fridge for this duration, it's ready to serve.
