This is the best method for getting the desired level of forth. You need to keep stirring the milk continuously while heating. Take out the vessel after 5 to 6 minutes and let it cool. Then you can repeat the process of heating until you get the right froth. Then you can use it instead of high whipping cream.
- Corn Starch + Milk: You need to pre-froth the cornstarch by adding with milk and whipping it. Take a break after 2 minutes of whipping and allow one minute of settling before continuing. Do it for 15 minutes to get the desired volume of pure and natural froth.
- Milk+ Cottage Cheese: Add one part of cottage cheese to three parts of milk and whip for 2 minutes. Then stir the combination and continue whipping for the next 15 minutes.

Sometimes you can also add cornstarch to enhance the thickness of the froth. Whip the combination consistently for 10 minutes. Then you can let it settle for the next 10 minutes before whipping again. You can continue to do so until you get the right volume and thickness of froth.
- Cashew Cream + Soy Milk: Peel the cashew and soak it in water overnight. Check for the softness of the cashew in the morning. If required you can soak for the next 12 hours. Then you need to prepare a thick paste with water. Then you can add one part of the paste (cream) to two parts of soy milk and whip.

Why Use Charcoal Stove
You might have come across many recipes, which need heating in the oven. However, I recommend you to use charcoal stove for two basic reasons. First reason is the slow process of heating. It helps in expanding the ingredients into full froth.
The second and the most important factor are the taste and quality of cream you get. According to my personal experience, I have found it better compared to the other methods.
