Home made Indian Cheese Cake
Guest Blog by Baisakhi
I am back with guest blog for February!! My dear friend, newly married bride has shared her home made cheese cake recipe with us. This crowd pleasing summer treat will have your family and friends swoon in delight. It is one of those desserts which is quite simple to make but looks as if you have toiled for hours. I also feel this is the best way to welcome sunny summer!!
I am big fan of cheese cakes and always end up going to these fancy places and pay lot of bucks to enjoy a slice of cake. Surprisingly we can make a decent cheese cake at home with all Indian ingredients as well. Thanks again baisakhi for taking time and clicking these beautiful pics and sharing this yumm recipe for all of us!
Amul cheese- 1 cup
Digestive biscuits 5-6
Set curd- 1/2 cup
Amul cream- 1 Packet
Gelatine or lemon grass- 1 tsp
(Suggestion- use only vegetarian gelatine. Please check the ingredients before buying and avoid the ones with animal extract)
Castor sugar 1/2 cup
Vanilla essence 1 tsp
Britania sponge cake 1
Butter 3 tsp
Grind the biscuits and mix the melted butter with it. Line the base of the serving dish evenly and smoothly with the biscuit mixture. Spread and press well with hand. Put in the freezer for 20 min or so to set.
Now in a blender add curd, cream,vanilla essence, castor sugar and melted gelatine and whip it nicely.
Remove the set crust from the freezer and pour this mixture onto the set biscuit base and add some more crushed cake for texture on top.
Cover and put in the fridge to set for few hours. Garnish with sliced strawberries or blueberries and serve cold!!
