Strawberry Cheese Cake

Strawberry cheesecake3
I love cheese cake.. Or rather I love anything that is creamy and yummy :) I like it even after knowing how much of a damage it would cause to my waist line!! I always hear my food shouting out to me as "Now or never". Yup! Eat them all when you are healthy and young. Never postpone or keep yourself away from your cravings. Life is short and enjoy it everyday with a dessert of your choice :) My man would love these lines of mine :P

Strawberry cheesecake

Ingredients:
Biscuits (Digestive Marie) - 6
Melted butter - 3 tsp

Strawberry crush - 1/2 cup + 1/4 cup for top layer

Hung curd - 1/2 cup

Fresh cream - 1/2 cup

Sugar - 2 tblsp

Gelatin - 3 tsp
+ 1 tsp
Water - 4 tsp

Strawberry cheesecake1

Method:
Grind the biscuits and mix in the melted butter with it, until it forms crumbs. Line the base of the serving dish with the biscuit mixture and press gently. Put in the fridge to set for an hour. Prepare hung curd using a muslin cloth. Beat whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks. Fold the cream, hung curd and 1/2 cup of strawberry crush together until it blends well to make a smooth mixture. Add 4 tsp of water in 3 tsp gelatin and microwave at high for 30 seconds or until completely dissolved. Then pour the gelatin slowly into the strawberry mixture. Keep stirring continuously.Now pour the strawberry mixture onto the set biscuit base.Cover and put in the fridge to set overnight. Take a bowl with 1 tsp of gelatin and pour 2 tsp of water and microwave for 30 seconds. Mix in 1/4 cup of strawberry crush and pour on top of the cheese cake layer and refrigerate for 3 hours. Serve chill with some whipped cream topping.

Note:

I dint have a spring form pan(Pan with removable base) so I used glass tumblers for my cheese cake. This is an interesting way to make individual portions of cheese cake :)

I will make this one but I do not think we will have the patience to wait for this yummy dessert for 2 days. If I know my daughters I will find fingers dipped in the glasses and if i know my hubby i glass will be eaten up before hand. But I will make it for sure.

Hi,
I am a long time reader of your blog. But have never commented before. You have a great blog with lovely recipes and great photos!

I have a question regarding this recipe. If I use hung curd in this recipe will it not turn sour in a day? What will be the shelf life of the cake if I use hung curd? Please let me know.

-Priya

Nithya said...

Thanks all :)

@ Priya - Thank you so much for following my blog. The shelf life of cheese cake is generally 3-4 days and you need to keep them in refrigeration. They dont turn sour until 4 days and I bet you would never have to keep them for that long, they are super delicious and will keep you tempted always.
