Indianiazed Cheesecake/Shrikhand Cheesecake

Something hit me to have thought of this crazy idea. Post gudi padwa my fridge was flooded with chakka(hung curd). It is used to make shrikhand. When I started on the activity, DH thought I have lost it..he said, in the mission to do things differently you ladies are killing the essence of good traditional recipes. Rude!

I made just 2 small pieces, for my kid who is thankfully more adventurous for the 50% genes he has inherited.Β 

Please dont think of this as a passing recipe to be tried on a day you feel experimental. This is super recipe and I promise you wont regret making it.

Ingredients (for 2 personal cakes)
1 cup Shankarpali/ Glucose biscuits
1 cup ripe papaya
1 cup Hung Curd
1 tspn milk
2 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tbsp granulated sugar
a pinch of Saffron threads
a pinch of Nutmeg powder
a pinch of Cardamon powder
1) In a bowl, mix the hung curd, powdered sugar, saffron soaked in milk, nutmeg and cardamon powder.Mix well and refrigerate (You made shrikhand here)
2)Grind the papaya and sugar to make a puree.
3) In the same mixie bowl, crush the glucose biscuits or shankarpali to make a fine crush
4) Place a wax paper/ parchment paper in a dish.
5) Place your moulds on it
6) Press the crust(biscuit crush) with the help of a spoon.
7) Next spoon the curd mixture up to the brim almost(leave little space).
8)Finally add the papaya puree.
9) Let it set for 20-30 min in the refrigerator.
Serve and enjoy
