Sweet Melange For A Merry Christmas - Indian Cheese Cake


SWEET MELANGE FOR A MERRY CHRISTMAS
INDIAN CHEESE CAKE / PANEER CAKE
This simple and easy to make Indian Cheese Cake / paneer cake,  can be prepared even by children. My grand children are ardent viewers of the popular T. V. show 'MasterChef Australia'. They gave me some very useful tips while making this cake. It was so easy to make the cake. And it was all the more easy to polish it off  as soon as it was ready!


INGREDIENTS

Marie biscuits - 20
Butter - 1/2 cup
Hot milk - 1 cup
Indian cheese / paneer - 200 gms
Powdered sugar - 1 tsp
Sweetened Condensed milk - 1 tin
Canned fruits - 1 can
METHOD
1. Take a shallow bowl and line it firmly with a greased butter paper.
2. Blend 12 Marie biscuits into a coarse powder.
3. Melt the butter and add enough to the biscuit powder so that the crumbs cling together.
4. Pat the mixture evenly into the bowl  making a thick base to support the cheese cake.

.

5. Dip the remaining biscuits in a cup of hot milk and arrange them on the biscuit crumb base.



6. Cut the Indian cheese / paneer into cubes and boil them in water for five minutes or until they become fluffy.


7. Drain the cooked  cheese / paneer thoroughly and knead into a soft dough adding one spoon of powdered sugar.


8. Spread  a thick layer of the  cheese /paneer dough on top of the biscuit layer.


9. Pat evenly and firmly and chill for half an hour.
10. Add one teaspoon of butter to the condensed milk and  microwave for one minute or till it starts bubbling  using  a microwave safe bowl. 
11. Bring out the chilled cake bowl. Spread the cooked condensed milk all over the cheese cake. Refrigerate again for fifteen minutes.
12. Run a sharp knife between the wall of the bowl and the now set cake and gently slide the cake on to a plate.
13. Top with thoroughly drained canned fruits.


Gently slice the delicious Indian Cheese Cake / Paneer Cake.

Does the paneer blend well with the rest of the ingredients?

Hi Radha, Sorry for reply so late! Paneer goes surprisingly well with desserts. Many western cheese cakes make use of ricotta, which is nothing but paneer! Give it a try!
