Blueberry n Rasgulla Cheesecake with Hazelnuts Recipe | #FusionDiwali
 
Ingredients
  • Biscuits - 120 Gms
  • Melted Butter - 75ml (More or less)
  • Cream Cheese - 200g
  • Powdered Sugar - ⅓ Cup
  • Whipping Cream - 300ml
  • Condensed Milk - 200ml
  • Agar Agar / China Grass - 10g
  • Blueberries - 3 Tbs or more (I used Dried, hence soaked overnight in ½ cup water)
  • Hazelnuts - 3 Tbs
  • Mini Rasgullas - 25-30 or more
Instructions
  1. Start by taking the biscuits and crush them until they resemble bread crumbs. Slowly pour in the melted butter and mix until it feels like wet sand.
  2. Transfer the biscuit and butter mix to a 9" Spring Form Cake Tin and press down using a glass until its flat and smooth. Refrigerate.
  3. Soak the agar agar in ⅓ cup of water for 15 minutes.
  4. Whip the whipping cream until stiff peaks.
  5. In a mixing bowl, add the cream cheese and powder sugar. Whip it well until creamy and smooth.
  6. Take a pan and heat it up in low flame, add the soaked agar agar and cook it until it is well dissolved and no traces are seen.
  7. Warm the condensed milk in a pan, Once the agar is dissolved, add the agar mix to the hot condensed milk. Stir well and cook for 2 mins. Let it cool down a little bit.
  8. Once the condensed milk+agar mix is hot but not boiling, pour it over the cream cheese mix and whisk well. You can sieve the condensed milk mix into the cream cheese mix rather than just pouring, but its optional.
  9. Add the berries and hazelnuts and mix well. You can also add a little bit of the soaked berry water for more flavor and color.
  10. Now add the whipped cream and rasgullas. Fold it well, do not mix it vigorously.
  11. Add the cheesecake mix to the cake tin and spread it well. Refrigerate overnight or for 10-12 hours and serve.
  12. For Serving, Run a small knife over the edge of the cake tin to seperate the cake from the tin. And open the tin. Decorate as you wish and enjoy!
Notes
I decorated the cake with soaked berries, whipped cream, rasgullas, hazelnuts, blueberry syrup and a sprig of mint. For the blueberry syrup, i did a cheat by add 2 tsp of sugar to the blueberry water(the one we had soaked berries in) and reduced it by cooking till it was thick and used it after it cooled.

Instructions
  1. For the dough : add the yeast and sugar to ½ cup water and keep aside for 10 mins.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add all the rest ingredients and mix well add the yeast and water mix and make a dough if needed add more warm water. Knead the dough for 5-6 mins.
  3. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with a damp towel/cling warp and let it prove for a hour or until its doubled.
  4. For Spice Mix - Add all the ingredients in a mortar-pestle and pestle it down until well combined and grounded for about 10-12 mins.
  5. For making the breadsticks - After the dough has proved, take it out and place it in a corn meal dusted surface and knead for a minute or two.
  6. Roll the dough out to 26cm diameter in a corn meal dusted surface.
  7. Spread mayonnaise in one side of the dough(in a semi circle way), get some cheddar cheese in, followed by sweet corn kernels, jalapenos, a little of spice mix and mozzarella cheese.
  8. Apply water in the edges and fold over. Press down the edges. Something like a calzone it is so far.
  9. Transfer this to a tawa/pizza tray which is very well greased with butter. Make slits in the bread at 1 inch difference to make the slits but just make slowly and dont go to the bottom.
  10. Take butter and grease the bread with it. Sprinkle the spice mix over and a little of oregano.
  11. If you like more of bread structure, let it rest for 25-30 mins before baking. Otherwise bake it right away at 200 C in a preheated oven for 20-25 mins or until its well baked.
  12. Give your temptations a wait of 10 mins before slicing.. Slice and serve..
Notes
I usually add the spice mix in the dough instead of adding the oregano, basil, thyme, chili flakes. Works both ways and taste awesome both ways.
