This is a pretty easy to make cheesecake. You just need a handful of ingredients to make this. The more cool thing is you dont need cream cheese to make this cheesecake. So you can easily call this recipe as cheesecake without creamcheese..I used hung curd to make this, i took some thick yogurt and poured in some cheesecloth lined over a sieve and put it in fridge and let it drip overnight, the next day i got the beautiful thick hung yogurt which can be easily substituted for cream cheese.

This cheesecake is so creamy and has crunchy bits of nuts all over the top... This has a buttery biscuit as the base and a luscious creamy filling. Really yummy. Hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..
