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 tasted so yummy. it was little dense but still creamy and tasty.. 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..

**Preparation Time : 30 mins**

**Setting Time : Overnight**

**Serves : 8 to 10 servings**

**Ingredients:**

**For Crust:**

Digestive Biscuits – 12 to 15

Unsalted Butter – 75 grams melted

**For Filling:**

Hung Yogurt or Cream Cheese– 1 cup ( I used Homemade)

Icing Sugar or Powdered Sugar – 1 cup

Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp

Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips – 1.5 cup

Cream – 1/2 cup ( I used amul 25% fat cream)

Gelatin – 1 tblspn

**For Topping:**

Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips – 1 cup

Cream – 1/2 cup ( I used amul 25% fat cream)

*My 1 cup measures 240 ml*

**Method:**

Line a 18 cm round baking pan with plastic wrap and set aside.

Start by making crust. Take biscuits in a blender and powder them, add in melted butter and mix well.

Spoon this in the pan and press it evenly using a spoon. Chill this in fridge till you need them.

Now take chocolate in a bowl and melt them in microwave or a double boiler on low flame till it is melted. Set aside.

Whip some cream untill it forms soft peaks. Set aside.

First take gelatin and add in cold water. Mix well. Set aside so it softens. Now take this in a a sauce pan and melt it gently till the gelatin is completely melted.

Now take hung curd or cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla in a bowl and use beater to whip this till creamy.

Add in melted chocolate and whip to mix. Fold in cream and mix gently.

Drizzle in gelatin mix and mix gently.

Now spoon this mix over the chilled crust and chill this overnight.

Now remove this carefully from tin using the help of plastic wrap and set aside.

Slice and serve.

**Pictorial:**

Thank you for this great recipe. I made this cake for my mother's friends whilst visiting her in a small town in Kerala. Ingredients like cream cheese are scarce there and ovens are unreliable. They loved it!! My filling had more of a mousse like texture so I just renamed the dessert chocolate mousse but it was a big hit. Thanks again for this wonderful recipe.
