About Paneer Cheesecake Recipe
A cheesecake is a sweet dessert with one or more layers. The main, thickest layer is made up of a soft, fresh cheese, eggs, and sugar. If there is a bottom layer, it is usually a crust or base made of crushed cookies, graham crackers, pastry, or occasionally sponge cake.
Paneer, also known as ponir or Indian cottage cheese, is a fresh acid- set cheese made from cow or buffalo milk that is popular in the Indian subcontinent. It is a soft cheese that is not aged and does not melt. It is made by curdling milk with a fruit or vegetable-derived acid, such as lemon juice.
Ingredients for Paneer Cheesecake Recipe
Paneer has a mild, milky flavour and a dense crumbly texture that complements the strong spicy flavours found in many traditional Indian dishes. Because it does not melt like other cheeses, chunks of it can be stirred into soups or curries and stay whole.
A digestive biscuit, also known as a sweet-meal biscuit, is a type of semi-sweet biscuit that originated in Scotland. Two Scottish doctors invented the digestive in 1839 to aid digestion.
Sweetened Condensed Milk
Sweetened condensed milk is cooked until it thickens and becomes a creamy caramel-like pudding that can be used in a variety of dessert recipes. Its delicious on its own, with ice cream, in coffee, or spread on apple slices.
It acts as a natural adhesive in foods such as jams, jellies, and gummy candy such as gummy bears.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is real cheesecake made of?
A classic cheesecake is a study in simplicity. One of the most popular types of cheesecake is made with just three simple ingredients: cream cheese, sugar, and eggs. Different countries and places have their own spin on tradition, often using ricotta, mascarpone, and quark instead of cream cheese.
Is cream cheese and paneer same?
No, paneer and cream cheese are not the same thing. Though they are both made in the same way by separating cheese curds from whey, they begin at different points. While Paneer is made entirely of milk, Cream Cheese is made with a milk-to-cream ratio of 1:2.
