Cheesecake in the Brownie

 

What an idea of having cheesecake and brownie together.

So many ingredients may be intimidating but once you gather everything as i do ….and weigh and measure them all….its a cake walk LOL.

I begin with noting down the recipe on a piece of paper. That ways i go through everything once and kind of get into cooking mode. Apna apna style hai…:D . This recipe is taken from Khusboo Kothari”s Blog. I have started trusting her recipes blindly now….

Ok so for Cheesecake she recommends lemon and its zest. My lemons had no life in them but my oranges were plump and sweet. So in my recipe i used orange rinds and used peeled 4pcs of orange. You can see them in the red measuring cup . Also i used home made cream cheese made with yogurt and cottage cheese. ( dahi and paneer ). I found tofu and pureed it with little water around 2 tbsps. My blenders were not able to puree without that. I guess one can grate them first and then puree.

  • 226 gms Cream Cheese.
  • 125 gms puree of silken or any other tofu ( hung curd can be used too)
