Vrat Wala Cheesecake


Cheesecake is a dessert typically made with soft fresh cheese (like cottage cheese, cream cheese, or ricotta), eggs, and sugar, often with a crust or base made from crushed cookies or digestive biscuits. In this recipe, I have used homemade unsalted. The filling combines paneer, hung curd, condensed milk, roasted makhana powder, saffron, milk, and cardamom powder, garnished with pistachios and rose petals.
