I had seen this type of recipe on some TV show-not the same but similar. So tried to do something different.
This Cheese cake is very easy to make and probable is not heavy.
For base I used Marie cookies or Digestive biscuits-these are very light, sweet and dry cookies and make a great base . You can put the cookies in a thick plastic bag and use roller over it or use back of a smooth bowl to gently crus the cookies.
I used Kafir Cleese this is a kind of Yogurt -it is also called Greek Yogurt. This type of yogurt is available in Middle Eastern Market.. The liquid is drained from yogurt by draining the liquid from regular yogurt with a fine cheese cloth.
I used Cream Cheese, Condensed Milk, and a little unflavored gelatin or Agar-Agar.
The name Motichur is from the type of Ladoos which are sweet balls- available in Indian Market and Sweet stores in India- they are also known as Bundi Ladoo. I used these sweet Ladoos-crumbled them on top and topped it with sliced Almonds.
i used large cleart glass Baking pan. This recipe is good for 10 to 12 people-depending on the size of serving.
This can be done ahead of time- good for a couple of days.
Mix melted butter and crushed cookins in a mixing bowl and put it in the bottom of the pan and flatten it with light pressure-you can use back of a smooth bowl
Heat about 1 cup of water- dissolve the agar-agar in the 3 Tablespoon of water in a cup.
Pour the agar-Agar mixture in the water when the water comes to boil. Turn of heat and mix well. let it stand.
In a large mixing bowl- m blend Yogurt, Cream cheese and Condensed milk. Add the Agar-Agar after it is cold andblen well with a hand mixer.
The mixture will be thick. Now pour the mixture in the pan gently over the Crushe Cookies in the Baking pan.. Cover and refrigerate till serving time.
Just before serving, top this Cheesecake with crubled Miotichur Ladus and slices almonds.
Cut and serve with a Cake spatula. ENJOY!.
