Ingredients
  • Measurements Used 1 Cup = approx 240ml, 1 tablespoon = 15 ml, 1 teaspoon = 5 ml
You will need One 7 inch removable cake pan
For the Digestive biscuit crust
  • 100 grams Biscuits (like McVitie's )
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
For the Filling
  • Hung Yogurt made with 500 ml milk (procedure follows)
  • Homemade Paneer made with 750 ml milk and 2 teaspoon lemon juice (procedure follows)
  • 200 ml cream (like Amul)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1¾ tablespoon gelatin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup water
For the topping
  • ¼ cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
Instructions
  1. For the hung yogurt - Place the yogurt on a strainer lined with muslin cloth and let it rest for 3 hours. After three hours you will have really thick yogurt. Set aside.
  2. For the Paneer - Boil 750 ml of milk in a pan and let it come to a boil. Add 2 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice when the milk is boiling and bubbling over. stir for a minute with a spatula until the milk curdles. Remove off heat. Strain the mixture and you will be left with soft paneer. Set aside.
  3. For the Digestive Biscuit Crust - Break up the biscuits and place in a food processor / mixie along with the butter and pulse it to crumbs. Press the mixture into the bottom of the removable cake pan. Make sure its even. Use a spoon to press the crumbs to adhere to the pan. Set aside.
  4. Filling
  5. Powder the sugar in a food processor / mixie to a smooth powder. Set aside.
  6. Add the hung yogurt and the paneer and pulse it in a blender until smooth. Add in the cream, sugar, salt and vanilla extract and pulse it 2-3 times until combined.
  7. Take a small cup and mix the gelatin with ¼ cup water and set aside for 5 minutes. The gelatin will absorb all the water and puff up. After 5 minutes heat it in a microwave for 20-30 seconds until completely melted. Let it cool slightly.
  8. Add the gelatin mixture to the filling mixture and mix well to combine. Add it to the cake pan. Leave it to set in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours.

  11. Serve the cake chilled!
Notes
Milk - Its preferable to use full fat milk for making yogurt and paneer.
I spread an old newspaper on the kitchen counter top while making this recipe, so after the spills etc....cleanup is easier.
