- 125g (1/2 cup) jaggery

- 100ml heavy / whippin cream
- 2 eggs
- 20g cornstarch
- 2 tsp lemon juice

Method and Tips:

❕This recipe will make one 8inch cheesecake❕

- Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature, so that the ingredients combine better
- The most common reason of the cheesecake sinking after baking, is over mixing the batter. Just mix everything till it has come together
- To make the crust, mix melted butter and biscuits and press down on the pan with the bottom of a glass/bowl. Make this first so you can let it chill in the fridge
- Preheat the oven to 180C
- For the batter, start by whisking the cream cheese till smooth. Add the ingredients in the order mentioned above, whisking briefly now and then
- You can add the heavy cream with and without whisking it before hand
- Cover the base of the tin with foil. Place it in a baking tray and fill the baking tray with boiling water. Trust me this helps in evenly baking the cheesecake, which prevents cracking, don’t skip it
- Bake for ~45-50 mins
- Okay lastly, how to know if your cheesecake is done? The outer part should look a little puffed and set, the centre should be just wobbly. If the centre if very wobbly, as if it’s not set yet, let it bake more. The moment you notice cracks, you know it’s time to take it out
- Let the cheesecake get to room temperature, and refrigerate it for atleast 4-5 hours!
