Eggless No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

We love cheesecakes in our house, I made this strawberry version to take it to my in laws house and we all enjoyed this flavor. Tastes awesome! Of course, I have used cottage cheese to make this cheesecake, like all my other cheesecakes but you can make it with the traditional cream cheese too.

Method

For the base
1. Grease an 8 inch springorm pan with butter or oil.
Break the biscuits and transfer to a blender and blend till the biscuits are fine.

2. Transfer the biscuits to a bowl. Melt the butter and add it to the biscuits. Mix well. The mixture will resemble wet sand.

3. Transfer this mixture to the greased pan and press around. Leave it in the fridge until we prepare the cheesecake.

For the cheesecake
1. Wash and hull the strawberries and blend about 35 strawberries until it's pureed. The puree should weigh 350 grams.

2. Transfer the strawberries to a saucepan and add add 2 tbsp sugar and cook the puree for a few minutes until it's slightly thickened. Set aside to cool slightly.

3. Sprinkle the gelatin in half cup of water and set aside for 5 minutes. Then heat it up in a microwave for 30 seconds. Leave it to cool down completely. It will become an almost clear solution.

4. In a largest jar of a blender/food processor, add the cottage cheese and condensed milk and blend till smooth.
5. Add the fresh cream and blend again. Add the strawberry puree, vanilla extract and salt and blend again.

6. Pour this mixture in a large bowl. Add the cooled gelatin and mix well. 
7. Bring the springform pan from the fridge and pour this mixture over the biscuit layer and tap lightly.

8. Cover the pan and refrigerate until well set. I left it for 8 hours.

For the glaze
1. Sprinkle 2 tsp gelatin over 3 tbsp of water and set aside for 5 minutes. Then heat it for 30 seconds in a microwave. Let it cool completely.
2. Meanwhile, blend strawberries to get half cup puree. Add the sugar and mix well.

3. Pour the cooled gelatin into the strawberry puree and mix well.
4. Bring the springform pan from the refrigerator and pour the strawberry puree over the set cheesecake.

5. Cover and refrigerate again for about 4 hours or until well set.
6. Once set, remove the springform pan ring gently and enjoy!

Notes
1. Use any biscuit of your choice. I have used marie digestive biscuit.
2. Increase the sugar if your strawberries are not too sweet.
3. If you don't use gelatin, use agar agar. If using agar agar, add the powder to hot water, mix it and then add the agar agar to the strawberry puree as you heat it up with sugar. Bring it to a rolling boil. Agar agar needs a rolling boil to activate. Let it cool to almost room temperature. Keep stirring often so that the agar agar does not form lumps. Please Note - I have never used agar agar, use as per your discretion.

    1. Try googling for recipes that uses hung curd, those recipes most often don't use cream.
