Chenna Poda~~IC Challenge

Chenna poda, an incredible Indian cheesecake from Orissa, actually we used to make many sweets like rasogollas,pedas etc from chenna aka paneer a well known Indian cheese..This irresistible cheesecake from Orissa is also prepared from homemade freshly prepared paneer along with simple ingredients..Eventhough this cake is quite famous in Orissa, its totally new for me, after missing last month's challenge coz of my surgery i was waiting eagerly for this month's challenge, when Srivalli announced Indian Cooking Challenge with this chenna poda as this month's challenge i was really excited and try out few days back this super addictive Indian cheesecake..Its turned out super prefect with a wonderful super moist texture as this recipe is prepared completely with paneer along with small quantity of rava,sugar, cashews and raisins..Thanks to Srivalli for this wonderful challenge, i simply enjoyed it..I choosed Shibani's version which sounds super easy for me also i used my silicon individual muffin mould for making this cheesecake..


500grms Fresh Paneer
1/4cup Rava
1cup Sugar
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
2tbsp Raisins
Few cashew nuts
Caramel syrup as per need

In a large bowl, mash the fresh paneer cheese, add the rava,sugar,cardamom powder, raisins and cashew nuts to the cheese and mix it well using hands..

Pour the caramel syrup as per need to the mould, then pour the cheese mixture to the mouldcover the mould with aluminium foil,make some slits on the foil with a knife and bake for 30minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Cool it completely and serve it..This chenna poda stays prefect for a week in fridge..
