Gulab Jamun Cheesecake

 

Most delicious of flavours combination, an ultra creamy, smooth and chilled baked cheesecake is exactly what hot summer days call for.
This is a fusion cheesecake in which I have tried to make the filling by mixing the two most loved flavours from two different cuisines;  one is the NewYork cheesecake and the second is the most favourite sweet of all Indians, the Gulab Jamun. Both the desserts are milk based and have melt in mouth consistency.
In fact, when u cut the cheesecake, the gulab jamuns come as a surprise to you

And these moist, creamy and luscious 2 fillings rest on a biscuit crust and everything come together in a snap
This preparation of mine is a baked one. I have baked this cheesecake with water bath technique and so that it is creamy n moist. This baked version can be refrigerated for 4 to 5 days without spoiling the flavours. You can bake this cheesecake one day ahead when your guests are coming
