LEMON πŸ‹SANDESH BARFI ~ CHEESECAKE TRIANGLES I wanted to do a for the Indian and Bengali sweet made with fresh paneer is probably the closest to the Western Cheesecake.
Many Indian desserts are fried foods made with sugar, milk or condensed milk and ingredients and types of dessert vary by region. In the eastern part of India, for example, most desserts are based on milk products. Many are flavored with almonds and pistachios, spiced with aromatic spices like cardamon, cloves and nutmeg and decorated with nuts like almonds, cashew, pistachios etc.
Enjoy my take on this fusion dessert inspired from various blogs I am addicted to here on IG.
