Quick Strawberry Cheesecake

This is one of those quick , no - fuss, simple recipes that never lets you down. Each spoonful of this is sheer pleasure. I think its ideal for entertaining as it can be made ahead of time and does look cute. It does not contain eggs which practically makes it a "no bake cheesecake" and who doesn't love that !

Since strawberries are in season now , do try this recipe, or substitute it with your favourite berry .

Ingredients :

6 strawberries
12 oz. softened cream cheese, 1 1/2 (8-ounce) bricks
2/3 C sour cream
1 C confectioners'/powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
12 individual mini gram cracker crusts.


Hull and coarsely chop 6 medium sized berries and place in food processor. Add cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, vanilla extract and process until smooth. Refrigerate the mixture for an hour or overnight. Spoon the cheese mixture in the pie tins. Garnish cheesecakes with slices of remaining berries. Serve chilled.

Kiwi Mutton

During our last visit to the grocery store we brought home the toughest meat (unintentionally) , wont cook even after being pressure cooked for nearly 7-8 whistles , I had few kiwis waiting to be eaten and I came across this useful tip... so presenting Kiwi Mutton my friends. This recipe is my contribution to the SOS Slow Cooker Event Hosted by me:)

I added some olive oil, onions, 2 pods of green cardamom , 1" piece of cinnamon, the meat, ginger paste, garlic paste, red chili powder, turmeric powder, dhania powder, salt, crushed tomato, and finally a peeled n very finely chopped kiwi , all in the crock pot ,and all at room temperature and cooked it on high for 3hrs ....yep...I also sprinkled some garam masala powder and added a big hand full of fresh coriander and mint half an hour before turning the crock pot off.

It was delicious and looked cute. The black seeds from the kiwi gave it kinda like a polka dot look. I had used papaya as a tenderiser for meat before, but tried the kiwi for the first time. It works ! and just like the papaya it does not make the mutton taste sweet... Thanks for sharing the info Mona. Enjoy !
