I have been really late in posting and thats because we had a round of viral infections and I somehow escaped it(thank goodness)!I haven't really taken any pictures or cooked anything for the blog too since we got back from the vacation too.I'm hoping I can push myself to continue feeding the blog which i oh so love.
This paneer cheesecake in a cup was in my mind for sometime but I really don't like to buy store bought paneer too much because I don't like the texture nor do i have the time and patience to make home made paneer anymore, so the last time we got a pack of paneer I tried this dessert.I really liked the rich creamy taste of it.I wanted to make some fresh fruit jelly but again I didn't get any fruit of my choice so i made the top layer with a packet of jelly crystals.
I'm sure home made paneer and fresh fruit jelly will take this dessert to another level will try it sometime when time permits.
