Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown poha
  • 1/2 cup Barnyard millet/Kudiraivali/vrat ka chawal/jhangora
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup cashewnuts
  • 3/4 cup grated jaggery
  • 50 grams Lindt dark chocolate, melted
  • Dark chocolate pearls for garnish
  • For the filling-
  • 1/2 cup curd cheese/Labneh, ( 1/2 cup full fat yogurt strained overnight on a cheesecloth)
  • 150 grams cream cheese
  • 8-10 plump strawberries, pureed
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Recipe Preparation

  1. For the Tart-
  2. Dry roast poha, barnyard millet, almonds and cashew-nuts separately. Let it cool completely.
  3. In a mixer, take poha and barnyard millet together. Powder them both finely. To this fine powder add the nuts and start pulsing.
  4. Halfway through, add the jaggery and melted chocolate and pulse again until the mixture clumps together.
  5. Transfer the mixture to the tart pan with a removable bottom, press it down tightly. cling-wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 2-3 hours.
  6. Prepare the filling-
  7. Take together curd cheese and cream cheese. Whisk until soft and fluffy. To this fluffy cheese, add pureed strawberry. Whisk the mixture smooth
  8. Remove the tart from the refrigerator. Pour the strawberry cheese on top, Tap the pan for the cheese to settle. Cling-wrap and refrigerate for about 4-5 hours for the cheese to set.
  9. I have used only half the filling on the tart/cheese-cake. The remaining, i poured in individual glasses and chilled. Both my kiddos enjoyed them as dessert.
  10. After the said time, remove the tart from the refrigerator. Slowly remove the bottom , the outer ring will slip through your left hand.
  11. Remove the tart on to a serving plate, drizzle chocolate sauce, decorate with strawberry and chocolate pearls. Cut and serve.
My Tip: The filling doesn't have any stabilising agents like gelatin or agar-agar. It will be like a pudding. If you want a set filling use either gelatin or agar-agar as per your choice. The jaggery can also be completed avoided by adding 8-10 dates to the base ingredients.
