  10. Gently fold them together. Only mix until just combined, being careful not to over mix.
  11. Spread evenly into the pan and bake for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  12. Remove from the pan after a few minutes and let cool on a wire rack.
  13. Strawberry Curd-
  14. While the base is being baked, Combine strawberries with water and cook until soft.
  15. Blend when cooled, add sugar in the same food processor and whizz until very smooth.
  16. Whisk together milk and cornstarch in a small bowl and add to strawberry mixture.
  17. Puree until mixture is as smooth as possible, scraping down the sides of the bowl occasionally.
  18. Strain mixture into a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until it comes just to a boil. Stir very frequently.
  19. Cook for about a minute, stirring constantly, until somewhat thickened.
  20. Strain again into a heatproof container and let cool to room temperature.
  21. Store in the refrigerator until cold before serving.
  22. Saffron Cashew Ganache-
  23. Soak Saffron in milk.
  24. Mix together Saffron and cream and heat it in thick pan until it shows tiny bubbles on sides.
  25. Pour it over chopped chocolate and whisk until blended well.

  30. Assembling-
  31. Using cake crumbs mixed with 2 tablespoons melted butter make the base in tart pan by pressing down and refrigerate for half an hour.
  32. Pour on to it the cooled strawberry curd and let it set for another hour in refrigerator.
  33. Now is the time to go creative.
  34. Use both the ganache as you would like the end result to be.
  35. I used 1/4 base area to cover with dark chocolate ganache and rest with saffron cashew ganache.
  36. Then did free hand painting.

My Tip:

Cashew paste can be made by soaking cashews in warm water for 2 hours. Purée the cashews to a smooth paste. Chilling time included in preparation time
