How to make Thandai cheesecake

  1. If you are using fresh rose petals then microwave for 3 minutes, they will turn crisp, crush with hands and set aside.
  2. Take out the seeds from cardamom and make powder out of it. Warm up the 2 tbsp of milk and soak saffron strands .
  3. Sprinkle 1 -2 tbsp flour over the nuts, mix with hands so that flour coats with nuts, and keep aside. Grind the sugar into fine powder, then sieve it. Keep aside. Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt for 3-4 times.
  4. Grease the cupcake liners or line with butter paper. Preheat the oven at 180c for 10 minutes.
  5. In a bowl beat butter/ oil and powdered sugar till they are creamy and fluffy. Add curd, cardamom powder and rose water, beat it for 20 seconds.
  6. Add thandai powder and beat for few seconds more. Add crushed rose petals, sieved flour to the above creamed mixture and fold it gently with a spatula. Add flour coated nuts and saffron infused milk, fold it.
  7. Bake till golden on top.

My Tip:

Later i tried it with adding a few drops of rose essence, the taste was excellent. So you can add 1/8th tsp of rose essence in the batter.
