In need of a sweet treat for Diwali? Our dear friend, Srikala from Chai This At Home is sharing this incredible tasty treat for No-Bake Parle-G and Masala Chai Cheesecakes. Perfect for your holiday celebration. 

Serving: 12
Preparation time: 1 hour
Cook time: 2 hours 

Ingredients for the crust:
  • 32 Parle-G cookies
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted 
  • A pinch of salt 
  • 2 Tea India Masala Chai Tea Bags 
Instructions for the crust:
  • Steep the Tea India tea bags in 1 cup of hot water for 5 minutes. Discard the bags and let cool completely.
  • In the meantime, process the Parle-G cookies and salt in a blender until fine.
  • Add the butter and 2 tablespoons of cooled chai concentrate to the crumbles and mix gently.
  • Line a muffin tray with liners and press down 1 ½ tablespoons of the mixture in each mold to form a crust. Place in the freezer until the remaining is done.
Ingredients for the cheesecake: 
  • 8 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup organic sugar
  • Seeds from 3 green cardamom pods
  • 2 cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon fennel seeds
  • A pinch each of powdered cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg
  • 12 raspberries (optional)
  • 4 Parle-G cookies

Instructions for the cheesecake:

  • Blend the spices together finely to make a chai masala.
  • In a bowl, add the cream cheese, sugar, and chai masala.
  • Using a hand mixer with whisk attachments combine until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, add the whipping cream and whip until stiff peaks form.
  • Gently add in the cream cheese mixture. Be careful to not mix too much, as you don't want to deflate the air you just incorporated.
  • Take the tray out of the freezer and divide the cheesecake mixture into each mold evenly (~1 ⅓ tablespoons).
  • Freeze again for 2 hours.
  • Add a raspberry on top of each and place in the fridge until ready to serve, if using.
  • Coarsely crumble the cookies on top of the cheesecakes before serving.
