This is news for weight watchers ,and sugar watchers.Yet another nature’s blessing!
Yes ..this is made with pure palm sugar (Panagalkandu).Palm sugar can be consumed by all ages because of it’s low Glycemic Index (GI).
Substituting cane sugar with palm sugar will help
1. To reduce weight.
2. Help prevent or postpone onset of diabetes.It does not raise blood sugar level
after consumption,instead it absorbs slowly ,to manage diabetes.
3. Palm sugar does not have the after bad taste like Stevia,and can be used in
tea,coffee,or in any sweet dishes .
Moving on to the recipe i would like to give variations for the inclusion in the cheese.
You could use cream cheese or cottage cheese(paneer).
If you are using cottage cheese use the blender for mixing to get a smooth texture.
200 gm cream cheese
2 eggs (separate yolks and whites)
20 gm butter
75 gm cream
20 gm sugar
zest of 1 lemon
35 gm sugar to beat with the egg whites separately
1 tblsp.of lemon juice
2.5 tblsp + 1 tsp cornflour
Melt the butter and the cream in a bain-marie (double boiler) till the butter is melted
and set aside.
Cream the cheese ,egg yolks,and the 20 gm sugar together till well blended.
Add the lemon juice.Mix in the melted cream-butter.
Beat the egg whites till lightly stiff (not very stiff),add in the 35 gm sugar and beat
lightly for a minute and mix into the cheese mixture.
Fold in the flour and mix.
Grease a springform pan ,and line with parchment paper.
Cover the bottom of the pan with aluminium foil (as you have to bake in a water bath)
Pour the prepared mixture,and bake for 35-40 minutes (160 degrees).
After 35 minutes lower the temperature to 150 degrees and bake for another 7 minutes.
Let it stand in the oven for 5 minutes (keep the door lightly open ).
Remove from oven .Use any topping you like.
Well ,i used a mulberry preserve as topping.(shown in photo)
