Instructions
 

  • Make the brownie base first- Line a 6 inch springform pan with parchment paper disc. Preheat oven at 160 deg C. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients for the brownie base.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan, it will fill 2 inches of pan, which is perfect because that will be the crust of the cheesecake.Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool once done.
  • Let's make the Cheesecake in the meantime- Whisk the cream cheese till thick and creamy. Whisk the cream separately with 2 tbsp caster Sugar till soft peaks form. Keep both in the fridge till required.
  • In the meantime, melt the dark chocolate in the microwave(short bursts of 30 seconds). Keep aside. Heat 2 tbsp water in a microwave safe bowl, sprinkle gelatin /agar agar on top and let bloom for 2 minutes. Mix well to dissolve.
  • Let both the dark chocolate and agar agar cool a bit. Take out the cream cheese and whipped cream from the fridge.
  • With a light hand fold in the whipped cream into cream cheese, next also fold in the melted chocolate and agar agar. Mix lightly but thoroughly so that the aeration is still there.
  • Pour cheesecake mixture into the pan with brownie crust, cover with cling film and let chill overnight. Unmould carefully. Top with some grated chocolate on the sides.Slice and serve a piece of creamy, cheesy heaven.
