Ricotta Cheese Tart (Egg-less, Flour-less)

Ricotta Cheese Tart (Egg-less, Flour-less), Ricotta CheesecakeThis Egg-less, Flour-Less Ricotta Cheese Tart has a very very similar taste to Chhena Poda – a desert which is unique to Odisha, India. I was not a very fan of Chhena Poda while growing up but much later in life, I started to enjoy it. For me, Chhena Poda is a much healthier version of all types of Cheese Cakes that we make here. Chhena Poda has no glutton in it and its nothing but Chhena or Homemade Cottage Cheese.., mixed together with sugar, cardamom powder and baked until the top caramelizes into a beautiful brown color. Some prefer the top to be a little crusty.

This Ricotta Cheese Tart is no egg and flour free. Its just pure cheese mixed with sugar and baked for 50 to 60 minutes. That’s it. Such a simple and unpretentious delicacy, no?

A few months ago, I did make the Coconut Cream Cheesecake with White Chocolate Drizzle which had everything that you normally find in a rich cheesecake – eggs, flour etc. But this one is very different. It is a basic gluten-free and vegetarian dessert that you can whip up any time of the day and enjoy without any guilt.

I made my Ras Malai Cream Cake last weekend for the Valentines’s Day baking. Used a yummy Ricotta Filling as the layering. I had some leftover Ricotta Filling and I ended up making this Ricotta Cheese Tart. I served the Ricotta Cheese Tart with fresh blueberries. You can serve it with any fresh fruits of your choice or just drizzle some warm honey on top and this will make a perfectly healthy, gluten-free low-calorie dessert.
