A Ginger cookie makes a wonderful base for my creamy cheesecake – it’s enhanced with Jalebi and then steam cooked in my Instant pot
When cooled it’s drizzled with jam and topped with more Jalebis, nuts and edible silver sheets.

Yep, you heard me right – Jalebi & Cheesecake in one delicious cake. I made my own Jalebis – but you can also just buy them! I made this in my Instant Pot, but you can also cook this in your oven over a water bath. If you wish to make a no bake version, you can do that as well.
