Key and important points

So, we list the features and the most important points of cooking cheesecakes.

  1. Cottage cheese. Since this ingredient is the main one, the taste of the finished dish will depend on its qualities. First of all, the curd must be fresh. If you have found a package of old cottage cheese in the refrigerator and decided not to throw it out, but to “put it into action”, then do not expect a miracle. The acid of such a product will have to be muffled with sugar in large quantities, in the end you will get something sweet, but incomprehensible. The second important point is humidity. If the cottage cheese is too wet, then in order to obtain the optimal consistency of the dough you will have to add more dry ingredients, with the result that the finished cheesecakes will be very tough and tasteless. So choose a more dry cottage cheese.Remove excess serum by placing the product in a colander or sieve. Serum will drain, cottage cheese will remain. Fat is not so important, but the fat-free product does not have a pronounced taste and is practically useless. The best option - 6-9% fat.
  2. Eggs. What are they needed for? In this dish, they play the role of a certain link, that is, allow the dough to be uniform and elastic. Many are interested in why cheesecakes are falling apart. So, the reason may lie precisely in an insufficient number of eggs. But you should not add too many eggs, because of this you will have to increase the volume of dry ingredients, which will make the cheesecakes dry. But the flaw is also inappropriate, it will lead to a breakdown. By the way, if you want to cook a low-calorie dish, then add only proteins. But the yolks (if there are more) will give the cheesemakers an appetizing and beautiful yellowish shade.
  3. Dry ingredients. They certainly are part of, because without them the dough will not be full, and cottage cheese will simply burn. You can cook this meal with flour (both wheat and any other you prefer), with semolina, with starch.
  4. Additional Ingredients.They give a special taste to cheesecakes. The filler, by the way, can be not only sweet, but salty and even spicy. We are all used to the fact that cheese cakes are dessert, and so many housewives add components such as honey, berries, jams and jams, fruits, cinnamon, vanillin and even chocolate. But lovers of savory dishes can use garlic, vegetables (best dried), herbs and various spices. This is unusual, but very tasty, try it!
  5. Preparing ingredients and mixing them. Pay special attention to the preparation of cottage cheese. It should be homogeneous, so pass it through a meat grinder, grind it in a blender or rub through a sieve. Some add sour cream. But it is important to take a thick sour cream, remember the threat of stiffness! And some use curd mass. It is also a good option, but in this case there will definitely not be a low-calorie dish. Dry ingredients are best mixed together. Then you can enter the curd. Do this gradually, mix everything thoroughly so that the cheesecakes are tender and without lumps.
  6. Formation. Surprisingly, this process is also important. If cheesecakes are too thin, they will be hard after cooling. Too thick and large cheese cakes will not cook well and can stay raw inside.Optimum thickness - 0,5-1 centimeter centimeter. The value depends on your preference. To make it more convenient, measure the dough with spoons. One cheesecake - one tablespoon of dough. It is most convenient to make flat cakes with your hands, but do not forget to “soil” them in flour, otherwise the dough will stick.
  7. Cooking method. The easiest way is to roast in a pan on each side. Such heat treatment is familiar to many, but can take a lot of time, and also requires increased attention (if you do not follow the cheesecakes, they can burn). It is important to use a good refined oil and cook over low heat. And to make the syrniki tender, cover the frying pan with a lid. If you are an opponent of frying in oil (which is great, since frying is not the most useful way of cooking), then prepare the dish in the oven, it will be equally tasty and more useful. If you have a slow cooker, try cooking cheesecakes in it by selecting the baking mode. Some use a double boiler, but in this case there will be no appetizing crust, and the dish will resemble dumplings.
