Mango Cheese Cake

The best part about Summer for me has to be undoubtedly MANGOES!! If some could eat icecream morning, noon and night, ;-) my food of choice would be mangoes - breakfast, lunch and dinner!!

I have been pretty darned stressed with the PhD and making (and then eating them) desserts is my de-stressor! So I tried a couple of mango recipes and here is the first. It is simple, takes about an hour to prepare and an hour to bake and a recipe that can't fail!

To make Mango cheese cake you need:
  • 200 gms paneer (cottage cheese or you can use cream cheese if you find it!)
  • 2 medium sized juicy mangoes
  • 1 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 packet digestive biscuits
  • Butter (to make dough for base)
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 4 eggs


HOW?
  • Preheat the oven to 150 degrees celsius.
  • Crush the digestive biscuits in a bowl, you should have about 2 cups, add butter and make dough and spread evenly in the tart tin. Make sure you don't leave any gaps in the base. Seal with saline wrap and freeze till needed.
  • Cut the paneer and mango into pieces and blend till you get a smooth paste.
  • Beat the eggs and the sugar till fluffy and mix together with the mango-paneer paste.
  • Pour over digestive biscuit base and place tart tin in a bigger container with a little water (helps the cheese cake stay humid).
  • Put the ensemble in the oven for 50-60 minutes depending on your oven. When the mango cheese part begins to brown slightly, your cheese cake is done. Take it out of the oven and let it cool to room temperature. Serve cold.
Try it and tell me how it turned out!
Bon Appetit!
