Mango Mania: Mango Cheesecake

Ever since my last post on mango gojju, not a day has passed without eating mango in some form or the other. And when mango and cheese is combined, it is a killer combo. Layers of fresh ripe mango pulp, cheese and cottage cheese on a bed of crushed biscuits is just what the family needed as a sinful sweet indulgence on a hot Sunday afternoon.

Cheese spread - 1 tub (I used Amul creamy cheese)Cream - 100 gms (I used Amul)
Cottage Cheese - 250gms (I used Amul paneer)
Sugar - Half a cup 
Mango puree from 4 ripe mangoes
Gelatin - 1 tbsp (I used Lion vegetarian gelatin)
Hot Water - 1/4 cup
Digestive biscuits - 2 packets (I used Marie biscuit)
Unsalted butter, melted - 75 gm 

Crush the biscuits in a food processor to form a coarse powder. Add the melted butter and mix well. Press into a spring form pan or a loose bottom dish, or individual glasses. Refrigerate till rest of the cheesecake is ready. 

Blend the mango pulp with sugar and set aside. Add gelatin to hot water till completely dissolved. Add this to the mango puree and stir well. 

Blend together the cheese spread, cottage cheese and cream. To this cheese mixture, add half the mango pulp and beat till well incorporated. 

Pour the mango-cheese mixture over the biscuit layer as a second layer and refrigerate for a about 2 hours. As a third layer, pour the mango pulp gently over the mango-cheese ensuring the layers do not get mixed. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.
