Dish: Individual Eggless Mango Cheesecake without Gelatin based on Nags recipe @ Edible Garden
Day 3 of BM# 29 and today I have made a delicious No-Bake Eggless Mango Cheesecake that is to die for. I actually made it 3 times to get the measurement of agar-agar (Chinagrass) right (and to gobble it down of course). Nags original recipe used gelatin and the first time I tried I added the same quantity of agar and the result was rubbery mango jelly. As I said it took me two more attempts to get the right quantity for soft and smooth mango layer.
This dessert is a crowd pleaser. I made it for my blog buddies and also for another get-together party. This is one recipe that looks sophisticated, but it takes very little time to put together.
Cheesecake can be made in a springform pan, but I prefer the individual servings in cute little glasses, so everyone gets to see how beautiful the dessert looks.
For the crumb layer, I’ve used graham cracker crumbs, but any good quality digestive biscuits can be used. Also I used store bought Kesar Mango pulp that is already sweetened, but you can also use pureed fresh/ frozen mangoes. Amount of sugar used depends entirely on personal preference and the sweetness of the mango puree used.
