MANgo vanilla cheese cake

20140605-100816 pm-79696988.jpgAfter starting to blog, i promised myself that everything i plate up should be masterchef class. So everytime i decide to make something, i visualise the whole desert in my mind including even the plating. So before the mango season ends, i wanted to make one more cheese cake. And i wanted it to look spectacular along with it tasting good.

So i decided to make a layered Mango and vanilla cheese cake.

Ingredients
Crust
100gms – Digestive biscuits
2tbsps – Melted butter

Cream cheese filling
1 cup – Hung curd
1 cup – Heavy cream
2 tbsp – Unflavoured Gelatin
5 tbsp – hot water
1 cup – Sugar
1/2 cup – Mango pulp
1 no. – Vanilla bean

Method crust
Prepare a 9″ springform by lining the bottom of the pan with grease proof paper. I love the wrinkles that i get because of the paper and hence i use it on the side walls too. But thats optional.
In a mixie powder the biscuit. Remove it into a bowl. Gradually add the melted butter . And mix it with your hands so that the butter coats the biscuit well. The mixture has to be seperate and not too sticky. Almost like bread crumbs.
Now put the mixture into the bottom of the pan and spread it evenly. Now using a measuring cup press down the crumbs so that the crumb necomes the base. Refrigerate it till you prepare your cheese mixture.

Plate it up generously with mango bits, cherries, choco chips, mint leaves, cream cheese icing and anything that you think will go with mango.

PS: You can add small bits of mango into the cream cheese mixture before pouring it into the springform.

Cream cheese icing: Keep some hung curd aside while using it for the cake. Blend this with icing sugar or normal sugar and some mango bits to make a smooth paste.Fill it into a piping bag and refrigerate till you get everything else ready to plate up.
