This is my first time cheese cake with out baking.Due to lock down i unable to get any cream cheese cake and i tried cheese cake using cottage cheese.It tastes really good and serving chilled enhance the taste.Though its made out of cottage cheese you should be kept it in refrigerator before serving.
I prepared it first time but i must say the pair of mango and cheese really makes the taste divine.
For preparing cream cheese i use full fat milk.
Warm up milk over medium flame for 5 to 7 minutes.Meanwhile take 2 tsp of apple cider vinegar or normal vinegar diluted with 1 tsp of water.Mix it well.
Pour slowly over milk and stirring on medium flame.You can use 2 tsp lime or lemon juice instead of vinegar.When you see curdle ,keep stirring and cook for little more time and off the gas.
Use a muslin cloth and squeeze the cheese and discard all its water.
Take them out in a bowl.You can use the discard water for kneading dough or any cooking purpose with out throwing.
Once you strained cheese,blend it in food processor or any grinder to a smooth creamy texture. Preparing mango puree always use rich and sweet mangoes for better result.Clean mangoes remove skin and pitted.Chop into pieces.In blender pour mango pieces ,lemon juice, sugar to form a fine puree.
Add the cream, mango puree,pinch of salt, curd ,vanilla essence and beat on medium-low speed until combined and creamy.Use a hand blender to prepare the cheese mixture or you can whisk in your hand.The prepared batter should be thick and creamy.
I used digestive biscuit for the base of the cheese cake .You can use any biscuits which are less sweeter.Crush biscuits either in your hand or a rolling pin(can use food processor) until form a fine crumbs.
Use melted unsalted butter to mix with the biscuit mixture.
The mixture should be slightly wet consistency and so the base of each cups would hold the mixture tight. You can also use little water if your mixture is not wet enough..
Transfer 2 tsp of the mixture into each cups and use the bottom of a spoon to press it evenly into the bottom. Refrigerate it for half an hour.
Check to make sure the crust and the sides of the pan are cool . Pour 1 tbsp of the batter over the each cooled crust and spread it into an even layer.
Cover it with a aluminium wrap and refrigerate it in a freezer for 6 to 7 hours.I freeze it in a freezer so when it sit nicely,refrigerate it for 5 to 6 minutes before serving.
For mine i refrigerate it overnight and before serving i chilled it in refrigerator for 5 minutes.
It met in 1 minute so always keep it in refrigerator before serving.
Serve your own toppings or eat as it is.
