In summer, there are mangoes and mangoes everywhere . Everyone is just mad on mangoes these days , making mango cakes, mango ice creams, mango pudding, mango jelly and many more in the row. I am also one of them😊 So after trying my hands on mango jelly and ice cream , now I thought of trying mango cheese cake for first time. But its richness of calories made me always hesitate to try , though I am too fond of trying healthy and guilt free cooking, so came up with a healthy substitute of fatty cheese and cream used in this cake. Accidentally or you can say luckily my 1 1/2 lt of milk got cuddled and hence I got a golden chance for my experiment. As I was not so sure for the perfect end result so missed to click all steps pics but to my surprise, the final outcome is just wow and of course a guilt free dessert.
Recipe is given below, hope you all will definitely like it.
LOW FAT VEG MANGO CHEESE CAKE
1 1/2 lt milk
1 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar
1 1/3 cup mango puree
2 tbsp sugar, you can add more
5 gm agar agar( China grass)
3/4 cup water
12-15 any sweet biscuit, I used 4 belvita biscuits
1 tsp ghee or butter
First of all boil milk, then add lemon juice or vinegar , little by little till it get cuddle. Then strain it in a muslin or any fine cotton cloth. Wash it under tap water to remove sourness of vinegar or lemon from cheese. Then squeeze it well and hang some where for at least 1 hr to drain excess water in it. Now your cheese is ready to use.
Soak agar agar strips in water for at least 20 mins. Then take 3/4 cup of water in a pan, add soaked agar agar and boil. After boiling, lower the flame and let it simmer till agar agar get completely dissolved in water. In meanwhile take cheese in mixer and churn till smooth, both not too much. Now add 1 cup mango pulp and sugar in it and churn again for 2-3 pulses only. Now pour it in a bowl.
Now make powder of biscuits in a mixer and add ghee or butter in it. Take a greased pan of your choice, spread this biscuit ghee mixture in it evenly and press with a spatula to get a firm base.
Now in cheese mango mixture add agar agar liquid, little more than half the quantity. Mix well and pour it on biscuit base evenly. Tap the pan to remove any air bubble formed . Keep the pan in freezer for 10 mins. Now take 1/3 cup of mango puree and add rest of agar agar liquid and mix well. Now take out the pan from freezer and pour this mango puree all over it evenly and tap the pan to get smooth surface. Now keep the pan in refrigerator overnight. For demolding , run a clean knife along its sides so that it leave the edges of pan then carefully invert it on a chilled plate and then invert it once again on serving plate, and done.
Be careful with agar agar, as it can set at room temp too. So when we have to wait for next step then keep agar agar mixture bowl in boiling hot water to avoid its jelly formation. If you want good sweet dessert then you can add more sugar to cheese mixture and also some sugar can be added in upper mango mixture too.
This is so creamy and scrumptious desserts that can make you star of any party you are hosting. Just try once you will never regret. Hope you all will definitely give it a try and pour your queries, comments and suggestions ,they meant a lot to me.
