Mango Cheesecake in any Season

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Our Managing Editor, Anumita, shares the recipe of cheesecake, which does not involve any baking. An interesting addition to the Christmas party spread, in the weekly column, exclusively in Different Truths.

Mango is a , but available in most parts of the world. Its fragrance and sweet tangy flavor have earned much love from most fruit lovers. In the culinary society, mango has been used to make starters, snacks, main course, and desserts.

Being a Bengali, my sweet tooth is the strongest. Everything has a potential for dessert, well, most of them. Although I love to bake but would enjoy a dessert which does not have much cooking and baking involved.

I found the best of two worlds, my love for mango and no baking method at a friend’s dinner party. She had prepared a mango cheesecake, which involved no baking.

After getting the procedure from her I dared to attempt one at home.

It turned out beautiful and delicious.

Would like to share it with you all, and hope that you will make one and enjoy it with your loved ones.
