A few weeks ago for Diwali I decided to try to make a modern dessert with an indian flare!

So after a lot of though I decided with Mango and Pistachio cheesecake, with a digestive crust.

ingredients:

Crust:

200g Digestive Biscuits

150g Butter

Filling:

800g Cream Cheese

190g Caster Sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp saffron extract

1tsp pistachio extract

4 eggs

1/2 tin of mangos sliced into smaller pieces

1/2 tin of mango pulp

a few strips of dried mango

3 tbps of ground pistachios

 

Crust:

Crumble down the digestive biscuit in a food processor so it looks like bread crumbs.
