No Bake Mango Cheese Cake (Creamy, Eggless and No Creamcheese)

I always love summer for two reasons, one is getting a break from the daily routine...visiting get together and the other one is the yummy and juicy and tasty mangoes!!!! Well its the only fruit that I have eaten by myself from childhood without my mother's constant reminder (Eat fruits, its good for health!!!!). Now that I have eaten it daily to my heart's content, I thought of making the legendary dessert The Mango Cheesecake
no bake mango cheesecake - no creamcheese
This recipe was first tried by my sister Jayanthi and myself during the end of last summer holidays.We wanted to eat something sweet and weren't in a mood for an icecream or a cake.I was itching my sister to get me cheesecake(it is not easy to get a cheesecake here....).So finally she said let us try one at home and then we found a promising recipe with readily available ingredients (we both like to work with ingredients that are easily available...well who doesn't??? ) and a delicious one too!!!! We got the last mangoes of that season and tried it. I could hardly wait for it set. One hour was my limit then I started hunting towards our fridge with a spoon(just to check whether it is set ofcourse...)
The taste was out of the world. The creamy filling with the biscuit base was heavenly!!! The light and soft mango jelly topping was soooo good...not to mention without any eggs and creamcheese.
Ok..enough story I think, lets get onto the fabulous mango cheesecake recipe....

1) Before adding the third top layer make sure it is set well, otherwise both the layers will merge.
2) In the original recipe I found the top layer less sweet to my liking so I have added (2 tbsp) sugar for that top layer alone. You can skip that if you don't like it or if your mangoes are super sweet.
3) In this recipe I have used homemade paneer, you can use store brought too. Make sure it is fresh.
