During the lockdown, I experimented with a lot of recipes. Not everything turned out edible. But some of my experiments were a hit!

I’d like to share with you an easy no-bake recipe for Oreo cheesecake and mango cheesecake. These recipes don’t take long, the ingredients are easy to come by, and your guests will be floored. So it's a win on many levels!

Mango Cheesecake

Marie biscuit - 1 cup finely powdered
Butter - 2 Tbsp
Paneer - 1 packet (200gm)
Fresh cream - 3/4 cup
Condensed milk - 1 cup
Gelatin - 3 tsp
Lime juice - 3 tsp
Mango - 1 large
Water - 1/4 cup


Boil water in a small sauce pan. Stir the gelatin briskly until it dissolves. Set aside.

In a blender/mixie dry grind the Marie biscuit to a fine powder.  Mix 2 tbsp melted butter and layer a buttered pan with the biscuit base.

In a blender, blend the paneer, cream, mango, condensed milk, lime juice, and gelatin mix for at least 1-2 minutes.

Strain the mix through a sieve so that there are no lumps, then pour it onto the prepared pan with the biscuit base.

Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.

Once it’s firm and set, top it with mango jam or fresh mangoes


Oreo Cheesecake with Paneer

1 packet paneer (200 gm)
1 cup fresh cream or 3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 tsp gelatin
1/4 cup boiling hot water
2 packets Oreo
3 tsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 tsp Nutella or some chocolate sauce


Grind 1 1/2 packets of Oreo biscuits in the mixie and mix it with melted butter. Layer your buttered pan.

Boil water and turn it off. Add the gelatin and stir briskly till it dissolves. Set aside.

In another mixie jar, grind the paneer, cream/milk (I tired both, cream makes it more firm, milk gives it a mousse consistency), powdered sugar, vanilla essence, Nutella, and the gelatin mixture. Run the mixie for at least a minute, then strain it into a bowl so that there are no lumps.

Crush the remaining Oreo cookies and mix it into the bowl.

Pour this mixture into your layered pan.

Set in the fridge for 2 hours and enjoy!
