Ingredients

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a standard size 12 cup muffin tin with foil cup liners; spray with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, mix crushed cookies and 2 tablespoons of the melted butter until all crumbs are moist. Evenly divide into muffins tins. Press crumbs until firm. A shot glass

works well. Bake for 5 minutes or until just set. Remove and evenly divide crystallized ginger on top of baked crust. Set aside to cool. Leave oven on.

Meanwhile, in a blender, put 1/3 cup mango, yogurt, 1 tablespoon honey, cardamom, and rum extract then process until smooth. In a medium bowl, beat the sugar and cream cheese at medium speed until creamy. Stir in mango-yogurt smoothie mixture (lassi), then add the eggs and beat until smooth.

Pour cheesecake batter into the baking cups, filling them 3/4 full. Refrigerate any leftover batter.

Bake the cheesecakes for 15 minutes, or until they jiggle slightly in the center. Remove from the oven and transfer to the freezer for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, chop remaining 1 cup of mango to the size of raisins. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of butter. Stir in cinnamon and curry powder and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add chopped mango, 2 tablespoons of honey, lime juice, raisins and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil for 1 minute then reduce heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool until cheesecakes are ready.

Once cheesecakes are cooled, remove the metal liners carefully. Serve 2 cheesecakes per plate. Garnish each cake with warm mango-raisin chutney and fresh mint on the side.
