Mango Cheese cake - OPOS

I recently came across a facebook group called OPOS Support Group, OPOS - One Pot One Shot. Opos is copyrighted by Mr. Rama Krishnan fondly called Ramki. After knowing about OPOS, cooking is a breeze.. that too in summer how much time we spend in hot is like a hell. It saves so much time and gives lot of confidence.
I saw many successful posts of bhapa doi / cheese cake in the group. There is OPOS chef video also for that. Link here.
Since it is mango season, I thought of making mango cheese cake just following bhapa doi recipe with the addition of mango pulp.
I never knew with these minimal ingredients, that too which is easily available at home, we can create this yummy dessert.
  • Hung curd – 1 Cup
  • Sweetened condensed milk – 1 cup
  • Mango pulp – 1 cup
  • Butter / ghee – ½ tsp for greasing the pan.
  • Nuts – optional for garnish.
Grease a bowl with butter / ghee which can sit comfortably inside ur pressure cooker. 

Drain the water in the curd, hang it in muslin cloth for 10 mins and squeeze the extra water to get thick curd. You can also use the store bought thick yogurt and skip this step.

Prepare the mango pulp. Sweet mango is preferred J
Mix hung curd, condensed milk, and mango pulp well.

Transfer the mixture into greased bowl.
Add about 1.5 – 2 cups of water in the cooker.

2L pressure cooker is the standard pressure cooker used in all OPOS dishes. Here I have used 3L, as I don’t have 2L with me.  Since the 3L is taller cooker, I kept another small vessel inside, and kept the bowl with the cheese cake mixture on top, so I can take this bowl easily out when it is done;  Also it avoids much water getting into the cake mixture.  Close the bowl with a small plate to avoid water going inside the mixture. Even if there is water it can be easily taken out. So chill.

Now close the cooker, and put the whistle and cook for about 15 mins in medium heat. The flame should cover half of the cooker bottom.

It will get around 3 whistles in 15 mins. You need not count the whistles.   After 15 mins, Switch off the stove, let the pressure settle down. But if you don’t get whistle at all in 15 mins, then there is some problem, maybe there is no enough heat or water, or some issue with the cooker. Fix it.
Open the cooker and just insert a knife in the center. The knife should come out clean. If it is sticky, then cook for another 5 mins.

Once the bowl is cool enough to handle, Cover it with a big plate and invert the bowl to transfer the cake to the bowl.  Do this carefully since it just slides of so easily, it is very soft.
Garnish with nuts /chopped mangoes. Chill and serve.
