For Sweet Paste
Add butter and sugar and flour in the mixing bowl and mix well. Add milk to the above mixture and mix lightly - do not over mix. The dough should remain crumbly with large clumps. Allow sweet paste to set and refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Take the dough out of the fridge and let it sit on the counter for a few minutes to soften slightly for easy rolling. Now roll out the dough to 1/4th inch thickness and use the cutter to cut the dough. Use the tart shell to shape it. Bake it for 15 minutes and then transfer the crusty shell to a wire rack.

For Cheesecake
Mix the cream cheese and sugar well. Add hung curd to the paste. Now add melted chocolate to the paste. Finally add flour to the paste and mix well. Put 100 grams of cheesecake batter to the tart shell and bake it.

For Fudge
Take dark chocolate and add sugar water, liquid glucose and butter in it and mix well. Keep it aside to cool and then add egg replacer to it. Now pour the fudge batter in the tart shell and place the baked cheesecake above it and bake for 10 minutes at 170 degree. Finally let the tart cool down.

For Blueberry Mousse
Mix fresh blueberries and fresh cream. You can also use blueberry compote instead of fresh blueberries. Mix well and pour the mixture into a piping bag. Pipe droplets onto the fudge and cover the entire tart with the blueberry mousse. Gently place a white chocolate ring on top of the tart and garnish with fresh blueberries.
