To make the mango curd: Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Add the mango puree, lemon juice, sugar and flour, and mix to combine.

Pour over the cooled biscuit base. Bake for 25 minutes until the top has only a very slight bit of movement left in the middle, it should have some slight bubbles and browning to the top.
