Mango Mousse


I am a sweet lover, but then I also think I love spicy and savoury food, if I tell this to my family they reply, just say you are greedy :-)
And my family knows if I am giving a dinner party , and while planning the menu, it is the desserts which I am going to give will be the list I am making first.
So this is one of the dessert I gave for my guest for my last party.

Originally it was a cake dessert but I just took the recipe for the mousse and I made it into a glass dessert than a cake.

It was not really thinck so i think next time I might add a bit more gelatine.
But the taste was just so good, it is the first time I buy tined mango pulp and they are really good. Next time when I go to the Indian store I am gonna stack up few tinns for summer dessert.

The original recipe is from Gourment Recipes and you will fing it here

Mango mousse:

1 cup mango puree (from fresh or canned mangoes),
3 tbsp sugar (or more depending of mango sweetness),
1 tsp gelatin, (I will add next time a little bit more)
250 ml heavy cream,
pinch of cream of tartar,
1 tsp lime juice,
1 egg white.

Soak gelatin in 2 tbsp of water and set aside.

Whip egg white with cream of tartar and 1 tbsp of sugar to soft peaks.In a other bowl whip cream with remaining sugar until soft peaks.
Heat gelatin in microwave for 20 seconds and stir well until completely dissolved, then add gelatin to the mango puree.

Add whipped egg white and lime juice, stir gentle, then add whipped cream and stir again, pour into individual glasses .
I kept in the fridge for a night.

sra said...

It looks unusual - all the mango mousses I've seen so far are YELLOW - that means really yellow! :) I'm tempted to make this but I don't know if I'll find plain gelatin here, I prob will, but before that, i guess I could put some other jelly powder or the other :)

Happy Cook said...

Sra i think the colour gets lighter because of the cream and the eggs.

Priya said...
