Mango is a delicious tropical fruit & enriched with vitamin C. Even more it is not very expensive. In Sri Lanka most of the houses have a mango tree in the garden,and trees are full of Mangoes during the season. So I think this recipe would be a good idea specially during the season.
Anyway I got this idea of making Mango Mousse after seen the recipe shared by Kitchen Mania. She has described it in step by step photos, So it was very easy to make this dessert.
I did few alterations for the recipe .
Here is my version.
Mango puree - 2 cups
Unflavored Gelatin -1 tbs (instead of Mango Puree & Gelatin, you can use a packet of instant Mango Pudding too )
Heavy cream - 1 cup (If you don’t have Heavy Cream, check here for how to make it at home,I used homemade substitiute for this recipe)
Eggs -2 egg whites
Powdered sugar - 1.5 cup (If you use instant Mango Pudding,don't use powdered sugar,it will be so sweetish)
Water - 1/ cup
some fruits for garnishing
Boil water. Dissolve gelatin in ½ cup of water.
Mix 1 cup of sugar in mango puree.(Change the qty of sugar if you don’t like much sweetish dessert.I didn’t use sugar because mango itself has a good taste)
Mix dissolved gelatin in mango puree, keep aside.(instead you can use an instant mango pudding & make according to the packet instructions)
Now whisk egg whites until it forms foams.
Dissolve remaining sugar in heavy cream.
Add heavy cream mixture slowly to the whisked egg whites & mix well. Or beat for few minutes under low speed.
Add this mixture slowly to the mango puree which we kept aside.
Now add the mix to a mould or a bowl & keep refrigerated for about 3-4 hours or until it get set.
Now it is ready after few hours.Garnish with fruits when it is in the mould.
Or remove from the mould & garnish
Serve & enjoy!!
