The sight…smell and sound of Alphonso mangoes are very familiar and nostalgic that it keeps all the childhood memories alive. It’s one of the gorgeous fruit and oh so versatile. Experimenting with different dessert combinations using mangoes excites me. This dessert I had made last year as part of my routine experiments. It was so yum and delicious that hubby dear and my younger daughter finished it off in no time. I hardly got time to style and click pics leave alone tasting. Somehow managed it to do.
Recipe of Mango mousse-
2 cups fresh mango puree
½ cup milk
½ tbsp. gelatin
1 cup whipped cream
½ tsp vanilla essence (optional)
1) Mix the mango puree and milk and keep it aside.
2) Stir in vanilla essence at this point (if you are using).
3) Add 1 tbsp. water to set gelatin and heat it in a microwave or double bowl.
4) Strain and add the dissolved gelatin in it.
5) Add the whipped cream and blend it with a beater till it gets a smooth consistency.

Recipe of White chocolate Ganache
200ml fresh cream
420g white chocolate, finely chopped.
1)Place the chopped white chocolate into a medium size microwave safe mixing bowl. Set aside while you heat the cream.
2)Heat the cream in a small saucepan until just boiling.
3)Pour the cream over the chocolate and leave to stand for two minutes. This will give the chocolate time to soften.
4)Stir the ganache until smooth. If all the white chocolate has not melted then place the bowl in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds. 5)Remove and stir until smooth.
