I promised myself sometime back that I’d actually use the recipe books I have. Well, I did make this dessert from Sanjeev Kumar’s book quite a while back, and the people I served it to said, “yummm, and “I’m impressed!” and “this is sinful”, etc, but I really easy-mango-dessertwasn’t very convinced myself. Well for one, I’m not much of a fan of condensed milk. I find the taste absolutely cloying. There was a little granular texture that I didn’t care for, but that’s possibly because the mango pulp I used was frozen for over a month. It certainly got finished, though my 5 year old who has a real sweet tooth couldn’t be persuaded beyond 3 bites.

Would I try it again? Yes, once more. It was super simple and quick. It had no eggs. I loved the way it unmoulded so perfectly. It looked fabulous. I want to see if the texture is improved with fresher pulp. For that I’ll have to wait for summer again I guess.

Here goes. This is my version. His had some oranges and sweet limes to garnish which I didn’t have at home.

Ingredients
1 tin (400 grams) Condensed Milk
1 cup thick yogurt
1/2 cup mango pulp [ I used 1 full cup ]
1/2 cup chopped mango to garnish

Preparation
Mix together the condensed milk, yogurt, mango pulp and milk and mix well.

Transfer to a stainless steel vessel. Cover with aluminum foil. Use a steamer if you have one of course.

Heat sufficient water in a larger vessel. Put the smaller bowl of condensed milk mixture in it, cover with a lid big enough to cover the bigger bowl properly, and steam for 25 minutes.

Cool and place in the refrigerator to set.

Before serving, unmould onto a serving plate and garnish with mango chunks, and a sprig of fresh mint if you have some.
