Are your kids a Mango lover? Yes, mine is extremely crazy over mangoes. She eagerly awaits for this season and to relish this exotic fruit. In a day, 2-3 mangoes are easy eaten and at the end of the day, a small voice occurs- “Mamma, you said will give a mango before sleeping” and me- “Is it, when did I say this?” hehe. The best part is to see them relish a mango …. how sweetly they eat it and in no time:)
In this post, we have 2 lovely ladies who have shared delicious ‘Mango Dessert Recipes’ with us… Take a look at the two quick & easy kid- friendly recipes –
1. Stuffed Mango Kulfi
Cook: 40 mins
Yields: 6-8 nos Servings
- Milk (full cream) – 1.25 lts/ 5 cups
- Mangoes – 6-8 nos
- Sugar – 70gms/ 1/3 rd cup
- A handful Pistachios
To make kulfi stuffing –
Heat milk and reduce it till becomes 1/3rd
Add sugar, stir and cool completely. Add pistachios to it
Now, we need to remove the seed of the mango while keeping the entire shape of the mango intact.
Gently squeeze the mango (unpeeled) …. for that cut off the mango by slicing the top/head of the mango.
Retain this cap. Now using a sharp kitchen knife loosen the pulp around the mango seed.
Firmly, hold the seed and rotate it to loosen it further. Now pull it out with your hands/ tongs. Place the mango with skin on in a small cup so it stands upright.
Remove any pulp from the seed and add it back to the empty mango shell.
Fill this cavity of the mango shell with the kulfi stuffing. Put the mango cap back on it and freeze it.
Once frozen, remove and peel the mango and then slice and serve.
