Mango and Vanilla Verrines

The king of fruits is here! Mango season has begun and I'm telling you, you're going to see a lot of mango recipes here! I love strawberries and mangoes. I went crazy during the strawberry season and posted a lot of strawberry recipes, now it's the turn of mangoes!




When I was wondering what dessert to make using mangoes, the layered dessert in this blog attracted me and I decided to make it immediately. 
This is very easy to prepare and tastes yum and looks good too. I was in a hurry, I wanted to finish the whole thing before my son got up so I did not wait for the vanilla custard to set well and besides I was making for family so the clear layers did not matter to me. 
If your particular about the layers, you can add gelatin and let it set (check notes)




Ingredients
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Cornflour - 1 tbsp (or custard powder 1 tbsp)
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup (adjust to taste and sweetness of mangoes)
  • Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
  • Thick Mango pulp - 1/2 cup

Method
1. Mix the corn flour and vanilla extract with 1/4 cup of milk. Mix well without lumps.
2. Heat the remaining 3/4th cup of milk in a saucepan with sugar.



3. Add the corn flour - milk mixture slowly and keep stirring so that no lumps should form.
4. This will thicken soon, keep stirring. Once it's thick and not too runny, take it off flame. If you see the last picture, you can see the sides of the pan, that is the thickened milk.
5. It will further thicken on cooling. 



6. Let it cool completely to room temperature.
7. Meanwhile, cut the mangoes and blend well to get the pulp.
8. To layer, take the serving glass and add 2 tbsp of vanilla custard, then add 2 tbsp of mango pulp and so on until it reaches the brim.



9. Decorate with chocolate chips or cherries or anything of your choice.
10. Let it set in the refrigerator and serve chilled.





Notes
1. You can add 1/2 cup of cream to this too. If adding, add it after adding the cornflour mixture to the milk+sugar mixture and once it thickens remove from flame.
2. You can use ready made custard powder instead of corn flour. If using custard powder, then prepare the custard following the instructions on the box.
3. If you want the custard and mango pulp to set perfectly then add 1 tsp gelatin to 4 tsps of water and bring it to boil. Once it cools add to the vanilla custard mixture. Similarly do for the mango pulp.
4. I used a little less than 1/2 cup sugar, adjust to your preference.
5. Instead of corn flour or custard powder, you can use stabilized whipped heavy cream too.
6. The topping is your choice. You can add cherries or nuts or chocolate curls too.


Until next time,
