Mango Fool

I really missed the happenings in the blogosphere ,the last few days. My laptop crashed and the kids didn't let me use their desktop much. Only then I realized ,how much I love my own computer ! Anyways glad to be back in business.

Mango Fool




How was your week ? Started baking all the goodies for Christmas? Is your tree up and lights on ? Usually I bake some cookies and Kerala Plum cake and share it with friends, during this time of the year. I have started the preparations and by next week, I'll be able to share some of them with you all. Meanwhile have a look at all the great cookies we have already posted on Collaborative Curry by clicking here.

Mango Fool


The kids are all excited about the big holiday season and my daughter will have an instrumental concert in her class coming week, how exciting. The lil imp is participating in his first ever concert on Monday ! Can't wait to hear him and his friends. Even after repeated requests from us and his big sister he wouldn't sing it for us, saying "the song is only for the concert"

Mango Fool


Coming to today's recipe: one of the simplest dessert ever, the irresistible combo of mango and cardamom, do I need to say more ? Mangoes are my most favorite fruits and this is what I would do when they are not in season, get a can and make some mango fool or some other dessert that calls for mango pulp. Here is the recipe for a simple mango fool and I hope you'll enjoy this little sunshine in winter !

I'm so happy to share this news: My Whole wheat Apple muffins won CED-Desserts-Apple, a great event hosted by Nayna of Simply food ,a brain child of Raven from Cookeatdelicious.com. I won this lovely cookbook.You should be able to see some recipes from this real soon ! Have a great weekend folks !



Ingredients:

Mango pulp- 2 cups
Heavy cream- 1 cup
Confectioner's sugar- 3-4 Tbsp/to your taste
Lemon zest- 1/4tsp
Cardamom powdered- 1/2 tsp

Method:

1.Mix the mango pulp with the lemon zest and cardamom. Keep aside.
2.In a chilled mixing bowl, beat the cream.When the soft peaks start to form, add the confectioner's sugar/powdered sugar and beat well until stiff peaks are formed.
3.Fold into the mango pulp mixture.You could decide how much you should fold in. I love to see the white streaks of cream in it :-)
4.Chill and serve with some mango slices, if they are in season or with any dried fruits or nuts of your choice.

Notes:

1.The sweetness of the above recipe is not on the higher side.You could add more sugar if you like that.
2.This recipe serves 4 to 5.
