- SUMMER MANGO PUDDING
In a blender add 2 cups of ripe mangoes along with 1/2 cup milk and make a smooth puree. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Place 5gms agar-agar along with water on low heat and keep stirring till the agar-agar is completely dissolved. Bring 1/2 cup milk to a boil along with ¼ cup sugar and a pinch of cardamom powder. Simmer on low flame for 3-4 minutes. Add the agar-agar mixture and keep stirring on low flame for 4-5 minutes. Turn off heat and allow cooling. Add the mango puree to the agar-agar mixture and mix well. Pour the mixture into serving bowls. Allow to sit at room temperature and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for at least 3 to 4 hours. Garnish with mango pieces and serve chilled.
- MANGO POPSICLES
Take 1 cup ripe chopped mangoes, preferably Alphonso variety in a blender. Add ¼ cup milk and ½ cup sugar. Puree the mixture until you get a smooth paste. Pour this mixture into Popsicle moulds and cover them with clean wrap. Arrange the moulds in a freezer and freeze until firm. An alternative to Popsicle moulds are paper cups. Pour the mixture into small paper cups and let them set in the freezer. When they are set halfway, insert ice cream sticks and then let it freeze until firm. Another alternative is the usage of ice cube trays. Although you would get small size popsicles, still it is the best way to beat the heat. Once the popsicles are set, run the mould under room temperature water for a few seconds to loosen the mango popsicles from the mold. Serve immediately.
