Asha's Mango-Cream JellO


Nowadays I am pretty busy with some household chores and stuff, so I feel as if I am not getting enough time to spend for the blog!! I guess for a few of the upcoming events I've already gotten my entries ready and probably thats why I am not making anything new. I wish I could go back to posting everyday, but because of time-constraints (I have family coming over), I am not able to. But I do find time to hop over to the creative blogs of my dear fellow bloggers and leave comments!! :-)

For "MBP: Less is more" event at Nupur's One Hot Stove, I chose this pretty, cool and delicious Mango-Cream Jello from Asha's blog - Aroma. Asha's blogs Aroma and Foodie's Hope are treasure chests of wonderful recipes both simple and sophisticated. I made this dessert immediately after she posted hers. She answered my queries about the dessert quickly and I finished mine just as quick. We enjoyed the jello a lot! Again, since I had made only half the recipe, I had to fight for my share! I loooove mangoes and this is my kinda dessert! If you have guests over and need to whip up something super quick, this is the recipe for you! I guess in place of mango puree, fresh mangoes would be just as good. With just four ingredients, this is just awesome! Enjoy!! :-)


Recipe:

Mango pulp - 1 3/4 cup
Half and half or Heavy cream - 1/4 + 1/4 cup
Knox unflavored unsweetened gelatin - 2 envelopes
Powdered sugar - 1-2 tbsp, if using unsweetened mango pulp
Whipped cream and pistachios - for garnish (optional)

Method:

Mix the mango pulp, 1/4 cup cream and sugar (if using) and mix until creamy.

Heat 1/4 cup of cream, add gelatin and mix until the gelatin dissolves.

Add this mixture to the mango mixture and whisk well.

Pour into molds and chill until set (about 3 hours).

Serve chilled with garnish.

Tips:
  1. I only made half the recipe as I only had a little of the mango pulp.
  2. Add 1 envelope of gelatin to 1 1/4 cup or less liquid.
  3. The geltin can also be added directly without warming the cream, but the mixture has to be beaten well for the gelatin to dissolve.

I am sending this delicious mango dessert, also to "WYF - Juices and Icecreams" event at EC's Simple Indian Food and to the "Sweet Series - Cool Desserts" event at Mythreyee's Paajaka.








Enjoy this wonderful dessert and have a nice day!!
