For this recipe, you can choose any kind of mangoes available to you. But do remember that you must ensure that they are not the fibrous varieties.

Be sure to adjust the amount of sugar to suit your taste. So add more if the mangoes do not have innate sweetness.

Take a look at the variations given in the ‘Notes’ section following the recipe. You will find options to make a richer kind of chilled dessert.

Other options are this absolutely gorgeous and healthy cheesecake … It’s simply yum!

Mango Stories

As children, we all waited for the mangoes to arrive in the city. Since I lived in Mumbai, the best way to pick up bargains was to visit the market in Byculla. So we usually went after our church service was over.

The market would be teeming with people jostling each other to get their hands on the best kinds. Indeed, some of the vendors would not sell smaller quantities we needed… they only dealt with the big players! But we got some who would agree to sell a couple of kilograms.

Ratnagiri hapoos was the king of kings. They were and are a bundle of joy! But the other varieties were also welcome. We carried them home and chilled and devoured them through the week with glee.

Of course, when it was not possible to go all the way there, we did purchase fruits from the local guys. Lazily pushing their pushcarts around, these vendors had their regular spots and would expect us to purchase something form them every time we passed by!

Good old memories! However, let us now move to the recipe!

  • In case it melts after taking it out of the fridge, put it in once more. It will set again.
