Decided to try out this mango pudding dessert from About.com to accompany my Thai dishes. My little cousins loved it!
Ripe mangoes - 2
Gelatin - 3 tsp
Hot water - 1/2 cup
White sugar - 1/3 cup
Coconut milk - 1 cup
Scoop out the fruit. Place the fruit in a food processor and blitz to create a smooth mango puree. Leave the mango in the processor.
In a saucepan, heat up the water until it reaches a rolling bowl. Remove from heat. While stirring the water with a whisk or fork, sprinkle the gelatin over the surface of the water and stir briskly in order not to have any lumps.
Add the sugar to the hot water/gelatin mixture and stir to dissolve.
Add this mixture to the mango in the food processor. Also add the coconut milk. Blitz briefly until ingredients are combined.
Pour into dessert bowls or cups and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Serve cold on its own, or with some fresh fruits. (I served mine with some Nata de Coco and diced fresh mangoes.)
