For my last submission to Little Thumbs Up (Mango), I tell myself that I have to make some mango puddings!
Do you know that mango pudding is a Chinese / Hong Kong kind of dessert?
Mango pudding is often served as one of the desserts in Chinese dim sum or yum cha restaurants. Most ideally, the best mango puddings are often served cold with rich, smooth and creamy texture and luxuriously fragrant flavours. Most typically, mango puddings are made of mangoes, sugar, evaporated milk or cream plus agar or gelatin for their semi-firm or jelly-like kind of texture. Most often, the quality of the puddings can vary depending on the recipes and the ingredients used to make this dessert.
Not to brag but I have to say that this recipe make my most ideal kind of mango puddings. Why? They are fully packed of fresh mangoes... That's why!!! In fact, four of these puddings are made of two really large R2E2 mangoes! If I do my maths right, one serve of these puddings is actually made of half of a large mango!!!
My husband squealed in my ears when he discovered two of the fat and juicy mangoes that he bought ended being these four little puddings... He said that I'm wasting the fresh mangoes but ended enjoying one of these puddings! Hmmm...
I remember watching an episode of SBS food safari at here a lot time ago and also remember very clearly that the show said that the secret to make a good mango pudding is to use mango ice cream!!! My eye brow rose instantly after knowing this secret and can't forget this recipe until today. From this, I have deduced something... Although I'm not exactly sure that using mango ice cream can make the best mango puddings, I'm 100% sure that the best mango pudding has to be SWEET and CREAMY and this kind of taste has to be from the ice cream!!!
Instead of mango ice cream, I like to use the real mangoes and cream to make my puddings and these are what I have made.
