Mango Mousse - Easy Peasy Dessert

Serves 4-5
   Mr.Sun has finally decided to shine on us.We're having a  week of perfect sunshine and warmth after almost 8 months of cold winter.After too many months of staying indoors,we're finally spending most of the time outdoors.The only downside is that I don't get to spend time with my blog:)It's ironic when I think that, in Chennai at the sight of the sun I would think twice before venturing out or would take a real big Umbrella along.Now no matter how warm it gets little girl & I are at every park and play area in the neighborhood :)
    In India,the moment I think of peak summer,I remember the smell of round yellow and juicy mangoes. My Dad loves mangoes, so every summer our house would be fully stocked with them.He was very good at selecting them,one look at them and he would tell if they would be sweet or not.Dinner at home would always include a bowl of curd rice and sweet mangoes.How I miss my Dad and all those simple pleasures of life  that he taught us to appreciate:) This mousse recipe is very simple and can be whipped up in no time. Comes in very handy when you have a large crowd to feed or when you have surprise guests at home :)


You'll need:
Mango -  1 big
Condensed Milk - 125 ml
Whole milk - 2 -3 tbsp
Sugar -  2 -3 tbsp ( adjust according to taste)
Cream Cheese - 125 g
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
Pistachio  - 1 - 2 tsp (chopped)
Nut Powder - 2 - 3 tsp (Almonds or Cashews or any nut of your choice)




Method:
-Clean the mango,remove the skin and the seed .Chop it and add to a blender along with the sugar.Pulse until it's well blend.
-Cut the cream cheese into pieces and add to the blender.Pulse for a few seconds.
-Add the condensed milk ,nut powder,whole milk and cardamom powder to the blender.Pulse until every thing is well blend.
-Transfer the contents of the blender to another vessel.
-Check for sugar.If you feel that it needs more, add some more and pulse again.
-Sprinkle the pistachio nuts and let it chill in the refrigerator.Done !



Note :
-You can replace the cream cheese with pureed paneer.If using paneer,replace half the quantity of  condensed milk with thick yogurt.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day !
