EGGLESS MANGO MOUSSE - Guest post by a special friend

Guest posting for one another is a common scenario among food bloggers. Its just like exchanging eatables among good friends and enjoying. Only thing is that it happens on a virtual platform. This time, I am featuring some of my non blogger friends who are great cooking enthusiasts but otherwise busy with their lives. The first person who agreed guest post was my dear friend Ammu ( Amudha). She is a super talented and creative lady and I have been pestering her to start a blog and share her creativity. I hope she does soon. I am so very glad to feature her here and thank her for posting this gorgeous looking recipe on my Big day. Thank you Ammu.... Over to you now..

I am elated to guest post for Sowmya  of Tuma's Tongue Treats. She is an outstanding food blogger and a beloved friend of mine. I always admire her crisp descriptions that talks about tradition and culture along with the attractive photography and authentic recipes.  I take this opportunity to thank my friend for all the encouragement and guidance she has given me to write this guest post on her food blog. Its a pleasure to get a small space in your exquisite space. "Today, being your birthday I would like to dedicate this post you my beloved friend". Thank you again Sowmya and enjoy!



A little about me personally...  I am Amudha Siva, married and settled in Bay Area, CA. I, being a full time stay-at-home mom of two handsome kids, love spending time with them.  I love anything that's creative and decorative. While I enjoy cooking, painting is my passion.

An easy-to-make dessert that can be made ahead of time would be a sure hit! Well, who does not love sweet mangoes? My entire family and friends craves and relishes this tropical flavored dessert which is a blend of both sweet and slightly sour taste. This ineffable velvety, light and extremely creamy dessert will make your guests crave for more. 

Cuisine : International

Category :Dessert
Preparation time : 20 mins
Cooking time : 0 minutes
Servings: 8 - 10


INGREDIENTS

  • Sour cream - 8 oz 
  • Cream cheese - 8 oz 
  • Agar agar - 5 tsp (powder)
  • Mango Pulp - 1 Can 
  • Water - 1 cup 
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup
METHOD

  • Add agar agar to a cup of water in a small saucepan.
  • Whisk the mixture together and bring it to a hard boil on medium-high heat, being careful not to let the liquid boil over. 
  •  After the mixture has dissolved, add sugar and mix well for it to dissolve thoroughly. 
  • In a large bowl strain the mango pulp and mix the sour cream and cream cheese to blend well using hand blender in low speed.
  • Pour the agar agar and sugar mixture to the above and blend again to incorporate well without lumps.
  • Transfer the mousse to any container to serve and refrigerate to set for minimum of 6-8 hours. 
  • Serve chilled !




NOTES

  • You may substitute agar-agar with 3 pouches of unsweetened gelatin. Read the instructions given on the box to dissolve the gelatin with a cup a water. 
  • I have doubled this recipe and used 8" spring-form pan lined with wax paper to set the cake with clean edges.
  • You may reserve about 1 tbs of mango pulp to use it to decorate before or after refrigerating. 
  • If you want an elaborate decoration, I would suggest you to freeze the mousse for 2-3 hours to avoid melting. Enjoy decorating!
  • Have fresh mangoes handy? Lucky you! Go for it please.
