Mango Mousse



Mango Mousse

Happy New Year to all my friends, readers and well wishers!
Wishing you all a wonderful 2013!

Starting this New year with a delicious treat, a wonderfully light and fluffy mousse. This is an egg less luscious dessert with made with mango puree and whipping cream.You can make it ahead and it is perfect for a dinner party especially if you do not want a overtly sweet desert. It is a light dessert and I love the color and flavor of mangoes. Try this,you will surely love it.

Ingredients

Mango puree- 2 1/2 cup
Whipping cream- 2 cup
Granulated sugar- 1/2 cup
( Add according to mango sweetness)
Gelatin- 1 packet
Salt- a pinch

lemon juice- 1/2 lemon


 Soak the gelatin in ice cold water for approx. 5 minutes.
Make a fine puree of the mango and put through a sieve before proceeding with the recipe.
Take 1/3 of the mango puree in a sauce pan and heat it in a low flame. When it is warm add the gelatin and mix well till it completely dissolves. Take off from the flame and mix in the rest of the mango puree and lemon juice and 1/3 cup of sugar. Put this in the refrigerator and allow to cool and slightly thicken.
 In the meantime whip the cream until soft peaks form, then drizzle in the remaining sugar and whip till incorporated and continue to whip till stiff it becomes stiff peaks. Remove the mango mixture from the fridge and gently fold in the whipped cream. Pour into dessert bowls and allow to set in fridge for 3-4 hours before serving.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy!

Kerala Chicken Roast

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala. Here I have shallow fried the chicken.It  tasted delicious with fried rice. Give this recipe a try...

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
