Cook's Hideout: Mango Custard

June 12, 2006

Mango Custard

This is an idea my mom gave me, when I told her that I have 2 yogurt containers full of mango puree. It takes about 2 minutes to get all the ingredients together and about 15-20 minutes to cook. Very simple... very delicious

Mango puree - 1 cup (2 ripe magoes, peeled, diced and pureed)
Sugar - 1/4 cup (or according to taste)
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Custard powder - 4 tbsp (I used Brown and Polson custard powder)
Milk - 1/4cup
Cashews and raisins (fried in 1tbsp ghee) - optional

  • Mix custard powder with milk and stir well to make sure that there are no lumps.
  • Add mago puree, custard-milk mixture, sugar in a pan and on medium-low flame cook for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Mixture will come together into a pudding consistency. Add cardamom powder before removing from heat.
  • Add the fried cashews and raisins (if using). You can serve this warm or chilled.

  5. Hi Pavani, I always make this using mango flavoured custard powder but never get thick consistency. Good idea of mixing mango puree in this. Thanks for the yummy and easy recipe.
