Easy Mango Mousse | 3 ingredient, Eggless, No gelatin/agar agar

My husband looks out for quick and healthy recipes rather than me. Days are running faster with the toddler needing my attention all day. Alongside is the cooking, cleaning and other household chores. So the job of recipe hunting has been successfully undertaken by the husband and he is super good at it.

Last day I noticed he was buying more mangoes than usual and realised he had some recipe in mind. After we reached back, he showed me this recipe of an impossible sounding mango mousse without eggs or gelatin or agar agar or the rather heavy (pun intended) whipping cream. This made me super excited! Also it had only 3 basic ingredients – Mangoes, Yogurt and Condensed milk, which were readily waiting in my pantry. 

Even though the recipe sounded too easy to be true, I still had my doubts as it required for the mixture to be kept in the (switched off) oven overnight! Yes overnight! Was it a dosa batter or something??, came my thoughts from the dosa lover of a brain. But I decided to give it a try nevertheless.

And how delicious it came out! My first moment of joy was when the mixture set so well that even if I kept the bowl at an angle, it would not fall. Then as we had the first bite, we were overwhelmed with joy. This was definitely the easiest and most delicious dessert of all! So creamy and flavorful with the right amount of sweetness, you cannot stop at one spoonful. The bowl shown below got over between the three of us within the next few seconds of clicking this picture.

My little one calls this mango ice cream and absolutely loves it. I am really happy to have got this easy dessert recipe which I plan to make for dinner get togethers at my place. The best part is your work is very less, yet the resulting dessert comes out too yummy to be true. Hope you all try and love it too. Happy and healthy cooking!

RECIPE:

Adapted fromFood,fitness,beauty and more

Ingredients: {Serves 4}

  • 1 Cup Mango pulp ( I used 2 Badami Mangoes. You can also use store bought pulp.)
  • 3/4 Cup thick full fat Curd/ Yogurt/ Dahi
  • 3/4 Cup sweetened Condensed milk/ Milkmaid
  • Few strands of Saffron/ Kesar (can be substituted with cardamom powder)
  • Chopped dry fruits for garnish (optional)

Step by Step recipe:

  1. Wash well, peel, chop and puree mangoes in a mixer. (or directly add store bought pulp to the mixer.) 
  2. Now add yogurt and condensed milk. 
  3. Add saffron or cardamom powder or both. 
  4. Blend for a minute. 
  5. Pour in a single large oven proof bowl or small oven proof bowls. 
  6. Preheat the oven at 220 C  or 450 F for 10 mins. Then switch the oven off. The oven needs to be off when we place the bowls inside it. This step is just to provide the warmth to the mixture. The mixture should NOT be baked.
  7. Keep in the oven overnight or for 6 to 8 hours.
  8.  Remove from oven. See how well it sets overnight. 
  9. Cover with foil or any lid. 
  10. Refrigerate for 2 hours or till use. Stays well for a couple of days in the refrigerator.
  11. Garnish with dry fruits and serve chilled.

Notes:

  • Even if using store bought pulp, it is advisable to blend in the mixer with yogurt and condensed milk so that it turns into a smooth puree.
  • Be careful though to use thick (full fat) yogurt and not watery curd as this will lead to the mixture not setting.
  • I added only saffron for flavor and it gave a really good aroma and taste. You could add cardamom powder too or skip saffron or skip both for plain mango flavored mousse.
  • A very important step while making this mousse is to switch off the oven after preheating. This gives the mixture warmth for the mixture to set overnight.
  • Use only oven proof bowls/ clay pots to make this dessert. Do not use plastic ones. I used Ceramic bowls to make this mousse.
  • This is a fusion dessert, quite similar to Mishti Doi which I made earlier where the yogurt/ dahi is fermented overnight.
  • Garnish this dessert with dry fruits only if you like the crunch of it. We personally did not like the bite and I skipped it the next time I made it.
  • This dessert can be made ahead of time as it stays well in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. An excellent idea for parties.
