Easy Mango Pudding!

Hello friends!

This mango pudding is as simple as a pudding could possibly be! This is gelatin free and has a sweet and tangy taste to it. It is so good for those weeknight cravings, just whip up the below mentioned ingredients and freeze! The picture shows 4 moulds with mango pudding because we wanted to enjoy small sweet bites so divided the pudding that’s meant for two into four!!

I have used safeda variety of mango in my pudding as it is sweet and fibreless. For the topping, I have used the totapuri variety of mango, to get that little sweet & tangy flavor at the top! It is the combination of these two varieties of mango that gives this dish it’s amazing flavor.

BESAN LADOO (ROUND DESSERT BALLS MADE WITH GRAM FLOUR)

Hello friends,

Yesterday, I made these yummy Besan Ladoos for my kids as they were craving for something sweet. This became our summer project and we enjoyed making it together! This is a easy recipe and very popular in India. You fill find lot of different versions of these ladoos in India, with melon seeds, jaggery, boora, almonds but i like it plane and easy with just a few ingredients.

Good to Know

Besan (Gram Flour) is rich in protein and complex carbohydrate. It is high in folate, Vit B6, fiber and Iron. Since we are using lot of ghee and sugar in this recipe, it is best to consume these ladoos in moderation.

---------------------------
Makes 10 Ladoos Approx
Course: Dessert/Sweet Dish
Cuisine: Indian
Difficulty Level : Easy
-----------------------------

Ingredients

200 gm or 2 cup Besan (Gram Flour)
3-4 powdered Ilaichi (Cardamom)
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4th cup Desi Ghee (Clarified Butter)
Ingredients
Ingredients

Method

  1. Add besan in a Kadhai and roast on low flame for 10 minutes. Add Desi ghee and keep on roasting, let the besan combine well with ghee. Use 1/2 cup ghee, if you want your ladoos to be more firmer.

2. After about 20-25 minutes the besan starts to release ghee. By now it should be little dark in color. Keep on roasting till it becomes golden brown. (proper roasting of besan is very important, if it is under roasted, it will have a raw smell to it and ladoos won’t taste good and over roasting will make the besan bitter)

3. Turn off the flame, after about 30-35 minutes of roasting. Let it cool down and transfer it to a large bowl.

4. When the besan is slightly warm, add powdered sugar and Ilaichi (cardamom) powder, mix well with hands. (Do not mix sugar in hot besan, as it will melt the sugar)

5. Prepare round ladoos and enjoy!

--------------------------------
Makes : 9-10 mini bites
Cuisine: American
Course: Snack/Dessert
---------------------------------

Ingredients & Qty
1. Banana : 1 peeled medium sized banana (don’t use soft, over ripe or raw one)
2. Dark Chocolate: 6 squares I have used 6 squares of one 150 gm Dark chocolate bar. Instead of Dark chocolate you can use white chocolate as well.
3. Natural Peanut Butter : 30 gm or 6 tsp (Approx) Instead of peanut butter you can use almond or some other favorite of yours.
4. Milk : 2-3 tsp 

Ingredients

Method
1. Cut the banana into thin slices (not too thin!)


2. Spread the peanut butter on a slice and cover it with the other slice, so basically you have to make banana and peanut butter sandwich. If you find the peanut butter as too sticky and hard to spread, microwave it for 30 seconds.

3. Freeze for about 1.5 or 2 hours. (It is important to freeze the bites before you start dipping them in the melted chocolate because otherwise you will find them slippery and difficult to work with)


4. In the meanwhile, place the chocolate squares in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute, remove and stir (Don’t rely on your eyes, because the chocolate pieces retain their shape until you stir them Or boil 1 cup water in a saucepan, then reduce the flame and let it simmer, Place a bowl that fits the mouth of the sauce pan, Put the chocolate in that bowl, keep on stirring until the chocolate melts)


5. Add 2 to 3 tsp milk and whisk, to make the chocolate dip easy to work with. Lot of people add coconut oil to achieve a thin working consistency but i prefer milk.  


6. Take the bites out of the freezer and one by one dip them in the melted chocolate leaving the top of the sandwich or you can only dip half of it or you can go for the chocolate coated version by putting the whole sandwich into the dip ( for this you may require little more chocolate). Place a baking sheet or parchment paper in the tray so as to avoid chocolate stains and also to easily transfer the bites to the serving dish. I could not arrange one because of the lock down in my city.  


7. Freeze the bites again for at least an hour before serving.
