Step by step mango delight recipe with photos of each step.
This is a simple dessert which relies more on natural sweetness. This dessert is more suitable for tea party or Iftar dinner or those times when you look for healthier dessert which relies more on natural fruit sweetness. We at home often serve fruit before the tea in the evening, so this is a perfect dessert for those gathering.
This is also a handy dessert when you have guest to entertain and you wish make something very quickly.
Ok, confession! My kids do not like it much. They like plain mangoes better than this.
I made this dessert twice before posting here on the blog since, I was not sure how good it is. It tastes delicious but not as good as cold cake and other sweeter, creamier desserts.This is not decadent guilty sort of dessert.
Most importantly, use best tasting mangoes for this dessert. We rely solely in sweetness and moisture of mangoes. You can always take less or more mangoes to suit your purpose. Use any vanilla biscuit that you like best. I used only ½ tin condensed milk but if you add more condensed the dessert gets too sweet and will undermine sweet taste of mangoes. So, I found ½ tin to be perfect which makes the cream sweet but not too overpowering.
(Update: A reader suggested used steamed and slightly sweetened peaches instead on mangoes.
Another reader suggested adding some mango juice powder like (Tang Mango Juice powder) to make it more tangy and yummy.)
For a formal dinner, I don’t recommend this dessert. Because, everyone might not be such a fan of mango and might prefer something creamier and more chocolaty.
