Mangoes are clearly not Nabeel’s favourite! Recently, I served him Aam ras (sweetened mango pulp popularly enjoyed as a dessert in India during the mango season) for the first time and he instantaneously showed excitement in savouring the “mango soup”….duh, both of us were disappointed 😦 . He definitely prefers savoury over sweet and this new “sweet” dish let him down. Since then, mangoes have been chalked out of his food list.
On the other hand, Husband and I love mangoes and Nabeel’s disapproval of the same didn’t dissuade me from making this lip-smacking dessert which is made in a jiffy in 4 simple steps. The aromatic mango is paired with a sweet and subtle flavour of cardamom to bring out the best of both worlds. Do try it out.
I plan to come up with some more mango recipes and make the best of this season. And remember, Keep Calm and Eat Aam (mangoes) 🙂
