This beautiful thing that I am showing to you is called mango kheer and it is in the business of making summer meals a scrumptious affair. It has only 4 things:
- Ripe mangoes : Sweet and firm ones are preferred as you are chopping them in to very fine cubes. If you have ripe mangoes that are already set with wrinkled skin then you just forget making this version of mango kheer and go for mango rasayana that has puree in it. The whole point here is to feel the mango bites that are soft and sweet and not to drink or swallow the mango puree.
- Coconut milk :You can make your own and we’ll be proud of you. A blender or mixer and strainer would do this job easier for you. But if you are a kind of a person who likes NOT to spend ton of time in the kitchen, then canned coconut milk would come handy.
- Sugar : It is the sweetener and makes the kheer taste like REAL kheer, I mean lusciously sweet. Based on how sweet your mangoes are, you can adjust sugar. You can play around to get the right taste that your taste buds are looking for.
- Cardamoms :It makes mango kheer more flavorful and generally just satisfying and interesting which is just how I like my food.
This year summer has made me proud with mango being used in every possible recipe that comes in to my mind. Be it a breakfast it was there as Mango poori, then comes mango kesari as a dessert and as a banana mango swirl popsicle it has rocked the kids after-school-snacking world. It’s truly amazing, probably there is no other fruit that can take such a vast form of food. On top of that mango makes every food glorious that it’s been part of. I love you MANGO- the king of fruits.
