I had bookmarked two mango recipes long back when mangoes were not available in the market! First, the Mango Yogurt Verrine from Swapna's Cuisine and the Mango and Vanilla Custard Verrines from Sharmi's Passion. Now, when the mangoes were available, the yogurt for the verrine was missing! And so, I combined both the recipes; used vanilla custard instead of yogurt and the resulting product is the Mango Vanilla Verrine or Mango Custard Verrine!!! A simple, easy-to-make calorie-rich dessert; so dieters stay away *winks*....
Recipe Adapted from: Swapna's Cuisine & Sharmi's Passion
Vanilla Custard - 3 cups
Sugar - 3 tbsp (acc to your taste)
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp
Mango puree - 2 or 3 cups (puree of 2 mangoes)
Gelatin - 2 tsp
- To Make the Custard: Prepare the custard according to the instructions given on the packet. Allow it to cool completely. Sprinkle 1 tsp of gelatin over 1 tbsp of water and microwave for 10 sec. Mix together with the custard.
- To Make the Mango Layer: Peel mangoes and puree them in a blender without adding water. Taste and add sugar if required. Sprinkle 1 tsp of gelatin over 1 tbsp of water and microwave for 10 sec. Blend it together with the mango mixture.
- Assembling the Verrines: In a small glass/bowl, layer the custard mixture and the mango mixture alternatively. Chill them until set. Decorate with chocolate or silver beads.
