Easy Mango Pudding

Easy Mango Pudding

I know I have committed a sacrilege! The rains are already here…the mangoes are almost on their way out and not a single post with mangoes on divinetaste this season!

I don’t know how this happened! That I have been travelling and attending to certain uncertainties of life is no excuse! And this doesnt mean that I have not been enjoying mangoes this season.

Ro and I enjoyed a few crates of mangoes in Mumbai. And when Hari and me arrived at my parents, the first crop of the sweetest organic mangoes from my parents garden welcomed us. Truth be told, as always I ate mangoes more than I cooked with it this season too!

But then, I had to make something with the king of fruits, before he bid adieu this time. It had to be something really quick and simple to make too and that’s when I thought of this pudding. It is so simple and easy, yet has a touch of elegance to it, thanks to the royal mango!

One of the greatest discoveries and joys for me this season is to know that Hari loves mangoes too! And yes, he did eat this pudding too, but ofcourse with some dramatic story telling from my end! But the person who really relished this was my brother who has a discerning taste for good food.

I have been spending these last few days in my parental home before we board the flight back to Mumbai the following week, recuperating from my allergic cold, spending time with grandma and taking pictures. The gulmohar trees in the bylanes, the lush foliage overlooking the house and the sights of the green leaves from the windows is not just soothing, but also calming, enlivening and rejuvenating. As refreshing as my mother’s loving care!

I served this mango pudding plain, but you could dress it up with chopped mangoes, praline or mango glaze.

Easy Mango Pudding Recipe

You could substitute the cream with milk, but keep in mind that the cream adds a lot of creaminess and texture to the pudding. Like I said above, you could dress it up with chopped mangoes or praline*.

Ingredients:

300 ml (1 1/4 cup) milk
200 ml (3/4 cup) fresh cream (I used 25% fat)
1 mango, peeled, cut and pureed (1 cup mango puree)
60 gm (4 tbsp sugar)
2 tbsp custard powder or cornstarch

Method:

In a medium sized bowl, assemble all the ingredients and beat with a whisk or an electric blender until smooth and there are no lumps.

In a saucepan, bring this entire mixture to a boil on a medium low flame, stirring all the while, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Pour into individual bowls or a single bowl, bring to room temperature and cool in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before serving.

Makes 4 medium or 6 small servings

    Your so lucky to have access to real, fresh mangoes. I’ve never tried a mango pudding but will try to hunt some down after reading your delicious post.

  7. what a great color of those mangoes, so yellow. It has been a while since I have such mangoes.

  8. Divya Vikram says:

    What a delicious way to have mangoes!

  9. Wowwww… Looks soo delicious and creamy.. amazing pictures.. thanks for sharing dear :)

    Just recently living in Kolkata. Had some not so tasty mango to use up and this recipe seemed the perfect solution. It was! I only have a microwave so that had to do for the cooking and no way to puree the mango except to mash with a wisk. Although I believe I followed all of your measurements precisely (exc less sugar) I needed an additional tablespoon of custard powder. I had no idea custard powder was basically cornstarch. Thanks for the adventure!

  11. the mango pudding looks so soothing to eyes & must have been delish 1 I make it the same way too and hey I tried your eggless golden yellow cake today and dressed it up with creamy chocolate icing- it was perfect !! thanks a ton, will be sharing it on my blog tomorrow- thanks again !

  12. Anushruti says:

    JC: It is delicious adventures such as yours that brings spice to life. Isnt it? Additional custard powder would make the pudding on the thicker side. How one prefers it is a personal choice ofcourse. Thanks for reporting your measures.

    every one who were firtunate to get hogged on it

  16. looks beautiful! I have eaten tons of mangoes this season and have blogged several mango recipes! one more recipe to try!!

  17. I committed the same horror. Just gorged on mangoes the whole time, and now it’s too late to make anything :( They arrived so late this year!

    That pudding looks amazing, bookmarked for whenever I come across mangoes again.

  18. Mona says:

    The sight of Gulmohar trees makes me very happy. The last year, this time around when I was in Hyderabad visiting my parents, there were beautiful blooms on gulmohar trees everywhere.
    I also got to enjoy the mango season in India after a long time. Miss them badly this year.

  19. Joyti says:

    You are a genius – to get this pudding/custard so thick without eggs or gelatin…and with such a high proportion of milk instead of pure cream. It looks absolutely delicious, great way use mangoes…

  20. Marian says:

    This mango pudding looks great, I will try to make it as well. The picture with the mangos in the bowl is really impressive!

  21. Anushruti says:

    Joyti: Thanks for your appreciation!

  22. Georgiana Darcy says:

    Hmm, that was delicious! I will certainly make this kheer (or is it a payasam?) again. Best wishes from Berlin, Georgiana

  23. Anushruti says:

    Georgiana: It is neither! But you will find a recipe for kheer here if you want to make it.

  25. Michaela O says:

    OHHH my goodness. i just googled easy pudding, found this recipe and HAD to make it. Mangoes are my new favourite fruit having hated them all my life so if what I tasted having licked the bowl is anything to go by, this will be my new favourite pudding. Thank you so much for this genius culinary spark

  26. Michaela O says:

    P.S. I dont think we grow mangoes here in NZ in large quantities and at the moment they are still stringey and expensive to buy fresh so in my desperation i used tinned mangoes this time. look forward to making it again with fresh sweet juicey ones in the next mth or so

  27. Anushruti says:

    Michaela: I have been the exact opposite of you….loving mangoes all my life…so happy you liked this pudding!

  28. Swetha says:

    Hi..
    I would like to know which flavored custard powder to use.Should i use mango flavor or will any other flavor do?

  29. Anushruti says:

    swetha: You can use vanilla flavoured custard powder. You can also use cornflour.

  30. Shaila says:

    Hi,

    I am so happy to come across Divine Taste. Its everything I’ve been looking for :). Tried the mango pudding today as I really wanted to make something with fresh mangoes and added custard powder. Methinks the result was a bit runny and smelt more of custard than mango even after being in the refrigerator for 6 hours. Should i stick to cornflour instead and increase the mango puree? As well as take 1 cup milk instead?

    Shaila

  31. Anushruti says:

    Shaila: Thank you for your kind words. Please stick to cornflour in this recipe for better results.
