Layered Mango Mousse

I’m not a big-fan of Mangoes… Yes, you’re reading it right! I can’t have Aam-Ras more than a spoon or 2, I love diced mango though. Yet I make a big bowl full of Aam-Ras, of course for him… He loves it like anything! Well, we’re not one of those to buy a full box of mangoes in season. We buy max 2-3 at times… Maximum I said!!! And sometimes, I totally forget it lying in my fridge for a few days :P And I hate wrinkled ones.

I took out of one left-alone mango yesterday… Peeled it, diced it and kept the bowl back in fridge. While working on a cake order, I made some extra ganache to use it later for a cake/cupcake that I planned baking for us! Again, frosting of that cake got me some extra vanilla flavored whipped cream too… All what I needed was some inspiration only!!! :P Finally, while doing dishes I
saw 2 little glasses on shelf… And bang!!!

Opened a sachet of Agar Powder, pureed those mango cubes and shaved some dark chocolate :P Here you go with details of what I did ;)

STEPS TO FOLLOW:

  1. Mix water and agar powder in a small bowl and microwave for a min. Once it gets dissolved completely, cool it down a bit.
  2. Take whipping cream and caster sugar in a bowl and whip it until soft peak forms.
  3. Divide it in 2 portions (3:1). Add vanilla extract, 1/2 of agar mix to bigger portion and fold it well.
  4. Add mango puree to the other portion along with remaining agar mix and whip it well. Keep it in refrigerator until used.
  5. Make a layer of vanilla mix in glasses and put it in fridge for 30 mins.
  6. Take it out and make a layer of mango mix onto it. Again keep that in fridge until sets a bit.
  7. After around 30 mins, pour a layer of chocolate ganache on it and add some chocolate flakes.
  8. Garnish with sugar sprinkles and put it back in fridge to set.
  9. Allow it to set completely for 2 hours or so.
  10. Serve chilled!!!

SJ’s NOTE:

  • Agar doesn’t need to be set in fridge unlike gelatin. But I prefer to keep it that way just ‘coz of creamy mousse.
  • I have used agar powder here but those who prefer gelatin can skip the microwave step and go ahead!!!
