Method

  1. Put the flesh of 2 mangoes in a food processor and blend to a purée. Stir in almost all the finely chopped flesh of the other 2 mangoes, then spoon into the base of 8 glasses.

  2. Grind the cardamom seeds to a powder, then put in a bowl with the lime zest and juice, icing sugar and brandy. Stir well, then tip in the cream and whip until it holds its shape. Fold in the crushed meringue.

  3. Spoon the cream mixture on top of the mango purée, then spoon the remaining chopped mango on top. This can be made 1 hr ahead. Serve decorated with mint sprigs.

Good palette cleanser after spicy meal. I excluded the brandy and meringue. I quartered this recipe for 2 but added extra cardamon and lime juice.

Made this as part of a 3 course dinner on mothers day and it was the best course! I halved the recipe as I was only cooking for 4, but I felt I had too much mango and not enough cream. I also at first only put 5 crushed cardamon pods in, but in the end after tasting I put the full ten (even though I was using half of the cream)

I used only half the cream as I didn't have the right amount, and we found it was the right balance of fruit and cream. We loved this dessert, it was really refreshing, and so easy to make.

I made this delicious desert as a trial for a dinner party & it is fantastic! The cream has fantastic flavors with the cardamom, brandy and the lime and the crushed meringue adds a lovely texture & sweetness to the desert. Went down well with my family and will be having this as my desert for my Indian themed dinner party!!

I made this with a tropical salad at the bottom. It contained pomegranate, kiwi, and passion fruit. I also only used 3 table spoons of brandy instead of 4. Also , I changed it alot, i used a couple of grates of fresh ginger and 1 stem ginger ball out of syrup finely chopped, instead of the cardamons.
