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.

Great dessert after an Indian meal. I have now made it with pineapple and rum, great combination and works well.

A lovely simple dish. It followed beautifully a spiced Lamb dish. To save time and effort I used pre cut mango and for this recipe. I used 400g In total. 300 g purée and 100g finely chopped for the topping.

I thought this was absolutely delicious and I will definitely make it again. I think it was the brandy that made it extra special.

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)

Has anyone tried any other fruit - loved it with mango but wondered if pineapple would work too?

Hi, There is no reason why pineapple wouldn't work but as we haven't tested it ourselves we are unable to advise on quantities needed. Thanks

White port worked well as a substitute for the brandy
