    Yummy mango mousse(fat free)

    This recipe was given to me by my dear friend Archana, who is a new member to this site and is trying to acclimatize herself with the various forums.

    Not only is it yummmmy, it is fat free, so all those weight watchers and even the ones who do not care, can make this ultra simple dessert and please everyone around!

    Ingredients:
    a. 3/4 can of sweetened mango pulp (the ones we get at Indian stores, or you could use the sugar-free ones at Whole foods, but make sure to add some sugar while making the dessert then)

    b. Philadelpia fat-free cream cheese (8 oz container)

    c. 1 or 1.5 sachet of unflavored gelatin (i used knoxx)

    d. Cool-whip fat free- 7-8 oz -not the can but the container.

    Method of preparation:

    -Add the gelatin to abt a tea-cup of steaming hot water and whisk so as to prevent lumps.
    -Add all of the above (a through d) and blend in a mixer or blender until everything mixes well.
    -Transfer to a dish and refridgerate for atleast 4 hours. Remember NOT the freezer section, but the fridge. The result is a fluffy, light yet heavenly dessert!

    Three easy easy steps is all it takes!! You get all of the stuff(b,c,d) at Safeway!

    Love-
    Shal

    summer around so lemon soufle will be grt

    hai folks,
    this is a simple stuff but not available in the market except may be in 5star hotels so lets have a lemon souffle.
    ingredients..4large lemon, rind finely grated juice strained
    4eggs
    15g powdered gelatine 1/2oz one table spoon
    4tbsp cold water
    200gms castor sugar
    30cl doublecream 1/2 pint.two packets of the nilgiris in market will do
    around 5 3/4thinch souffledish measured across on top,fit a standing collar of
    grease proof paperto come at least 3" above the rim... select two bowls
    one larger than the otherand a sauce pan overwhich the larger bowl will fit
    securely.pour 2 to 3" of water into the saucepan and put it on to a medium heat
    make quite sure that the smaller bowl is perfectly dry and clean...
    seperate the eggs,dropping the yolks in the larger bowland the whites into the
    smaller bowl...in a cup sprinkle the gelatine over the cold water and
    leave to soften...
    add the sugar to the egg yolks.fit the bowl over the pan of water,which should be
    barely simmering.mix the egg yolk mixture vigorously until it is think and light
    and leaves a trail on the surface when the whisk is lifted.Gradually whisk in the
    lemon juiceand continue to whisk until the mixturethickens again..this time it
    will manage to hold a trail on the surface..take the pan off the heat and remove
    the bowl..
    stand the cup containing the softened gelatine in the pan of hot water,dissolve
    the gelatine.stirring occassionally,Mean while continue to whisk the egg yolk
    mixtureuntil just lukewarm.When the gelatine is completely dissolved,remove the
    cup from the water..allow it to cool slightly..Whisk the gelatin into the egg
    yolk mixture..Fold in the lemon rind..
    whisk the cream until the trail just holds its shape on the surface be careful
    not to let it get too stiff,or it would be difficult to fold in.the texture
    should be of the same as the egg mixture...
    Make sure ur whisk is clean and dry..whisk the egg whites until they hold in
    shape of floppy peaks. with a large metal spoon or spatulafold the cream
    into the egg yolkmixture..followed by the beaten egg whites working lightly and
    quickly as possible....
    stand the prepared souffle dish on a plate/ pour in the souffle mixture,take care
    not to dislodge orcrumplethe paper collar..leave it firm slightly for 15 to 20
    minutesbefore transferring the dish to the refrigerator..chill the souffle for
    2 to 3 hours until firmly set. just before serving peel off the paper collar and
    decorate if desired with swirls of piped whipped creamand press some
    chopped toasted nuts around or sliced strawberry or any fruit of season the exposed sides....eat and say hai sundari it was
    damn good...go at it

    malai kulfi

    This is a very simple recipe. I have more from a cookery class, shall send them later.

    Malai kulfi:

    Carnation milk- 1 tin
    Milkmaid- 1 tin
    Full cream- 500 gms

    Mix all, adjust sugar. Add powdered elaichi and zafran.

    To freeze: There are two methods:

    1) Chill this mix. Pour in an ice cream churner and churn till hard. Then freeze in kulfi moulds
    OR
    2) Chill mix well. Freeze in a general plastic container till semi hard. Take out the mixture and blend in mixie for two minutes, twice.

    Repeat this whole process once or twice.

    This blending is to eliminate crystals. The more you do this, the better the kulfi will set.

    After last blending, pour in kulfi moulds and freeze.

    To serve: Can de-mould and serve plain chopped into four pieces

    OR

    Chop and serve with fruit like chickoo,papaya, mango & other tropical fruit

    Or

    Chop and serve with vermecelli cooked in milk and sweetened, toped with nuts.

    Do let me know how this turns out. I make it for almost all dinners in my house.

    Hi Heena,

    Thanks for liking the kulfi recipe. It is from my mother and comes out well.

    Carnation milk is evaporated milk. Let us say, it is unsweetened condensed milk. It can be used to lighten coffee, tea also.

    You can substitute carnation milk with thickened milk. But that involves work.

    If you want a couple of other kulfis, let me know after u try this.

    regards
    VR
