Summer has just started setting into Dubai, the days have started getting warmer though the mornings and evenings are still quite pleasant and one wouldn't mind going out for a stroll.
"I love Summer", its the time of the year when the King of of fruits "Mango" is available in abundance and onecan enjoy them in any form.
Here in Dubai mango's are available round the year from different parts of the world, but fruits in season are always the best. Indian mangoes are now available in the supermarkets, and I just cant resist picking them up.
Welcoming Summer with a quick and easy recipe made with Mangoes and lots of love...
"Mango Souffle" - A very light and fluffy dessert which is easy to make and can be enjoyed by all.
Mango, Ripe - 2
Cream Cheese - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/4th cup
Eggs - 3
Vanilla Extract - 1 teaspoon
Butter and some extra sugar to line the Souffle dishes.
Line Souffle dishes with butter and sugar and keep aside.
Preheat oven at 180°C.
Bring around 4 cups of water to boil as we will be using this while we bake the souffle.
Peal the mangoes, remove the seed and chop them roughly. blend in the mixer to make a puree. (This makes around 1 cup of puree)
Separate the egg yokes from the egg whites, add the cream cheese and half the sugar and vanilla extract and mix well to form a smooth creamy mixture. (I used my hand mixer at low setting to do this.)
In a separate bowl add the egg whites and the remaining sugar and whisk well until it forms still peaks.(You could use a stand mixer or a hand mixer to do this.)
Divide the mixture among the the lined souffle dishes and place them in an oven proof dish and ensure there is enough distance between them.
Pour the boiling water on the ovenproof dish, be careful not to splash water over the souffle. Bake in pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes.
While you bake the Souffle, please keep the dishes apart from each other as they tend to rise and at times the tops can get stuck to each other.
Pour the hot water carefully and ensure that the water is not more than half the height of the Souffle dish.
Serve Immediately, if you wait too long then the Souffle might lose some of its height and fluffiness, however the taste would not change.
Wish you all a very happy and healthy Summer.
