Mango Mousse

It's mango season and although they're not grown locally, this is the best time of the year to buy mangoes. Mangoes are my favourite fruit. I love eating them fresh and in all sorts of dishes like salads, stirfries and in desserts like this mango mousse.

Last week I made a cake for a farewell party for my former office mate, Susan, and I filled sponge cake layers with this mousse and iced the cake with whipped cream. It was a hit.

Try this out while mangoes are still in season and reasonably priced. In the off season, you can substitute the fresh mango puree with canned sweetened puree available at Indian grocery stores.

Oh, and for more technically inclined cooks, this recipe is not really a mousse. It's a bavarian.
