My Kitchen : Mango Mousse (17th Serv)

Mango, often called the king of fruits, has great health benefits. A known anti-oxidant, it contains phenolic compounds, it has healing capacities and can prevent cancer. A regular intake of the fruit is beneficial for pregnant women and people with anemia. It is also a rich source of tryptophan, the precursor of the “happiness-hormone” serotonin.

Mangoes, say doctors, are perfect to replenish salts, vitamins and energy after a workout. Rich in enzymes, such as magneferin, katechol oxidase and lactase, mango helps in digestion and cleaning the bowel. And good digestion in turn helps in relieving clogged pores of the skin.

It is a rich source of Vitamin B, E, potassium and selenium which help to protect against heart disease and other ailments.

You can have mangoes in pickle, chutney, sorbet or raw; as breakfast, dessert or any time of the day. Here is an easy-to-make recipe of mango that will make your mouth water.

1. Ripe mangoes, about 2 kg
2. ½ cup lime juice
3. ½ cup granulates sugar
4. 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
