This creamy mango pudding is a simple dessert that you can try during summer time. Its so simple to make and will not cost a lot at all too. This is a very popular dessert in Asia. When the mangoes are in season try this this recipe with fresh mangoes. You can use frozen or canned mangoes for this too.
If you are a vegetarian try making them with agar agar powder with out gelatin powder. Instead of milk or cream you can add coconut milk too. So it becomes vegan too.
Homemade marshmallow is the best when you compare with the shop bought ones. You can make fifty pieces from less than 5 dollars. Its so simple and easy to make too. Gelatin , sugar and the glucose syrup are the main ingredients for making marshmallows. Glucose syrup is called as corn syrup in countries.
Making these gives much fun as well as self satisfaction. You can use marshmallows on hot chocolate, smores and also when camping. Kids will love to burn the marshmallows over the camp fire.
You can make them with egg whites too. But these are the best as I suggest. Making candy is really simple when you have a candy thermometer. Its worth having one if you are someone who like to make candies or fudges.
When you coat the marshmallows make sure to coat them with half corn flour and half confectioners sugar, also called as icing sugar.I have missed that clip when I did the video. make sure to coat on the corn flour and icing sugar mix well before sifting the excess sugar out.
I did this recipe with lots of adjustment and with my previous experience. So this recipe is guaranteed 100% to get good quality marshmallows as the same as from shops.
The recipe for the Marshmallows are below………
These are some of the closer looks you can experience.

Sandwiches are the easiest meal that you can try in few minutes. But when you make sandwich its much better if you can make each with different flavours. I always make them with different flavours.

Tiramisu is a beautifully layered Italian dessert, normally made with raw eggs in and as a custard. I did this with out eggs. One reason is it to give an idea for those who don’t consume eggs.
If you do not like to use liquor please don’t use any at all. Even this tastes beautiful with out eggs and liquor. Instead you can add pure vanilla paste to get more flavour.
All you need to remember is not to soak the cookies longer time. If you dip them longer it can break easily and will not get a nice layers like in my picture. When you leave it over night the flavours go through all the cookies and liquids get absorbed and becomes like at hick slice. I have friends who change the recipe and dip the cookies in drinking chocolate than in coffee. That way it gives a beautiful chocolate flavour to the slice.
