Get Your Jelly On! Day 16 - Bersih (Mango Bavarois)
Yellow signifies many things.
For me, it's the sign of bright cheery things (which I hope are coming my way this coming week).
For some, it is the trademark colour for the call of electoral reforms in Malaysia hence the name "Bersih" that means clean in Malay.
There's definitely a lot of pink and green in the blog lately but not enough of this bright cheery palette.
The original intention was to make mango pudding that failed spectacularly in a pile of mush on Saturday. Hence I decided to rework the recipe and made it to a creamy bavarois. I suspect the gelatine powder could be a little less so this jelly can have a soft texture. Now it has a rubbery crunchy texture that is rather pleasant to eat especially chilled.
Here's to a great cheery Monday and electoral reforms in this country. We definitely need both of them.
Mango Bavarois (Makes 2 moulds and a little to spare)
100g caster sugar
6 tablespoons gelatine powder
2 tablespoons lemon juice
200g fresh mangoes, strained
mango puree, made from blending fresh mangoes
Combine sugar, gelatine powder, water, lemon juice in a pot. Stir over low heat until it comes to boil. Turn off the heat. Add mangoes and water. Reheat. Remove from the heat and leave to cool. Whisk cream until it forms soft peaks. Combine with the mango mixture. Pour into moulds. Chill for at least 2 hours. Remove from the mould and serve with mango puree.
