Mango in Sweet Coconut milk

 

Temperature is soaring here and it’s not fun! This is definitely not the time to be cooking anything that takes more than 10 minutes in the kitchen.

We had many ripe mangoes and I was craving for something sweet and cold. It was time for a childhood favorite mango dessert ‘Rasayana’! This light mango and coconut milk dessert takes minutes to make and it is absolutely delicious!

Sweet mangoes are finely chopped and mixed with coconut milk. I made the coconut milk fresh but you can also buy it. If you want it creamier try it with coconut cream. This mixture is further sweetened with Jaggery. Jaggery is traditional unrefined non-centrifugal whole cane sugar. It contains the natural goodness of minerals and vitamins inherently present in sugarcane juice.

It has a distinct taste which adds a lot of flavor to the dish. This mixture is topped with lightly toasted sesame seeds for lovely nuttiness!

This is a completely Vegan Raw Dessert and is actually very healthy with fresh fruit, coconut milk and NO refined sugar!

Savor this delicate mango dessert when you want to indulge in something guilt free!

  • 2 ripe mangoes
  • 1 ½ cups coconut milk/cream
  • Jaggery according to taste
  • Sesame seeds 1 tbsp

 

Peel and finely chop mangoes. We use a traditional method where we make vertical and horizontal cuts on the mango and then scrape the fruit out. You can also squeeze all the juice out at the end. Why waste something so good!

Finely powder the jaggery to make it easier to dissolve in coconut milk.

Add jaggery and mango to the coconut milk. Top it with lightly toasted sesame seeds and serve cold.
