Saffron Mango Crème with Pistachios

This past weekend a few of us friends met up at another friend's place for a potluck dinner. I usually take dessert which gives me a chance to try something new. This time I made Saffron Mango creme, a creamy smooth dessert with the intense flavor of Mangoes and the ever so slight royal taste of saffron running through it. Topped off with crunchy pistachios, this one's bound to be gone in minutes.



You will need:

1 cup Heavy whipping cream
1 ½ cups unsweetened Mango pulp
¼ - ½ cup powdered Sugar (confectioners’ sugar)
2 tbsp finely chopped Pistachios
1 tsp Saffron strands

6 (4 oz) Ramekins


Place the bowl of a stand-up mixer or a glass bowl, and beaters in the refrigerator to chill for about an hour. Whip cream in chilled bowl on medium speed until soft peaks form. The cream should have volume but no stiffness.


Slowly stir in the mango pulp, powdered sugar (to suit taste) saffron strands and a tablespoon of the chopped pistachios. Combine using a spatula, don’t beat.


Divide the mango crème between the six ramekins and refrigerate for 4-6 hours until thoroughly chilled. Top the crème with the remaining pistachios before serving.

  9. looks delightful! I have some mangoes in the fridge... Im thinking of giving this a try.. But I do not have "heavy whipping cream" and have never been able to find it anywhere in B'lore.

    I do have Amul Fresh Cream - would that do?

    Btw, Is it even possible to whip cream in a mixer? I dont have an electric beater.

  13. @Rohini, heavy whipping cream is the Amul heavy cream in India, so yes you can use the same. And I wouldn't suggest blending cream in a mixie/blender, because it will quickly turn to butter. You can use a whisk if you don't have an electric blender. It will only take longer to get the consistency you need.
