Is a popular dim sum dessert. Stephen Wong writes: "This simple dessert captures the glorious flavor of mango like no other. Its texture is silky rich, and its flavor, simply wonderful. Fresh cream is called for in the original recipe, but evaporated milk gives it the same richness without the fat."

Mango & Paneer Salad
It’s rare to see alphonso used in most of the salad because it is one of the expensive mango type. But some people have used it in salads and with spicy food to change the way we taste regular food. Mango and paneer is quite odd combination but you’ll find it tasty. Let’s take a look at how to prepare this salad.
- Alphonso Mango cubes 75 grams
- Paneer Cubes 100 grams
- Curry Powder 5-10 grams
- Lemon Juice 4-5 tablespoon
- Refined Oil 5 tablespoon
- Ice lettuce 50 grams
- Green capsicum 75 grams
- Curd ½ cup
- Salt to taste
Take a pan and add 5 tablespoon of refined oil in it. Add the curry powder and mix it well. Now remove it from pan and let it cool for a while. In a bowl, add mango cubes, pepper and lettuce and mix it with curry-oil mixture which you prepared earlier. And curd on it and stir it and before you serve add some salt, crushed pepper for taste.
These two recipes are the easiest recipes which you can prepare and for that you don’t need to be a cook. You’ll find these two recipes easy to prepare and to serve quickly. Have fun with alphonso this summer.
