Juicy Mango Tarts!

13 May

Mangoes mangoes everywhere…wondering what dessert to make? If you have already tried the mango mousse and mango cheesecake from my recipes, it’s now time to try the mango tarts. These no hassle tarts are good to indulge in at any time of the day, especially with your evening tea or coffee!

For fresh, crispy tart base, follow the sweet paste recipe from here

For the filling, you need these ingredients

Custard powder – 4 teaspoons (heaped)

Milk – 2 cups

Caster Sugar – 40 gms

Mango pulp – ½ mango

Sliced mangoes – 2


Step 1

Heat the milk and sugar in a vessel and stir until the sugar dissolves completely.


Step 2

In a bowl take a small part of the milk and mix it with the custard powder (not on the stove) until it dissolves completely and is free of lumps. Now add this custard mix to the remaining milk and sugar mix


Step 3

Mix until the custard reaches a semi solid stage. At this point, add the mango pulp and mix for some more time at a low flame.


Step 4

Take the custard mix off the stove and let it cool. Refrigerate it for 2 hours before piping it into the tarts


Step 5

Top it with freshly cut mango pieces.

Your awesome summer dessert is ready 🙂
