Ingredients

  • 4 cups milk
  • 4 Tbls custard powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 12 x green cardamom pods
  • 2 x cinnamon quills
  • 200 ml water, boiling
  • 4 tspn gelatine
  • 4 x mangoes, flesh finely sliced into strip
  • 5 Tbls sugar
  • 5 Tbls water
  • 2 x large pinches saffron

Method

In a large saucepan place 3 ½ cups of milk, with the remaining ½ cup add the custard powder and dissolve. Add custard mixture to the remaining milk along with the cinnamon quills, cardamom and sugar.
Bring to the boil on a medium heat; simmer gently stirring constantly until mixture thickens. Remove from heat.
Mix the boiling water and gelatine together in a small bowl and stir until dissolved. Add to custard mixture and place saucepan back on low heat. Stir for 2-3 minutes until mixture thickens even more. Remove from heat and pull out spices and discard. Ladle out custard evenly among serving glasses and place into the fridge for 3-4 hours until custard is set.
In a small saucepan place the sugar, saffron and water. Simmer for 5 min on a medium heat, stirring constantly. (*The sugar mixture may start to caramelize and if it does so before 5 min go straight to the next step)
Add the sliced mango pieces and mix through the sugar mixture and simmer for a further 2 min until the mixture reduces slightly. Remove from heat and cool completely. Place on top of set custard and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Garnish with mint leaves.
