Hello !!!!!!!

Work has kept me busy and away from blogging for sometime. Hope you are all looking forward to my latest recipe.Today i will be sharing a very popular dessert from HongKong. This yummy dessert is so light and refreshing  that it will leave you craving for more.This dessert is actually a thin pillow shaped crepe stuffed with whipping cream and mango chunks.It tastes absolutely divine and is so easy to to make it at home.My boys went gaga over this dish.I just loved the elastic and moist pancake with mango chunks.

Recipe for Stuffed Mango Pancake:

Ingredients:

(1Cup =240 ML)

1 Cup Fresh Milk

1/3 Cup Unbleached All purpose Flour

3 Eggs lightly beaten

1/4 Cup Custard Powder (Plain)

10 Gms melted Butter

For Stuffing :

1/4 Tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 Tbsp Icing Sugar

300 ML Whipping Cream

3 Mangoes peeled and cut into chunks

Method:

Take a mixing bowl. Pour the milk in the bowl. Now sift the flour ,icing sugar and custard powder into the bowl.Whisk all the ingredients untill it is lump free and well combined.Add the lightly beaten eggs and melted butter to the mixture. Mix well. Now sieve this mixture in order to remove the lumps if any. Custard powder gives a nice yellow colour to the pancake.

Heat  a non stick pan over low heat. Pour  mixture using a ladle and swirl it to form a thin disc (just like  you make dosa). Once the air pockets appear on the top remove the pancake and allow it to cool .It is to be cooked only on one side.Repeat this procedure for the balance mixture.

In the meantime whip the cream and whipping cream till you get stiff peaks. I have added a tsp of icing sugar to this mixture.

Now lay the pancake on a flat surface .Smooth side will be facing down. Add a tsp of whipped cream in the centre of the pancake.Place a mango chunk on the top.Wrap the filling from all the four sides to shape like a pillow. Place the folded side facing down and chill these pancakes for about 30 minutes before you serve . This will keep the whipped cream stiff.  My boys could not wait so i had to serve it immediately.

This post is dedicated to my MOM on the occasion of Mother’s Day. Mother’s day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. I feel it is a celebration not on just one day but everyday.

My Mom is my strength. She has always encouraged me ,taught me and made me what I am today. I have understood her much better since I became a MOM.My mom is a self taught woman who lost her parents at the age of 18. She has equipped herself to be an independent woman in every possible way. She is always outspoken ,caring and helpful. She treats everyone equally irrespective of how she is treated, but never compromises on her self respect. She is always positive and vibrant with energy. She is one person who has never changed in any circumstance. I am always amazed to see how well she handles any situation. She is very practical .I am constantly learning from her. I love you Mom.I am so blessed to be your daughter.

My Mom loves Mangoes, Ice cream and Chocolates. This Mothers day I am sharing the recipe of her favorite dessert Mango Mastani.
