History of Mango Pudding  

The mango pudding is a popular dessert in Hong Kong, where it is eaten as a traditional British dish. Preparation varies little from region to region. In addition to Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Macau, the dessert is also served as a dim sum in Chinese restaurants. Agar or gelatin, mangos, evaporated milk, sugar, and mangoes make up the new variant prepared by the restaurant or eatery. As a garnish, fresh fruit such as mango, strawberries, berries, and kiwifruit are occasionally added. This rich and creamy mango pudding is served and eaten cold from the refrigerator.

In Chinese culture, goldfish or koi are symbols of good luck, so some Chinese restaurants make mango pudding in fish shapes. Factory-made mango pudding, on the other hand, does not contain fresh mangoes but is made with mango essence and either gelatin or agar.
