Salad to ice cream: Beat the summer heat with these yummy mango recipes.
Today, we are featuring Chef Ravneet (founder of Fleurons India), sharing her experience with Thai cuisine with the best of her two recipes.
"Post partition, half of our family shifted to Thailand. So till today, most of our food has a Thai touch. Whether it is a staple of Phat, Glass noodles or my mother’s authentic Peanut Salad, every celebration has a Thai dish. Even our fridge stores multiple bottles of authentic Thai Sweet Chilli sauce. And sometimes we have it paranthas with it! (Try it, it’s surprisingly pleasant!) In addition, our fond memories of Thailand include its icecreams and plenty of salads. So, using the best quality mangoes, let’s go ahead and create a Thai mango salad and a mango ice cream!" says Chef Ravneet.
THAI MANGO SALAD
Made on the notes of Thailand’s famous Som Tam salad, this salad has been a staple during summers. You can use mangoes, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, and cilantro, with Thai Sweet Chilli sauce's sweet and spicy dressing. You can make this at home or purchase it from the market and add it to your salad. Just make sure to buy the authentic one!
MANGO ICE CREAM
This easy to make recipe will only take you a few minutes in the kitchen. You can even make this comfortably in your dining room, so you don’t have to enter your hot kitchen during the day!
Shall you want to make a dairy free mango ice cream, substitute condensed milk with canned coconut milk, and add 50g of powdered sugar to it? Then, you can use a soy based whipped cream instead of a dairy based one.
Note: You can constantly adjust the sweetness of the ice cream by tasting it as you make it.
