Tips and Tricks
Ensure to whip the cream just until soft peaks, do not over-whip it.
You may not require as much sugar as mentioned in the recipe card if the mangoes are sweet. Check the taste and adjust it to suit your taste preference.
Use a chilled bowl and whisk attachments to speed up the whipping process.
Keep the bowl and whisk attachments in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours before you plan to make a mousse.
Ensure to use cream straight from the fridge. With not so cold or warm cream you may not achieve soft peaks regardless of how long you whip the cream.
The term "pudding" has varied meanings in different regions. In the UK, it's a generic term used to describe a dessert that's eaten after the main meal. It could be any sweet treat to finish the meal - cakes, ice cream, pies, crumbles, custard, cobbler and puddings are a few to name.
However in most parts of the world pudding is meant to be a specific (particular) category of sweet dish that contains milk, sugar, and a thickening agent as the base ingredients such as rice pudding, coconut pudding, and wheat berry pudding.
The primary distinction between mousse and pudding (sweet dish) is the texture, the preparation method and the ingredients used.
1. Pudding is rich and dense whereas mousse is lighter and fluffier.
2. Mousse is not cooked but pudding is a cooked dessert.
3. Starch-based Ingredients are used to thicken pudding whereas mousse is thickened using whipped cream.
4. Mousse is eaten chilled whereas pudding can be eaten chilled or warm.
Yes, mousse firms up well in the fridge. It is essential to chill the mousse at least for half an hour to achieve firm spoonable consistency.
1. Use it up in mango mousse cake.
