Mango in Pearls or Mango pearls is delicious dessert made with one of the most delicious fruit found on Earth, Mangoes. As we all know it is Mango season in Pakistan and Sindhri variety has already started supplying some delicious Mangoes although my favorite variety is Chaunsa for which I wait for the whole year. I also recommend the people who want to make this dish to use Chaunsa variety of Mango.
Mango Pearl is also known as Mango Sago. It is a delightful recipe to make and is very tempting that you did want it to be available all year long! In 1980’s a local restaurant in Hong Kong invented this delicious traditional Asian dessert which has now grown popular all over the globe and is now added in most of the menus of Asian restaurants and Mango Pearl is one of its adaptation. Along with the mango pudding and tapioca pearls, the original Hong Kong version includes pomelo sections which you can definitely add in if you prefer another layer of flavor and texture.
Mango Pearl is one of the easiest desserts you can make. Since it is easy to made it serves as brilliant dessert to be served in parties, and other functions because it can be prepared ahead of time and involves a few ingredients. Along with its advantage of its ingredients being a few it also not requires a lot of work and the only difficulty in making it is to cook the Sago.
Its taste enhances when it is chilled for a few hours. Although this corona virus has stopped the businesses of restaurants and hotels in most of the countries, in normal days this dish is also quite good for them because it has low costs and a brilliant taste.
Although this dish is a dessert you can also use under ripe mangoes to add extra tartness but it is totally dependent on you as you can also use ripe mangoes or add more sugar to make it more ripe. You can use just about any type of mango but I suggest picking ones that have a smooth flesh and have no fibers.
Many people love Sago Pearls and this dish is definitely for them, the pearls itself has no taste but whatever it absorbs the taste of whatever they are made with. I also did a small research on the difference of sago to tapioca because they aren’t the same thing:Sago is made from a starch extracted from the pith of tropical palm trees. Tapioca pearls, on the other hand, come from cassava starch. I have recently made this Mango Pearls and thought it would be a great dish for my cooking blog as the last Mango dish was the Mango Milkshake.
To make this dish tapioca pearls or sago pearls are first soaked in cold water for about 20 minutes to soften them. Then, we bring milk, water, and maple syrup to a boil. Once boiling, remove it from heat and then immediately stir in the drained pearls. The pearls will cook and the milk will thicken, getting a pudding-like consistency with slightly chewy pearls! Next, we have the mango purée that simply consists of mango blended until smooth. Once you have a smooth mango purée, you can adjust the sweetness by yourself. Finally, add it in a bowl or in separate cups and then refrigerate it.
