MANGO PUDDING

MANGO PUDDING by Linda Tay Esposito

A newer addition to the dim sum repertoire, the mango pudding is influenced by Western desserts techniques (since the Chinese are not too big on desserts! "Not too sweet" is always a sign of a good dessert for the Chinese!). Instead of heavy cream, you can substitute with coconut milk to give it a more tropical flavor.
