Work has kept me busy and away from blogging for sometime. Hope you are all looking forward to my latest recipe.Today i will be sharing a very popular dessert from HongKong. This yummy dessert is so light and refreshing that it will leave you craving for more.This dessert is actually a thin pillow shaped crepe stuffed with whipping cream and mango chunks.It tastes absolutely divine and is so easy to to make it at home.My boys went gaga over this dish.I just loved the elastic and moist pancake with mango chunks.
Recipe for Stuffed Mango Pancake:
(1Cup =240 ML)
1 Cup Fresh Milk
1/3 Cup Unbleached All purpose Flour
3 Eggs lightly beaten
1/4 Cup Custard Powder (Plain)
10 Gms melted Butter
For Stuffing :
1/4 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 Tbsp Icing Sugar
300 ML Whipping Cream
3 Mangoes peeled and cut into chunks
Take a mixing bowl. Pour the milk in the bowl. Now sift the flour ,icing sugar and custard powder into the bowl.Whisk all the ingredients untill it is lump free and well combined.Add the lightly beaten eggs and melted butter to the mixture. Mix well. Now sieve this mixture in order to remove the lumps if any. Custard powder gives a nice yellow colour to the pancake.
Heat a non stick pan over low heat. Pour mixture using a ladle and swirl it to form a thin disc (just like you make dosa). Once the air pockets appear on the top remove the pancake and allow it to cool .It is to be cooked only on one side.Repeat this procedure for the balance mixture.
In the meantime whip the cream and whipping cream till you get stiff peaks. I have added a tsp of icing sugar to this mixture.
Now lay the pancake on a flat surface .Smooth side will be facing down. Add a tsp of whipped cream in the centre of the pancake.Place a mango chunk on the top.Wrap the filling from all the four sides to shape like a pillow. Place the folded side facing down and chill these pancakes for about 30 minutes before you serve . This will keep the whipped cream stiff. My boys could not wait so i had to serve it immediately.
