Mothers Day is celebrated to honour the warm and generous spirit of the mother whose unending sacrifice and support is the reason for your existence. A humble effort to reciprocate her unconditional affection and boundless, eternal love for her children .

There isn’t a single day that I don’t think about my mom and haven’t talked to her on the phone sharing every mundane detail of my chaotic life. There’s no one quite as special as mom..a better friend than anyone. For me every single day is Mothers Day.

 

 

When the theme for the 39 th Foodie Monday BlogHop was decided as Mother’s Day Special, I knew what I was going to create for my mom. Mangoes are my mom’s weakness and with mangoes galore this summer I decided to make a Mango and Coconut Mousse Tart dedicated to her. Though she is miles away from me her face lit up with joy when I presented it to her on the video chat.

 

 

A perfect no bake, no cook, eggless, mangolicious tart with as light as air mango coconut mousse in a coconut flavoured biscuit crust …a delicious combo and bursting with flavours. The Rosette design for the decoration was on a whim as I tried to replicate the design from You Tube and that’s what gives the celebratory look to the tart. Decorating the tart took the maximum time as compared to preparing the crust and the mousse.

Ingredients
Servings: portion
Instructions
  1. Crush the biscuits in a mixer and add melted butter to it and give one more whizz for the butter to get incorporated properly with the biscuits.
  2. Take a 9 " loose bottomed Tart Pan and press the crushed biscuits equally from all sides with your fingers to take the shape of the fluted pan to form the base and sides. Keep it in the fridge for 15 minutes to set and harden.
  3. Meanwhile heat the gelatine with 1/4 C water and dissolve well so that no lumps remain.
  4. Mix the mango pulp with the sugar and add the gelatine to it.Bring it to room temperature and add the coconut milk or cream to it and mix with a spatula.
  5. Whip the whipping cream with sugar till its stiff and standing in peaks.
  6. Fold in the cream with the mango coconut mixture with the cut and fold method making sure not to mix it vigorously.The mix will be of a thick consistency.
  7. Pour the mixture into the cold biscuit crust and level it from all sides.
  8. Garnish it with the sliced mangoes in a rosette design and keep it covered in the fridge for 4 to 5 hours or overnight for it to set properly.
  9. For the design, arrange the slices on the top starting from the center and fanning them outwards to mimic a rose petal pattern. There are lot of you tube videos which will help you replicate the pattern.
  10. Before serving carefully push the bottom of the pan to release the tart from the sides.
  11. Dust some icing sugar on the tart before serving .
Recipe Notes

Few things to be kept in mind before preparing.
1. For the whipping cream to stand in peaks, the bowl and the blades have to be chilled beforehand and the bowl kept in bed of ice while beating the cream.
2. If your whipping cream has sugar already in it then the amount of sugar in the mousse has to be lessened and no sugar to be added while whipping the cream.
3. You can halve the amount of gelatine if using coconut cream as its thicker in consistency and setting will be easier. If using coconut milk use gelatine as advised in the recipe.
4. Remember to cover the tart while its setting with a cling film or metal cover as the mango slices get a dehydrated look and taste if kept open in the refrigerator.
