Chef Kunal Kapoor's Mango Pudding

Servings: 8


  • 2 cups or 400 gm diced mangoes + extra ½ cup chopped mangoes
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk + extra ¼ cup
  • ¼ cup custard powder (vanilla flavour)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp oil
  • Handful pudina or mint leaves, chopped
  • Pudding mould


  • Brush a pudding mould lightly with oil.
    Keep aside.
  • Combine the diced mangoes, sugar and 1 cup milk in a blender.
    Blend to a smooth puree.
  • Transfer the puree into a kadhai or saucepan, over medium heat, and bring it to a boil.
    Lower the heat and allow the puree to simmer.
  • Meanwhile, mix the custard powder with the remaining ¼ cup milk.
    Stir well.
  • Take the mango puree off the heat and add the custard mixture to it.
    Keep stirring the mixture for a few minutes to ensure that there are no lumps.
  • Return the mango mixture to the heat and cook over high heat for approximately 15 minutes until it thickens.
    Take off heat and add the lemon juice.
    Mix well.
    Quickly pour the cooked mixture into the greased mould and refrigerate so it sets for at least 4 hours.
    After it has chilled sufficiently, take the mould out of the refrigerator and place a plate on top of it.
    Holding the plate, flip the mould over and gently tap to loosen the pudding.
    Serve cold with the remaining chopped mangoes and mint leaves.
