Mango Crumble

I had been coming across a lot of crumble recipes lately, the major core ingredients being apples and/or pears. I wanted to try this out with a different fruit and so used the king of all fruits with the mango season in full bloom. Sometimes less sweet mangoes were picked up from the market and so, rather than stuffing my mouth with them, I started trying desserts out of the stock.

The recipe in question was an outcome of a lonely girl taking a day off from work rumbling through the pantry ingredients due to her sudden sweet-tooth mood swing to make herself a yummy dessert with less & little ingredients and time. That was when she decided to make a mango crumble - a minimalistic yet moist n crunchy dessert. She would say that the combination was a hit to the palate with the crunchy sweet n flavorful crumbles complimented well by the mushy mango. :) And yeah I did this when I was pregnant and going to work.

Serves - 4
~*What U Need*~
For the Filling:
Ripe Alphonso mango - 1(Big)
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Lemon Juice - 1/2 tsp
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp

For the Crumble topping:
All Purpose Flour - 3/4 Cup
Oats - 1/2 Cup + 1 tbsp
Cinnamon Powder - a generous pinch
Salt - a pinch
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Butter - 2 tbsp
Milk - 2 tbsp

How I made it:
Peel and chop the mangoes into chunks. Now mix the mango with the sugar, elaichi powder and lemon juice and heat over slow heat till the sugar dissolves well and forms a semi-mushy mixture. You should be able to see visible mango chunks.
Preheat the oven to 350 F/ 170 C. Grease ur ramekins with butter. Half fill the ramekins with the mixture.
In a mixing bowl, add the flour, oats, cinnamon powder and sugar and combine well. Add the butter and start mixing with your fingertips so that you get a crumbly mixture.
Slowly sprinkle milk and mix with your fingertips to form crumbles. Do not knead into a dough.
Sprinkle this crumble on top of the mango mixture evenly. Gently pat down the crumble.

Bake this for 30 - 35 minutes or until the top becomes golden brown in color. I made this in MW convection mode and baked it for 15 mins.

Cool down for few minutes and enjoy with Vanilla ice cream or plain.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
