Mango Pudding Recipe (Chinese Style)

Mango pudding is our family’s favorite dessert in summer. Especially in Australia, we can easily find juicy and sweet mangoes. Bowen is the best we think, so I usually buy Bowen mangoes to make dessert or just take them as fruit after dinner.

    Just put mango pieces into a food processor or use a blender to make puree. I think you don't need any water as a mango has got much enough.

  4. Just made this yesterday following your recipe. I added an egg and some sago into the mixture too, and my parents loved it, except some of the mango peices I added in were quite sour. Thanks for sharing your recipes! I also love your one for steamed eggs and milk dessert, so smooth (no craters) and tasty! :)

  5. Thanks Christine for your brilliant recipe! This was the third mango pudding I tried and it was the best by far! I added a bit more gelatine powder to make it set a bit firmer.

  7. To KhinU Khine,
    I get the mango jelly at supermarkets in Australia. Don't know where you can get some in the states. Can you find any in supermarkets?

  10. cooked this up for a family gathering and it was enjoyed by all. extremely easy but I found it a little too sweet. I may try a low joule jelly if I can find it in mango. I am new to your website Christine but think it is fantastic

  12. Hi, I really love this mango pudding of yours and I have tried to make it three times now. The first batch was very successful but the second and third batch of mine although the flavour tasted great, the milk kept on splitting everytime I poured it into the bowl with the mango jelly mixture, would it be the temperature of the milk? I recently tried to warm up the milk because I thought it might have been too cold hence it splitted, but the exact same problem still occurred.
    Thank you

  13. Hi! I was just wondering if I can just use plain agar-agar to make this instead of the Mango Jelly powder. Thanks

  14. To Anonymous,
    The end textures produced by agar-agar and jelly powder are very different. You still can use anyone of both if you like.

  15. First of, thank you for your recipes. They bring back some wonderful memories of my childhood and now I'm going to dust off my apron and try my hands on a few of them.

    Second, after reading the comments to this post, I just wanted to chime in to say:

    1) agar-agar has no sugar, so you'll need to add sugar to sweeten the mixture. But this is a good way to adjust the sweetness level: replace some of the jello mix with powdered agar-agar (beware that it is not a 1:1 replacement. Jello mix is mainly sugar with gelatin and flavoring, so you'll need less agar-agar [by wt] than jello mix. Also beware that some brands of agar-agar needs to be "cooked", and cannot simply be dissolved in hot water, so you'll need to adjust the recipe accordingly)

    2) my mom used orange flavored jello when she couldn't get mango jello to make this dessert. The flavor was pretty good, especially if you have good mango puree to add to the mixture.

    3) Mango puree can be purchased from Indian grocery stores.
