Mango Crumble

We are at the fag end of Mango season and busy picking the last few mangoes off from the shelves of fruit markets.Every summer it is the same old story.We like eating mangoes as is and never get enough of it,but by the time  the season ends,I panic and start thinking of ways to cook/bake with it for the kitchen as well as for the blog:)
Mango Crumble

Strangely,this year there was no upkari or gojju since all we could buy this year was Banganapally(my fav) and Alphonso which are not suitable for curries.There were lots of lassis and milkshakes though.

I remembered this recipe from my baking bible Baking from My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.The original recipe is a Tropical Fruits Crumble which has Mangoes and Bananas.I tweaked the recipe and the quantity to make enough crumble for 3-4 people using one big Mango.Love the combo of Mangoes with Ginger and it was perfect for this recipe too.

Preheat the oven to 180C.
Mango Crumble-step5 
Pour the mango mix into four ramekins or a single pie-dish.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or till the fruit starts bubbling and the topping is a pretty golden brown.
Serve warm.
Mango Crumble

  • This recipe makes enough crumble for 3-4 people.Though it tastes great on its own,I served it with some Mango ice-cream on the side and it was pure mango heaven!
  • The flavor of ginger is not overpowering,in fact it complements the sweetness of the mango and crumble and makes for a perfect after-meal dessert.
  • The original recipe calls for mangoes and bananas and uses lime juice and zest too along with ginger.You could try it out for a different flavor combination.
