Mango pudding is a very popular seasonal dessert in India and South Asia countries, where the pudding is eaten as traditional British food. There is very little variation between the regional mango pudding’s preparation. The dessert is also found in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Macau and is often served as dim sum in Chinese restaurants. The fresh variant is prepared by the restaurant or eatery and consists of agar or gelatin, mangoes, evaporated milk, and sugar. In addition, fresh fruit such as mango, strawberries, berries, and kiwifruit, are occasionally added as a garnish. Served and eaten refrigerator cold, mango pudding has a rich and creamy texture.
