If you don't know already, mango is my favorite fruit and I love Mango everything! This recipe takes only 5 ingredients and 15 minutes to make! But it does require overnight cooling, so you need to prepare a day ahead, or at least 6 hours! Servings & StorageThis recipe will yield 5 ramekins, or bowls worth of Pudding. You want 10, just double all the ingredients. The bright part of this recipe, apart from it's color is the fact that these puddings can last for you for 3-5 days in the fridge. Gelatin and it's SubstitutesGelatin is a powdered substance used to add stability to desserts requiring cooling and to solidify it's liquidly texture. It's used in No Bake Cheesecakes as well, to stabilize and for it to not be runny. Gelatin is easily available in the market, you get both vegetarian and non vegetarian variants. I use the brand Solar and it works well for me. A substitute of Gelatin would be Agar Agar, which comes in both powdered form and in form of strands. If you're using the strands, make sure to cut the strands in very tiny pieces! Make a note that Agar Agar is stronger and thicker than Gelatin, so use less of it and bring it a boil. Follow the instruction on packet to make 2 cups worth of liquid. Homemade Mangoes vs Canned Puree If you have mangoes at home, USE THEM! I can't stress on this fact enough, the flavor of fresh mangoes isn't comparable to the canned produce. Simply, peel and chop mangoes and blend the pieces to make a puree out of it. However, if you don't have fresh mangoes, don't sweat it, go for the puree, put more of the condensed milk maybe. You are your judge! Some people like their desserts sweeter than others and depending upon the sweetness of mangoes you are using, you may change quantities of condensed milk or sugar to attain the desired level of sweetness of your taste palate and of those around you. Substitutes for Condensed MilkIf you don't have condensed milk at home, you can use granulated sugar as well. To do the same, marginally increase the quantity of milk to 1 cup and use ½ cup worth of granulated sugar. Let's get Mangolicious. Sorry, not sorry!

- Next add the Gelatin Water and mix well. Take it off heat and let it cool a bit. Once cooler, add & mix in the mango puree and pour the mixture into 5 Ramekins or Small Bowls. It can be 3 also, 6 also, depending upon the size of bowls you have.
