Poached Mangoes with Strawberry Coulis

My friend Beryl was an amazing and passionate cook who was very generous with her time and her recipes. She was warm and friendly, and really loved to feed people. She was one of my earliest food influencers. I got this recipe from her.

She passed away some years ago, but I continued to cook the recipes she gave me. Beryl used a thinned down version of her own blueberry jam as a topping, but I decided to try it with a strawberry coulis instead. The combination of the luscious mangoes cooked in spicy sugar syrup and the strawberries are amazing. It’s a dessert that can be put together very easily, even if you’re tired and pressed for time; serve it and watch the compliments flow in.

A Hint Of Spice

Hi. I am Padma and I am passionate about delicious food. Food is amazing in that it can take you to another place and time in your life just by the taste, smell and touch. Even a photograph evokes memories that lie dormant within us. I still remember a coconut candy that I used to eat as a child. Even though it’s not available now, I clearly remember the taste. It takes me back to my childhood pleasures as nothing else can. Being Indian, my palate is so used to spices. I started experimenting by mixing spices with European and other Western cuisines. The result is truly delicious. I love trying out different spices with different recipes. Sometimes I use the powder and sometimes I grind the spices with other herbs, onions, etc in the blender. The result is quite spectacular – a lovely fusion of the East and West. I hope you like my recipes and are inspired enough to try out a few of them. I would love to hear back from you.
