Jason Truesdell : Pursuing My Passions

A life in flux. Soon to be immigrant to Japan. Recently migrated this blog from another platform after many years of neglect (about March 6, 2017). Sorry for the styling and functionality potholes; I am working on cleaning things up and making it usable again.

scrumptious. jason, do you have an indian grocer nearby? he/she will stock alphonso mango pulp in a can. try kulfi with that next time, with the saffron and pistachios.

Yes, the better Indian markets in the Seattle area are actually in Bellevue/Redmond or out toward Renton, but we have a couple of options in-city that almost work. I've never made mango kulfi because it's so much easier to find in Indian restaurants here than other varieties, though I'm rarely in the mood to order dessert after a heavy meal. However, it's certainly on my list of things to do.

I've occasionally made a simple mango ice cream with fresh mangoes and a little lemon or lime juice, but that's been a few years, too. Since most mangoes in the US are rather stringy, that takes some battling: the pulp needs to be strained. But in late July sometimes the mangoes are just good enough.

I should play with the canned alphonso mango pulp, as I know it's much smoother in texture... it would surely simplify mango desserts.

Ok, i come here all the time and read your japanese cooking stories with great delight but had to leave a comment on the kulfi! It looks so great, I bet its better than the Pistachio Pistachio stuff by Ben & Jerrys. :)
