Mango sorbet with yogurt parfait
A delicious mango sorbet with yogurt parfait and cashew nut praline. This has many components to make it look complex, but turned out to be reasonably easy to make and provided a unique blend of flavours.

Method

Step 1

For the mango sorbet, combine sugar with 90 ml water in a small saucepan and stir until sugar has melted. Add caster sugar and stir until dissolved. Mix in mango and lemon juice and set aside. When cool, cover with a cling wrap and put in the freezer for at least an hour.

Step 2

For the yoghurt parfait, line an 18 cm x 18 cm shallow tray lined with plastic wrap. Place eggs, egg yolk and sugar in a medium bowl and set over a saucepan of simmering water. Whisk until pale and fluffy. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Gently fold in yoghurt, vanilla and lemon. Pour into prepared tin and place in freezer until almost set, about 40 minutes. When almost set, remove from freezer and mark widthways into 6 x 9cm x 6cm portions. Return to freezer to set.

Step 3

For the praline, place cashew nuts on a paper lined tray. Place caster sugar in pan over medium heat and cook until golden brown. Sprinkle the nuts with chilli and salt and pour the liquid over the cashew nuts. Allow to set.

Step 4

Process praline in a food processor until finely crumbed. Set aside. For the chilli salt, combine chillies and salt flakes in a food processor until finely crushed.

Step 5

To serve, cut parfait into rectangles. Sprinkle the praline on a plate to create a bed for the parfait rectangles. Place the parfait on the praline. Spoon the mango sorbet and shape it by pressing it to the edge of the vessel. Place on top of the parfait and dress the dish with chilli salt.


My Notes
1. I use vanilla essence if vanilla pods are not available.
2. You may dress with a few slices of fresh mango.
3. The original recipe recommends using a ice cream machine to make the sorbet. Use one if you have access to it.
