Mango puree… 1000 ml
Sugar… .200 gm
Cornstarch... 110 gm
Cold water… .110 ml
Fresh egg whites.. .600 gm/ ml
Icing sugar… .180 gm
Bring mango puree and sugar to a boil.
In a small bowl, combine cornstarch with cold water using a hand whisk.
Pour slowly onto boiling mixture while whisking and cook for a minute.
Pour into a container and cover with a cling film and allow it to cool to room temperature.
When cooled whisk egg whites on medium speed until stiff and then add sugar mix for a minute and remove.
Using hand whisk smooth out mango base till you achieve meringue constancy and then fold in 1/3 of this meringue mixture and whisk further until smooth.
Fold in the rest gently so as to not lose all the air.
Pipe or spoon into ramekins or dishes brushed with soft butter and then fill with sugar and pour onto to create a surface for the soufflé to rise.
Bake at 190 degree C in oven for 5-8 minutes.
When cooked soufflé should be nice and high and soft in the middle.
Dust with icing sugar and serve with ice cream.
