    Spiced saffron puddings with mango

    "A clean, invigorating end to a meal. We’re still waiting for summer’s bounty of English fruit, so this dessert makes the most of the lovely mangoes that are available." Stevie Parle

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes, plus chilling
    • Cooking time: 70 minutes
    • Total time: 75 minutes, plus chilling 60 minutes 15 minutes

    Serves: 6


    1.2 litres whole milk
    6 tbsp caster sugar
    1 tbsp cardamom pods
    1 tbsp black peppercorns
    Pinch saffron
    3 leaves Costa gelatine
    3 ripe mangoes


    1. Set the milk over a medium heat, add the sugar and spices and bring to the boil. Transfer the mixture to a clean pan, leaving behind any skin on the milk, and allow to simmer for 1 hour until reduced by half. Taste the mixture: you want it to be sweet and spicy. If it’s not sweet enough, reduce further or add a little more sugar. Allow to cool a little.

    2. Soak the gelatine leaves in cold water for 5 minutes, then stir into the warm milk. When dissolved, pour into 6 ramekins or tea cups and chill for 4 hours or overnight. 3 Peel and slice the mangoes and serve with the spiced saffron puddings.
