Mango Madness (Mango Lo Mai Chi & Mango Sago Dessert)

My parents recently bought a basket of mangoes. When I saw the mangoes, I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to try out some Mango-based dessert recipes such as:

I discovered these precious gems in Hong Kong’s HuiLanShan outlets and they became my staples each time I visited HK. You can imagine my delight when I saw a similar recipe here.
But then, the recipe (the skin) proved much harder than it looked. First of all, I had trouble handling the skin. It was so sticky that I couldn’t maneuver it at all. Gave up and made another type of dumpling skin using Japanese Glutinous Rice Flour, which was a much easier recipe. However, found that I am still left with quite a lot of fillings so I went back to using the prepared skin. This time, to my relief, I found the skin much easier to manage. Probably the key is to let the dough “rest” for a while before using it.
Here’s my end results with 2 types of skin:

I also had some leftover evaporated milk and mango juice. Added some sago and voila – delicious Chilled Mango Sago dessert that’s so good and refreshing!

Hi Val,
Welcome to my blog. Glad to hear that you find the recipe interesting. To "cook" the flour, you can either dry-fry th flour in a big wok or spread it out on a large pan and bake it in an oven till the it becomes very dry. Hope this helps!
