When the Mangoes are in season I really like to use them in my baking and non baking recipes. Adding a lot gives colour as well as the taste.

The best way to buy a mango is to simply use your nose.  A ripe fresh mango should have a fragrant tropical aroma that varies in intensity from very subtle to strong depending on the variety.  A ripe mango will be firm and give slightly to the touch so avoid mangoes that are hard, very soft or bruised.


Ingredients for the recipe……..

  • 2 Mangoes (1 for puree and 1 for decorations)
  • 1 Orange juiced
  • 250g Cream Cheese

Hi, I am Menaka. I was a teacher for 18 years and after migrating to Australia accidentally I found an amazing lady called " Mary" who directed me to become a chef.I studied 3 years while working and became a qualified chef. After I studied about baking and hospitality management. My son is very enthusiastic in video editing and wanted me to start recording my cooking.Thats the beginning of you tube channel "The Culinary Corner" I am a full time employee. I record all the videos by my self. As a child I started helping and cooking with my granny and I used to experiment and trying various cooking styles. That led me in this path very smoothly. I still try to experiment and adjust recipes to move with this busy and globalised world.
