Mango Gula Melaka (Palm Sugar) Sorbet

Phew!!! The current heat wave is really a killer. Certainly warrants for drinking gallons of water and taking cold shower. Using the air-con I guess is also significantly increasing our cost of living. Well, that is how its gonna be for the time being while we sincerely hope heavy rain drops will fall from the sky. Hot weather in return is when we yearn for a chill burst down our throat. Anything for the matter (Orange Fruity Sangria), what else can be a sheer pleasure except fruity desserts. However, we don't have to limit fruits for desserts only - (Thin Apple Pie), Mango (Mango Coconut Pudding & Mango Basmati Rice Pudding), let me give you options for savory dishes as well (Pineapple Salted Fish Curry & Salted Fish Mango Sambal).  

Additionally, nothing like the pleasure of using our local ingredients (Pandan Coconut Panna Cotta, Pandan Poached Pear & Coconut Mango Jelly). Sincerely affordable (Sago Gula Melaka, Dragon Fruit Coconut Jelly & White Fungus Gingko Nuts) and for this Mango Gula Melaka/Palm Sugar Sorbet (watermelon milk sorbet), you just need three ingredients. Three only please, this sorbet does represent our true punchy and no fancy frilly Malaysian flavours (Honeydew Sago Dessert). Just so slushy refreshing burst. 

1 large ripe mango
1 cup water
2 tbsp white sugar
3/4 cup palm sugar/gula Melaka
Remove skin and seed from mango.
Pulse the flesh for a thick puree and keep aside.
Simmer sugar (both types) with water for a thick syrup.
Cool it down and nicely stir with mango mixture.
Pour into a shallow tray.
Place in the freezer until 3/4 frozen.
Thereafter, add into a blender/food processor.
Blend until slushy.
Return to freezer and repeat the process 2 more times.
To serve, scrape sorbet with a spoon and pile into little bowls.
Optional - garnish with mint leaves.
