About this recipe:A molecular gastronomy inspired dessert - cola air, miniature garden of chocolate soil, edible flower, lemon grass and caramelised mango. The ingredient we used to preserve the air captured is 'Lecithin' a product from soy protein.
Cut mango into a fine dice, then place on a serving plate. Caramelise the sugar in a hot thick bottomed pan, then pour evenly on the mango slice immediately if you are slow it will not give a smooth finish.
For Chocolate Soil: Microwave chocolate for 1 minute stir, microwave again for 30 seconds. Repeat the process till the liquid content in chocolate is evaporated and you get a texture similar to soil.
For Cola Air: We are using coca-cola for the fizz that gives an added feel to the air. Mix the cola with lecithin using a hand blender allowing to get more air infused.
Plate as shown in the picture. Quenelle the ice-cream with hot teaspoons, then place on mango. Place a heap of chocolate soil on the side, then plant a few lemon grass leaves and edible flowers. Place the cola air on top of ice cream but on a side. Serve Immediately.
