Spiced Mango Pistachio Crisp -Goodbye to Mango Season

As you know I am not a loyal fan of mangoes. Ofcourse, thanks to blogging, I have started using them for baking. This time, I found that I had not done much with the fruit as I wanted to and decided to make a simple crisp or crumble as it is also known using cardamom and pistachios that go well with mangoes. Crisps are easy to put together and good for us except for the small amount of all purpose flour that is used for topping. This time I decided to take a cue from Deeba who went gluten free with the topping and I have used pistachios to make the crust.


Mangoes: 2 cups peeled,stoned and cubed
Cardamom Powdered: 1/4 -1/2 tsp (as per taste)
Arrow root Powder/Cornstarch /even pistachio ground: 1 tsp

Oats: 4 tbsp
Ground Pistachios:  3 tbsp atleast
Brown Sugar: 2 tbsp +as per sweetness of mango

Chilled Butter: 2 tbsp cut into small pieces.

Mix together the filling ingredients and spread in a lightly greased baking dish.

Mix the topping ingredients together and sprinkle as a separate layer on top of the filling in the dish. Dot the top with cut butter and bake in a preheated oven at 350C for 30-40 minutes until you can see the top browning. Take out and let it cool a bit before serving scooped up wth icecreams or whipped cream.

Can serve war,at room temperature or even chilled as per the season.

A simple baked fruit dessert with the goodness of oats and nuts.The one thing I felt was that you have to use atleast 3 + tbsp of pistachios to get a sharp pista taste. I am no lover of nuts so went for barely 2 tbsp  and mango and a hint of cardamom were the most forthcoming flavours in mine.
