If you want to give fruit an unusual flavour, cardamom is a great choice. For a shortcut, use ground cardomom and you'll have a fabulous summer dessert in a flash.

Herbie's Spices New South Wales, Australia

Serves: 2 

  • 2 mangoes
  • 6 Herbie's Spices Whole Green Cardamom Pods
  • 2 tablespoons soft brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Peel the mangoes, slice off the two 'cheeks' from each one and set aside.
  2. Remove seeds from the cardamom pods and pound lightly to break up (it does not have to be a fine powder).
  3. In a frying pan, melt the sugar and butter, stirring frequently, then stir in the cardamom seeds.
  4. Make a single layer of the fruit, spooning the sauce over the top, and cook until just warmed through.
  5. Lift out of the pan into dishes, and serve immediately with whipped cream or ice cream.

Try different fruit

If mangoes are not in season, frozen mango slices can be used, or use fresh bananas instead.
