This recipe uses a mango compote for the topping.
I chose fresh mangoes, blue berries and green grapes as my toppings.
How to use agar agar:
The recipe also adds the agar agar directly into the boiling milk. I read that it's better to dissolve it separately in water, and add it to the milk. It seemed to have worked beautifully!
I have been wanting to make this most sublime dessert ever since I tasted it a couple of years back, first at Maggiano's (which was unfortunately made with gelatin), and then at a restaurant in Paris, which was amazing, and had no gelatin!
This dessert is simple to make but looks very elegant, tastes amazing, and the best thing to do if you make it would be to keep the toppings simple and not too overpowering. Most recipes I found online had some sort of fruit compote as the topping, but I chose fresh fruits to keep it light.
If you do make it, I would love to hear what variations you came up with.
