This recipe was given to me by a dear Aunt of mine who loves in Kolkata, India. Her recipes have always been a hit whenever I have made them.
This light and refreshing mousse is the perfect dessert for summer, not to mention very quick and easy too. It’s hard to go wrong with this one……a lifesaver when you can’t spare much time for making an elaborate dessert.
