  1. Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler (or in the microwave).
  2. Heat the mango pulp with the coconut cream and when it’s hot, slowly pour it over the melted chocolate. Make sure you mix well while doing this, so you get a smooth cream.
  3. Add the grated lime zest and the grated coconut. Mix well and keep it aside to cool down.
  4. When at room temperature, pipe it on top of the mango and jasmine compote with a piping bag.
  5. Decorate with some cachous and serve.

Recipe Notes

The original recipe advised to prepare the ganache the previous day and keep it in the fridge. I did so and the ganache hardened! So, if you want a creamier ganache, do not put it in the fridge and serve it at room temperature (as per the above instructions).
