A mug treat is a comfort food  for all kinds of people. Kids will have more excitement when they have their favourite food in a mug. I made mango mousse with my leftover whipping cream and the mangoes which we can't eat as it is becoz of its sour taste. I converted it into a yummy mango mousse and got many appreciation from my family members.......

Really they won't easily appreciate my cooking as they like only traditional Indian recipes. But this mousse was a superhit they loved eating them.
