Mango/basil compote

Make a nice fruit compote of fresh mango, passionfruit, and some Thai basil. Cut the mango in small cubes and at some passionfruit. Cut the Thai basil in very fine pieces and add to the compote. Just make it as you like the taste.

Neutral jelly

Use a ready to use neutral jelly to dip/spray the tartelettes. This is important to protect the tartelettes from drying out.


  1. Follow the methods below the recipes
  2. After baking the tartelette and cooling it down totally, fill the tartlet with the passionfruit cremeux
  3. Whip up the coconut cream and use a flat nozzle, to pipe the cream on the edge of the tartelettes. As a flower (see picture)
  4. Prepare the fresh mango compote and fill the center of the tartelette with a spoon.
  5. Place the tartelettes in the freezer for 30 min. and spray with a neutral jelly
  6. Use some fresh lime or coconut shaving for the ‘finishing touch’.
