The rather unusual combination of mangoes and ginger gives a unique and unbeatable flavour to this mousse. It is amazing how the shades of ginger, lemon and mint give a completely new look to the otherwise common mango dessert. Taste the mixture after adding all the ingredients, and balance the ginger and lemon flavours as per your individual preference.
