  1. Prepare the jelly to pack instructions, but reduce the amount of water by 75ml for a firmer set. Once set, use a sharp knife to cut into 2cm cubes.
  2. Put 200g mango into a blender and blitz until you have a smooth purée. Transfer to a bowl. Chop the remaining 150g mango into very small pieces.
  3. Put the ground cardamom seeds and cream in a bowl and whip to soft peaks.
  4. To assemble the trifles, divide half the custard among 4 glasses or bowls. Top each with 2 tbsp jelly cubes. Add 2 tbsp cardamom cream, then divide the puréed mango between each glass. Repeat with the remaining custard, jelly and cream, then top with the fresh mango pieces. Serve chilled.

Tip: Prepare the trifles a day ahead and keep chilled in the fridge, or prepare just the jelly and mango purée and keep chilled to give you a head start.
