Coconut-Fried Mango with Cinnamon Rum Sauce

  1. 2 cups fresh orange juice
  2. 2 cups water plus 1 1/2 cups ice water
  3. 1 cup granulated sugar
  4. 3 tablespoons amber rum, such as Mount Gay
  5. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  6. 3 firm ripe mangoes—pitted, peeled and quartered lengthwise
  7. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  8. 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, plus more for dusting
  9. 1/4 cup cornstarch
  10. 1 cup packed sweetened shredded coconut (2 1/2 ounces)
  11. Vegetable oil, for frying
  12. Crème fraîche (optional)
  1. In a large saucepan, combine the orange juice with the 2 cups of water, the granulated sugar and rum and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat until reduced to 1 1/2 cups, about 30 minutes. Add the cinnamon and simmer for 5 minutes longer. Pour the sauce into a heatproof bowl or pitcher.
  2. Pat the mangoes dry with paper towels. In a large bowl, whisk the flour with 1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar, the cornstarch and the 1 1/2 cups of ice water until smooth. Whisk in the coconut.
  3. In a large saucepan, heat 1 inch of oil to 375°. Dip 4 pieces of mango in the batter and add them to the hot oil. Fry, turning once, until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Drain the mango fritters on paper towels and repeat with the remaining mango. Transfer the fritters to a warmed platter and dust with confectioners' sugar. Serve with the sauce and crème fraîche alongside.
