Whats a good dessert to make after spicy rice starters and main?

Hi, I'm looking for quick and easy dessert options for a supper club I'll cook for. The theme is all around Jollof rice - a spicy red rice so both the starters and main are going to be rice.

Grateful for dessert ideas. I think something cold, refreshing might work but.... Thanks

Mango Lassi / watermelon granita or salad / I like the fruit salad idea too.

A fruit sorbet, fruit ice or granita would be lovely. What about Amanda Hesser's strawberry ice with condensed milk and whipped cream? https://food52.com/recipes...

Or if you are looking for something super simple like whipped greek yogurt and fresh seasonal fruit.

To cool thinks off after a spicy meal, I would go with a dairy-based dessert like kulfi (my current obsession).

I would do a panna cotta, unless your meal was particularly dairy-heavy.

Think texture..
Soft rice then to soft custard and sorbet?? Something with some dente.. A rustic fruit tart with a scoop of home made citrus sorbet.

A friend from India gave us this recipe & its fool proof - really good vanilla ice cream in a pool of mango puree. She told us to buy a can on mango puree in the Indian aisle/market because she says there aren't mangoes in the US that compare.

I just had osmanthus gelatin at dimsum and found this version with a layer of coconut. A world apart but I think this is great for a light, fun dessert. http://thedomesticgoddesswannabe...
