    It is a dessert with a soft creamy texture. Check the dictionary.

    According to Google Translate, it's موس in Persian. Don't you have an English-Persian dictionary?

    Mousse is similar to pudding, but has a lot of air whipped into it during preparation to make it lighter and fluffier than traditional pudding.

    Re: do you want yogurt or chocolate mousse for dessert?

    Ah well, Google Translate isn't perfect but that's what it gave me when I asked it to translate "mousse" into Persian. Do you have an English-Persian dictionary? Does the word "mousse" appear in it?

    Yes, I have a Oxford advanced learner's dictionary.
    I've found "mousse" in it.
    According that book's definition "A cold dessert made with cream and egg whites and flavoured with fish, vegetables, etc.

    Re: do you want yogurt or chocolate mousse for dessert?

    That would be a savoury mousse. When you say mousse to most BrE speakers, they think of a dessert, like the one you used in your title - chocolate mousse. I don't think the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary (note the capitalisation) is an English-Persian dictionary. Don't you have a dictionary in which you can look up an English word and it tells you the Persian equivalent?

    For more definitions, bookmark OneLook - here is the page of entries for the word "mousse". You will be able to see the definition from multiple dictionaries.

    According that book's definition "A cold dessert made with cream and egg whites and flavoured with fish, vegetables, etc.
    A mousse made with fish or vegetables wouldn't usually be described as a "dessert." Salmon mousse, for example, is usually an appetizer ("starter" in BrE) or a snack item. Sweet potato mousse would be served as a side dish with an entree, like a traditional vegetable dish.
