A creamy Indian sweet treat made with mangoes and hung yogurt. Easy to make and perfect for the season!
  • 1-1/2 pound plain yogurt
  • 2 ripe mangoes (preferably alfonso mangoes or any yellow kind)
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup condensed milk
  • pinch of saffron threads
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • slivered almond for garnish
  1. Start by making hung yogurt
  2. You would need muslin cloth/cheesecloth or any white thin cloth that can filter the water.
  3. Spread the cloth in a bowl big enough to hold the yogurt.
  4. Pour the yogurt, tie the loose ends and let it hang for at least 8 hrs over the sink or any other place.
  5. Once the hung yogurt is ready, make the mango puree.
  6. Cutting mangoes can get messy but it will be worth the effort. Check out this [link|http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/how_to_cut_a_mango/] to learn how to cut mangoes.
  7. Drop the mango pulp in a blender and mix it to a smooth puree.
  8. Add honey, condensed milk, saffron, cardamom and strained yogurt. Blend until it looks smooth and creamy.
  9. Pour it in a ramekin or serving bowl, cover with clear-wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 to 3 hours.
  10. Garnish with slivered almond and enjoy it cold.
Depending on the sweetness of the mangoes, you might need to change the quantity of honey.
