The year 2012 boosted my confidence in trying out things I could never ever have imagined doing in the wildest of my dreams. Taking on food photography, styling projects, meddling with HTML codes, baking 100 plus cookies…yes, I did it all.
I wish to start the year with a sweet beginning and a hope for better tomorrow for everyone.
- 1 cup thick yogurt/curd
- ½ cup mashed banana
- 4 tbsp. Strawberry crush or pulp
- 2 tbsp. orange juice
- 2 tbsp. melted butter or ghee
- 12 digestive biscuits
- 2 tsp. Agar-agar powder
- 1 tsp. vanilla essence
- Fill all the digestive biscuits in a zip lock bag and crush them into coarse powder with a rolling pin. Add melted butter in the biscuit powder and mix lightly with fingers.
- Use thick yogurt or curd in this recipe for better results. While setting the curd add a tbsp. of milk powder for a thick yogurt.
- Sprinkle agar-agar powder in a bowl filled with orange juice and leave it aside for 10 minutes. Stir the mix lightly and bring the mixture to a boil, take off the heat and let it cool.

- Remove from refrigerator, slice it into wedges and serve this healthy and scrumptious dessert into individual plates.
