Mangurt!

Mango yogurt with cream and lime

Well, it’s just a fancy way of mango yogurt. This refreshing dessert is easy to make, delightful to have and not heavy on your waistline either. On glorious summer days, when all you want to do is relax in the shade of your veranda along with an absolute page-turner, this is a perfect companion.

Ingredients:
1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped into small pieces (It should not be too ripe. One that you can peel and diced without it falling to pulp)
1 cup hung sour curd (or yogurt as you like)
3 tbsp of rich cream (sour cream works well)
2 tbsp of icing sugar (add as much as you like in case you want it sweeter)
2 tbsp of honey (substitute as much as sugar with honey if possible. Keep tasting for the composition)
½ tbsp of lime zest
2 – 3 digestive biscuits, crumbled into bits
Roasted peanuts, chopped into bits

Method:
In a blender, add the chopped mango, curd, cream, sugar, honey and lime zest. Blend till the mango and sugar dissolves into the mixture and a smooth creamy texture is reached.

It is very important to taste check at this point. In case you like it tangy or a little less sugary like I do, you will be satisfied with the texture. In case you feel you would like it sweeter, add another spoonful or two of honey and blend again.

Pour the mixture in a bowl and cover with plastic film. Let it rest in the fridge for about 20 minutes. Once the mixture is cool enough, blend it mildly till creamy again.

Crush the digestive biscuit and place it at the bottom of a serving bowl, gently pressing it with your fingers. Place a nice dollop of the mango yogurt in the bowl and smoothen it out with a spoon. Add as much as you want. Crush another biscuit and garnish the upper portion of the mixture along with a few roasted peanuts.

Now sit on your veranda, reach for the page you bookmarked and enjoy! It is mango season after all.
