    Serves:

    4-6

    Preparation Time:

    20 Minutes + Chill for 6 hours.

    Cooking Time:

    0 Minutes + 2 hours further chill time

    Ingredients:

    3 x 425g/15 oz cartons of Whole Milk Plain Yogurt
    Pinch of Saffron Threads, pounded
    1 tbsp hot Milk
    75g/3oz Caster Sugar
    ¼ tsp Ground Cardamom

    To garnish:

    Fresh mint

    To serve:

    Fresh fruits such as Mango, Strawberries, Pomegranate Seeds

    Instructions:

    1. Pour the Yogurt onto a clean muslin cloth; bring together the four corners of the cloth and tie up into a knot. Hang the muslin over the sink or in a sieve over a bowl until all the water content has been removed. This takes up to 6 hours; so you can safely leave it overnight.

    2. Soak the pounded Saffron in the hot Milk for 10 minutes.

    3. Next, untie the muslin cloth and empty the strained Yogurt into a mixing bowl, then beat it until smooth. Add the Sugar, Cardamom and Saffron Milk along with all the strands. Mix well and chill for at least two hours. Serve in stemmed glasses; either in alternate layers of Yogurt and Fruit or top with the Fruit of your choice.
