Sweet Tooth

Delectable Dessert

You can be the queen in your kitchen when you master this simple, yet elegant dessert. The humble, versatile yogurt, a must in every Indian household conquers even the skeptical food critic. My family loves sweet curd as we call it and I make it whenever I have large dinner parties and a menu to match. This recipe was given to me by my sis in law many years ago and has been passed on to many a fan. Goes well with any kind of menu.
The Recipe
500 ml home made yogurt
250 ml can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
Line a large strainer with a layer of cheesecloth. Pour the yogurt into the lined strainer, and set it over a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight (becomes like cream cheese). Grease a 9-inch dish which has a lid.
Discard the liquid that has drained from the yogurt. Place the yogurt into the bowl, and whisk in the condensed milk. Pour into the prepared dish. Cover with lid and steam in cooker or steamer for 20 minutes. Remove and sprinkle almonds over top. Refrigerate before serving. Watch it vanish and you will be the envy of all!
