This recipe is from the Good Food Magazine. I'm all for recipes labelled easy in it. I love simple and easy recipes which have just a few ingredients. I made this twice. Once without baking as I didn't have an oven, I just added a little bit of dissolved Agar Agar to make it set (which didn't really set much) and the next time I followed the procedure in the magazine.
Of course I loved it, that is why I made it twice. I could never have imagined mixing curd and condensed milk gave such an awesomely delicious dessert.
Recipe Source: BBC Good Food India, Nov 2011
Preparation time: 15mins
Cooking time: 15mins
- ½ tsp freshly ground Cinnamon
- 1 cup Fresh cream
- 1cup Condensed milk
- 1cup Yoghurt
- 2 Oranges
- 1 Star anise (few for garnish)
- 2tbsp Sugar
1. In a bowl, stir together the cinnamon, yoghurt, cream and condensed milk until it attains a consistent texture.
2. Pour the mixture into ramekins and bake for 15 mins at 120 degrees Celsius. Turn off the oven and let it continue to cool in the oven. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
3. Zest one orange; avoid the white pith which gives the bitter taste. Keep it aside.
4. Peel and cut the two oranges.
5. In a sauce pan, add the orange pieces, zest, sugar and star anise. Mix well and simmer for 12-15 minutes until reduced.
6. Serve warm, spooned over the chilled yoghurt.
7. Enjoy the deliciousness. ;)
1. In the non bake version, I'd add more Agar Agar/China Grass to set it. If it doesn't set the orange compote sinks. Like in the picture below...
2. Just the mix of yoghurt, condensed milk, cream and cinnamon tastes great, just in case you are lazy to follow the rest of the procedure.
3. I baked the whole yoghurt mix together and then transferred it to serving bowls as I did not have ramekins or bowls in which I can bake.
Health and Nutrition:
- Yoghurt is low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Protein, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, Potassium and Zinc, and a very good source of Riboflavin, Calcium and Phosphorus.
- If the Yoghurt mix is not baked then you get the benefit of the pro-biotic bacteria which helps in digestion.
- Condensed milk and cream contain all the nutrition of milk but with a lot of extra calories. This yummy dessert is not recommended if you are trying to lose weight.
