Mango Flavored Yogurt ( Aam Doi)

Ingredients :

Plain Yogurt : 2.5 cups / 500 gm

Sweetened Condensed Milk - 300 gm
Sweetened Mango Pulp - 5-6 tbsp

Method :

1. Take a cheese cloth, or a soft cotton cloth, pour the yogurt into it, tie the cloth loosely and hang the yogurt along with the cloth on the kitchen faucet / tap for 15 to 20 minutes or til most of the whey ( yogurt-water) has been drained. You can skip this stage by using Greek yogurt.

2. Take the yogurt out from the cloth, put it in a big bowl and add the sweetened condensed milk and the mango pulp. Mix all the ingredients nicely by using a spoon and check the sweetness. Pour the mixture into a oven proof dish. ( cup / bowl / pan )

3. Preheat the oven to 220 degree F or 104 degree C and place the rack on the top. Bake the yogurt for 10 minutes. Just check it if the top of the yogurt has set, and turn off oven. Cover the yogurt and let it be there in the oven for another 2-3 hrs.

4. Then take it out and put it in the refrigerator for couple of hours, serve chilled.

Microwave Method : 

 It takes only 4 to 5 mins to set the yogurt. Check it in every minutes until done. When it is done, keep it in the refrigerator for couple of hours and serve.
