Mango Shrikhand

Serves: 8. Prep time: 15 minutes active; 45 minutes total.

8 to 10 saffron threads
1/4 cup hot water
4 cups diced mango
1 cup farmer cheese
1 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup toasted almonds or pine nuts


Gently place saffron threads in the hot water and let steep for at least 30 minutes (or up to 2 hours). Place the saffron and water, mango, cheese, yogurt, honey and spices in a food processor and blend until smooth. Chill for 1 hour before serving topped with the toasted nuts.

This traditional Indian-style fruit pudding is a cooling finish to any spicy meal. Serve with wafer cookies, or garnish with chopped fresh mint.
