I caught a terrible cold recently which translated to the flu and all I could honestly think about was frozen yoghurt. The husband was dead against the idea (after all, I did call in sick!!), but the heart wants what the heart wants. Of course I had to compromise, so I didn’t make any frozen yoghurt but made some parfait which made me pretty happy! Needless to say, it really didn’t cure my cold.
You will need:
- Strawberries: 1 dozen
- Hung yoghurt: 500 gms.*
- Icing sugar: 1 cup
- Digestive biscuits: 100 gms.
- Butter (cold, cut into cubes): 25 gms.
Crush the digestive biscuits together with the butter in a food processor and keep aside.
In a food processor, blitz the hung yoghurt, strawberries and icing sugar.
Chill in the freezer for 30 minutes, and lightly whip.
To assemble, fill ¼ of the serving bowls with the digestive biscuits and top with yoghurt. Decorate with strawberries and mint leaves.
*To make hung yoghurt, add about 750 gms. yoghurt in a muslin cloth (or any cheese cloth) and gather the ends to form a pouch and tie the ends securely. Set the yoghurt in a colander with the bowl underneath. Leave it overnight in the fridge. Discard the drained whey in the bowl, untie and use as required.
