Keri ane Kesar Matho - An aromatic Indian dessert with Saffron and Mango

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Shrikhand is an aromatic dessert, much loved by every Indian in hot days or is included in most of the Gujarati thali's as a sweet dish ! In my family we are all eagerly waiting for the hot days, so we all can devour shrikhand with Puri and Roti...Matho is a very similar dessert or sweet dish like Shrikhand. In Matho you can add any kind of fruit, and it is slightly thinner than Shrikhand. Being a great fan of mango I always make this dish..
You can check out my Shrikhand recipe here..

Tip :-
for those who can not get hold of Greek yogurt, it is much more effective and time efficient to spread out the yogurt on a kitchen towel or a clean cloth between a load of newspapers. Add a heavy weight (maybe a couple of cookbooks) and the yogurt will strain much quicker than hanging it for hours.

You will need for Matho :-
  • 500g Greek Yogurt
  • 250 g Extra thick Double cream
  • 250g caster Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp saffron threads(soaked in a 1tbsp warm milk)
  • 3 cup thick Mango pulp ( I used fresh Alphonso Mangoes )
  • 1/2 cup Mango cubes for garnishing
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder

In a big bowl add yogurt and double cream blend it with hand blender for about 1/2 minute, now add sugar and blend it again for about 2-3 minutes. Add all the other ingredients with mango pulp and mix well with the spoon and leave it to chill in a fridge about 1-2 hours and before serving topped with mango cubes. Enjoy !!
