Back to the Grind

Survival has been our key for the past year. We are slowly falling into a routine and hope that we get back to our normal lives soon. I have totally neglected my virtual space for the past year or so and trust me , there has not been a single day when I would get up and tell myself that ” Today I will blog” and the day flew by without me even thinking of opening up this page.  So much so I missed my beloved virtual space turning 2 in April , all the attention has been on our little one !

Not that there have not been times that I was having some free time to do what I enjoy doing the most ! Cooking and blogging !.. but my thoughts were completely elsewhere, a complicated pregnancy, moving homes , an unexpected trip back home , a midst of all this , a move to another state canceled after we packed up and sold all our stuff here ! Pure Chaos is what it was and I wonder how we did it together !

So here I come back and hope to keep it going . Here is a simple recipe for mango yogurt. I have stopped buying a lot of brands of yogurt after I realized that most contain gelatin . We have since started making them at home.

Mango Yogurt :


1 container of  Greek yogurt (16 0z)

pulp of 2 medium sized mangoes

1/3 cup whipped cream ( I used the cool whip brand , fat free)

1/3 cup sugar


Remove yogurt from container and place it in a couple of paper  towels or cheese cloth and keep it on a strainer and refrigerate it overnight or atleast for 6 hours , so that all the excess water is removed.

After the whey is removed , In a food processor , take the thick curds, mango pulp , sugar and whipped cream and pulse till all the ingredients mix well.

Serve chilled !

I had these chocolate tea cups so I served it in them , alternatively you can serve plain or you can serve with chocolate shavings .

This goes to Srivalli’s Mango Mela . Thanks Dear Srivalli  for accepting this late entry .

  6. It’s great to see you back. Sorry to hear about all of the chaos that’s been going on. I can definitely relate! Hope that things are better now with you. Mango yogurt looks phenomenal!! :)

  7. Ever since K had those choco cups at his cafetria he has been behind me to make them at home. I am like what!!!!???

    If I make that then I would put some cordon bleu ribbon and run around CA!!!!

    These looks absolute delish and now thats what I say “Back with a Bang!”

  8. I’m seeing a lot of greek yogurt in the blogosphere these days. Have to try it.

    DK, making these cups is quite easy than what you think. I have seen it in Food TV. It’s just melting chocolate, pouring it in a mould and chilling it for a couple of minutes in the fridge. For you, especially with so much patience baking all kinds of pastries, this is nothing.

  9. @ Parita , Sonu, DK Madhu.. I didnt make the cups, bought them in le gourmet chef. You find them in all shapes and sizes

    @ Vashaili, Kalai.. thanks .. Its great to be back and I hope to continue that is.. if my little one permits me :)

  10. Those chocolate cups are new to me. Making them at home might be a very a tedious and arduous task.
    Mango yogurt with whipped cream sounds fantastic!
    Lovely clicks.

  11. Yes Dee, I remember you mentioning it before.

  12. The yogurt looks yummy and the cups are really cute.If u find some time drop into my space.
