Quick and easy low cal dessert with hung curd

Hello friends,

Its so difficult to stay of sugar, every time the craving comes back with an excuse to eat something sweet. But I have consciously made an attempt to avoid the white refined sugary products and opt for sweet healthy alternatives.  

The next best alternative is honey however I prefer to sweeten my desserts with natural fruits like mango, papaya, grapes that have equal amount of natural sugars.Raisin and dates are another good option. 


Today I have stirred up an oats granola mix with curd, apple and mango dessert. I also used some left over walnut cake I recently brought back from Pune. You can use some digestive biscuits or give it a miss if you wish.




Ingredients
( To make three potions of this dessert)

1 cup hung curd
1/2 cup roasted pressed oats ( I used a oats breakfast mix)
1 cup chopped mango
1 chopped apple
Left over cake


Method 

 1. To make hung curd - You need to put regular curd in a muslin cloth and let it hand till the water of the curd oozes out. The curd will thicken and become half the size.

2. In a blender, whisk the hung curd and mango pieces to make a paste. Do not add any water. This will be mildly sweet, if you want it sweeter you can add a tablespoon of honey.

3. Wash the apple thoroughly and chop it into extremely  small pieces.




4. Take dessert glasses of your choice, you can even take shot glasses or regular glasses. Add the cake crumbs to the bottom and press it with the back of spoon.

5. Add a layer of curd mix, lightly bang glass for layer to even out.

6. Now add a layer of oats and apple pieces. 

7. Repeat the layer of cake, oats and curd. Lastly again top with chopped apple and garnish with walnut.

8. Chill before serving and enjoy this yummy dessert



Note for variation

1. Add some chocolate to the curd, kids will love it.

2. Optional fruits to try with -
papaya and musk melon have good quantity of sweetness.

3. You can use a wine glass for setting the dessert.

3. If you don't have cake then use digestive biscuits.

4. The oats can be mixed with almonds and walnuts to make a crunchy layer.

5. No curd, use custard.

The options are endless. Its all about enjoying what you make and serving it with pride.

So enjoy cooking and Cooking with Sweetannu.
