It’s always a good idea to have an easy-to-make dessert recipe handy. And in this season of mangoes, we have just the thing for you. Yep, baked mango yogurt!
The baked yogurt requires few ingredients (just 3 or 4, really) and little prep time, but tastes delicious and creamy. It’s like biting into a perfectly-made Baked Philly Cheesecake. And since it’s served chilled, it’s the perfect end to a summer-time meal.
Making it is just as simple: just mix the core ingredients (listed below), and bake for 15- 20 mins. Note that you shouldn’t overcook the yogurt as it firms up as it cools as well. If you do overcook it, it will end up tasting and feeling like dry paneer.
