½cupYogurtI used greek yogurt Basically we need thick hung yogurt.
½ cupEvaporated Milk
Saffron - few strands for each ramekins
Pomegranate seeds or any fruits or nuts for decoration.
If using fresh mango, then puree the mango and talk about ½ cup of it.
Also if you are using regular yogurt, strain it and remove the excess water.
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degree F.
Also fill the baking tray with 1 inch of water and place the ramekins inside the tray.
Mix the puree, yogurt, evaporated milk, sugar, condensed milk and cardamom powder.
Taste it now and adjust the sweet according. (I kept on tasting at this point. It was so yum ;-) )
Pour this mixture equally in the ramekins and add couple of saffron strands on top.
Now bake this for about 35 to 40 minutes or until set. Basically when you insert a tooth pick in the center it should come out clean.
Now let it cool and refrigerate for about 3 to 4 hours.
That’s it. Aam Doi is ready. Decorate it with your favorite fruits and nuts and serve chilled.
Adjust the sugar and condensed milk according to your preference. Sugar can be skipped and condensed milk alone can be used instead.
Regular milk can be used instead of evaporated milk.
Bake for unto 30 minutes and then check with the tooth pick. Insert the tooth pick and if it comes out clean, remove it from the oven if not bake for 5 more minutes and check again. It took me about 40 minutes.
