A creamy combination of a fruit and yogurt is really like ice-cream. In a typical kerala tambram house you are often to find the combination of sweet fruit yogurt and even coconut in various combinations.This is a recipe I am not particularly fond of, yet it is one which my kids love and adore. Yes my love for yogurt is always been on the lower side. Nevertheless the children seem to love it on the hot hot sunny days and I can actually see it vanish faster than the plain banana itself. The recipe makes a good Prasadam /naivedyam on festival days. Especially on the days when the festival falls on a busy working day.. Tada.. You have something ready in less than 5 minutes. I have come to like it for reasons that it can transform into simple side, breakfast in a jiffy, naivedyam or even a Popsicle. As the combinations it can create have made me feel each time it’s a new recipe, I like it.
Pretty much, i have to do double and triple portions of this, some I freeze as ice pops and some say in as the yogurt cream. There are multiple variations in flavour I do with these, pretty much like a kid and match.. So take your pick and try it on as I discuss all of them.
Combos to create
To keep handy it may be honey, chaat masala, white pepper powder salt and cardamom powder. Now your mix and match is pretty much ready
Now for the combos
Chaat masala for a sweet spicy tangy combo
Honey and cardamom powder for Sweet version
Pepper and salt for a typical Raita flavour.
The base recipe remains the same
The one in the picture I have done is chaat masala one. The one that works most in my place as the raita. For popsicles the preferred taste is honey cardamom.
Guess what this is a great way to save your banana stock before they go all black too.
