I really didn't have to post this, and I have quite a few other posts from my drafts I can actually post, but laziness has caught on so much that I now think i bragged a lil too much on my previous post about not losing interest. I have been so busy whole of last week with a sick (literally) Ro to take care of. Yeah he's allergic to pollen and he was working from home which meant lunch, tea and dinner in succession, not to mention cleaning up which Ro would very nicely offer to do but I felt really bad and didn't let him. Well complaining about all that and rubbing it in that I am such an awesome wife kinda over powered the good i did, but anyways... ;)
Oh and also, right now I am brooding about a 46 quid haircut (I'm still crying here). I mean how difficult is it to find a salon in bloody zone 1 and 2 in London that doesn't charge you for your head also? I saw the bill and had to hold on to the railings to not faint (making a mental note: hide this months credit card bill). I'm still incredibly upset about that and i think il have to trek up to Wembley or some desi area to get a 20 quid haircut...sigh! what all a woman has to do to look good eh?
So coming to this post, its such a lame thing to put on a blog, but if i ignored the space, I will forever be lazy to do something about it. I made this some 2 weeks back when I got over excited after seeing mango pulp at the local grocers. I decided to buy the really really large can only to find out I didn't know how to make anything with mango pulp other than the panna cotta which, since id tried once already, didn't appeal to me any more. Story of my life...yes!
I made some mango ice cream and lost interest after the first two mixing intervals. Its still in my freezer. Then i thought id bake a mango cheesecake. I get better ones at Waitrose, so why bother? I was just left with the lassi option and in fact I actually forced it down Ro's throat saying its healthy (ya rt!). I still have loadsa mango puree left...anyone? any ideas?
Mango pulp- 1 cup
Chilled plain yoghurt- 1 1/2 cups
Water- just enough to loosen it a bit, say 1/4 cup
Condensed milk- 2 tbsp (oh ya baby, I went all the way out)
Sugar/ Honey- to taste/ optional (i added a bit cos i thought it wasn't sweet enough)
Mix everything together in a blender, serve cold with some ice cubes or chill in the refrigerator till you serve.
I picked up some juicy apricots the other day with the intention of baking an upside down cake. We ended up eating it just like that and I made the cake with canned ones instead; which was in a way good because it would have been a lil tarty if id used the fresh ones. Followed the same recipe as this. Served it as a dessert when we had friends over on Sat night, and as my luck would have it, it was more like a pudding than a cake..utterly moist and warm right outta the oven with the apricots adding that lil extra richness. Liked the pic i took, so thought id post it for TasteSpotting and foodgawker sake.
See ya later ladies.
PS: Don't they look like cute lil baby bums :)
