Saffron Yoghurt Recipe


 
 
 
 

Serves 4

For this saffron yoghurt recipe you need

3 cups fresh Plain Yogurt ( page 186 )
large piece of cheesecloth or a clean white handkerchief
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
½ teaspoon saffron threads, soaked in 2 tablespoons water
5 to 6 tablespoons honey or confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons slivered pistachio nuts

Saffron Yoghurt Recipe

Pour the yogurt into the cheesecloth and tie the ends together.

Hang over the sink for at least 8 hours; the longer it hangs, the thicker the yogurt becomes. A lined funnel placed over a vessel serves the same purpose.

When the liquid has thoroughly drained off, mix the thick yogurt with the whipped cream.

Add the saffron mixture, sugar and most of the pistachios.

Serve in a beautiful bowl, garnished with the remaining pistachios.

Background information on this saffron yoghurt recipe

Yogurt is an ideal summer food because yogurt is cooling and has a regenerating effect on the system.

In winter, yogurt's cooling effect can be balanced with the help of warming spices, such as nutmeg, saffron, cinnamon, ginger or cloves.
