The Purple Story
A beautiful wedding where the bride is in love with the colour PURPLE. An emotional church wedding followed by a beautiful wedding dinner amidst white silk linens & purple bows, silver & purple butterflies, bubbles & bubblies – signed off by purple M&Ms! M&Ms are perhaps the World’s most popular and colourful chocolate candy lentils and our family is besotted by them. Hence this recipe is my personal favourite.
Since the Z-SISTERS were left at home amidst hue and cry of utter unfairness and injustice, we decided to recreate some purple magic with the Purple M&Ms and the butterflies that came back home with us in the tiny goodie bags, from the magical wedding. Thank you, Dear Bride for choosing PURPLE – the setting was regal and absolutely mesmerising!
Following are the characteristics of all recipes doling out of our little hands, big hearth –
♥ Easy to cook
♥ Goes well both as a regular or party dish
♥ Children can easily help in making the dish (My two little sous-chéfs are aged 8 and 3 years!)
♥ And lastly, guaranteed to be tasty!
Purple Haze Yoghurt with Purple M&Ms/ Mishti Doi with Purple M&M
Category – Dessert; Cuisine type – Fusion Bong
This dessert creates a softy, yoghurt taste combined with crunchy M&Ms, the world’s most popular chocolate lentils. Here, we had 3 different shades of PURPLE M&Ms. You may create your own colour schemes (with the multi-coloured Gems, M&Ms, Skittles or whatever you get)!
The Bong Connection – Sweet Yoghurt or Mishti Doi is one of the most popular Bengali recipes. It is made of full cream milk and sugar and requires 8-10 hours if prepared at home. Why not incorporate the our recipe in the Bong way of preparing Mishti Doi? You’ll find here how to find how to make Mishti Doi at home. We could easily add the molten M&Ms along with the sugar while making the Mishti Doi in the traditional way.
For 1 serving –
Preparation time: 10 minutes (If you use ready-made yoghurt)
175gm of skimmed yoghurt (unsweetened)
30-40 pieces of Purple M&Ms of different shades of Purple (You can order them online)
Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup – 1 tbsp
White Refined Sugar – 1 tsp
Brown big sugar granules – 1/4 tsp
The magical purple M&Ms with special wedding messages printed on one side and ‘M’ on the other; silver and purple butterflies and purple crystal beads – all imported slyly from the wedding venue for my little ones!
As Prepared by the Little Messy Hands
Step 1 – Mix some brown big granulated brown sugar along with regular refined sugar (for giving the crunchy taste)
Step 2 – Mix 1 tsp of the above sugar mix to a bowl of yoghurt
Step 3 – Put around 25-30 M&Ms in the Microwave for 30 seconds
Step 4 – Mix the molten M&M into the yoghurt.
Step 5 – Pour 1 tbsp of Hershey’s Chocolate syrup in a sundae bowl and spread it like an expert (Haven’t you seen in the Icecream Parlours how they make chocolate sundaes?)
Step 6 – Pour the yoghurt into the chocolatey sundae bowl. And don’t forget to make lots of mess!
And here it is – your Purple Haze Yoghurt with Purple M&Ms is ready to be eaten. Or, your traditional Bengali Mishti Doi with an American twist!
The Final Setting
And here it is – your Purple Haze Yoghurt with Purple M&Ms is ready to be eaten. Or, your traditional Bengali Mishti Doi with an American twist! Creating dishes with children are like creating memories and moments that you are going to keep for ever. Do let me know how you liked this simple, but delicious dessert. Hold on to these moments – they pass away very fast!
