Purple Haze Yoghurt With Purple M&Ms

Purple Haze Yoghurt With Purple M&Ms

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.

  1. will definitely try this! maybe u can give it a different name- something exotic bcoz the preparation and photos sure look like that. Like twin hearts (since made after the wedding) or sumthing like that so that u remember the occasion.

    • Wow! lovely idea… in the meanwhile look forward to your suggestions of a name. Just tried to recreate the experience of the magical wedding that we witnessed – until and unless a beautiful moment is shared or remains un-inspired, what is the use of such an experience? What do you think?
