Fruit & Yogurt Parfait

Yahoo! Finally got internet connection at my mom’s place….that means you can see regular blog updates from now onwards….Yesterday my friend called me to ask….what she can suggest to her 6 year old daughter to prepare at her school event, where the theme is to prepare a recipe without using electricity, gas and fire. No electricity means no blender, microwave, etc…without gas means no cook….without fire means no other source of cooking….Though the restriction sound simple….the number of recipes are also few….Keeping the age of the girl in mind, the first thing which came to my mind was Lassi…..as it is no fuss and no mess recipe….But lassi sounded simple to me….then I thought of simple chat with puffed rice…. made with sliced tomatoes, onions, chat masala, lemon juice, salt and coriander leaves….then dropped the plan thinking the puffed rice may turn soggy if the event last long….
Fresh fruit salad was there in my mind…but I thought many will go for that only…as it is easy…then came in sandwiches, bread and jam was other options which sounded so simple to me….and my friend was also not convinced with the recipe ideas….Wondering what I would suggest her to help her kid pass the assignment at her school… Thinking bit on healthy, simple, kid loving and easy to make recipe which should taste yum…I decided on ‘Parfait’. When I told her about ‘Parfait’….she was like…what…? Then I told her…Parfait is nothing but a layered dessert recipe…which is simple in making and flavoursome too. I told her lets make it healthy and kid friendly too…my friend was very happy to hear the new name of the recipe…as she was curious to know about ingredients and how the final product looks…I gave her good description of the recipe and the preparation steps along with ingredients needed…with a promise that I will mail her the pic of the recipe that evening….she hunged up the phone sounding much relaxed and satisfied…
Fruit & Yogurt Parfait
‘Parfait’ is one of the simple recipe which I love eating most of the evenings to satisfy that untime hunger….and sometimes in the morning as breakfast…when I want to settle down with something simple….. The recipe which I make mostly at home calls for simple fruits, dry fruits and yogurt mixed with vanilla essence and honey. Scroll down to check the recipe in detail…..

Fruit & Yogurt Parfait
NOTES:
  • As I had oranges and pomegranates at home…I used those in making. Choices on fruits and nuts are endless so play around.
  • You can even use flavoured yogurt’s which are easily available in market these days in making this.
  • You can even substitute ragi cereals with corn flakes or oats or muesli.
