Sweetened yoghurt, in its many guises, is a popular dessert in Bengal, where the sweet shops are full of little terracotta pots brimming with a caramelised yoghurt. This dish was first made at the Spice Kitchen many years ago, and this particular interpretation of a sweetened yoghurt is all mine. The unusual partnership of tomato and yoghurt works really well.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 teaspoon Ginger paste
220g sugar
250g plain yoghurt
160g sweetened condensed milk
60ml thick cream
1 teaspoon Saffron infusion
1 egg, lightly beaten

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  2. Mix together the tomato, ginger paste and sugar in a medium saucepan over a medium heat and cook for about 8–10 minutes, or until the tomato has softened. Spread out over the base of a 25 x 12 cm ovenproof dish.
  3. Mix together the yoghurt, condensed milk, cream, saffron infusion and egg in a medium bowl.
  4. Pour the yoghurt mixture over the tomato mixture and bake in the oven for 20–35 minutes, or until the pudding is just set. When the pudding is cooked, it will look smooth like a panna cotta, but it will still be a little wobbly. It is important not to cook it for any longer once it reaches this stage, because overcooking will make it curdle and the water separate. (The pudding will become firmer and lose its wobbliness when it is chilled in the refrigerator.)
  5. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour, then serve in dessert glasses.
