Doodh Keri

Doodh Keri is a absolutely delicious milk based dessert with the flavor of mangoes . It is not only flavored but even has chunks of mango pieces .

 

Last month we started a A to Z series as our regular BM theme . For January the alphabets were ABC , so continuing we have D,E and F for February . The A to Z has to have a theme and I have picked Pick one state and make Three . Last month I cooked from Punjab , this month it’s Gujarat .

 

Gujarati’s are very fond of mangoes and start eating them as soon as the mangoes hit the market not bothering how expensive it is . They need their Keri no Ras or Aam Ras at least once a day , but continue eating it in other forms throughout the day . They love it in their Fajeto , the mango curry . Mango Shrikhand is yet another favourite with them .

 

For today I have Doodh Keri which is yet another mango preparation which they love . Doodh Keri is nothing but a simple vanilla custard where mango pulp as well as mango chunks both are used, leaving behind a soft , smooth silky desert which tastes absolutely awesome . Divine and comforting . A hint of cardamom powder takes it to another level .

 

The key to a good Doodh Keri is the smooth texture of both custard and mangoes . Custard should be stirred continuously so that it does not form any lumps . Mangoes should be pureed and then sieved for adding the purée .The variety of the mango also makes lot of difference in taste . I have used Kesar Mango , which is one of the sweetest and flavorful mangoes . You can easily rank it next to Alphanzo . I did not have fresh mango , so used frozen , the taste was as good as the fresh ones . So go ahead and try this dessert , I assure you , it will be loved by all .

  1. This is such a delicious looking dessert, and so simple! I am wondering how it used to be made in the past, when there was no custard powder… I must make this when mangoes come into season…

  2. Such an interesting dessert Vaishali. Love your presentation as always.
    Can I use frozen chunks and puree and thaw it to make this!
