Mitha Dahi with mangoes and Thanks

Mitha dahi is nothing but sweet yogurt. It is a famous dish in Orissa and available in nice earthern pots. This dish is completely inspired by Suparna's mango shreekhand. I was drooling over her dish and thought of trying this mitha Dahi which has been on my list to try for ages. I had never made mitha dahi before but my other bengali friend M had told me to try this out. I searched on the net and found this easy recipe for mitha dahi which was what my friend had described too. I have modified the recipe a little bit, hence I have put it here again. The dish turned out awesome for the time and effort I put into it...
Sending this off to Shanti's sweet time event

Also would like to thank Padma and Hema for sending on this award to me... Thanks friends - always a pleasure to be thought of when you are receiving such great awards and sharing it with me.

I would like to send this this award to my all my blogger friends. But I see all of have already got the award. So enjoy your awards - you truly deserve it. Padma and Hema - I am truly honored.

1/2 can (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 packet of non-fat Evaporated Milk
1 and 1/2 cup plain yogurt
handful of cashew nuts broken up coarsely
1/2 tea spoon of ghee to roast the nuts
sweet ripe mangoes cut into tiny pieces

How to
Mix all ingredients well and pour into a flat pan. If there some small lumps in the mixture - don't worry. They even out fine...
Bake at 200 F for about 1 hr.
Cool and then refrigerate (for about 2 hrs).
Garnish with cut mangoes and roasted cashew nuts.

Serve and Enjoy....

How did it fare
The sweet dish tasted good both with and without the mangoes. But I liked it with the mangoes, else it was a little too sweet for my taste.
