The June month challenge in the ‘Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge’ group was ‘Dairy’, suggested by Mayuri Patel.

And, as usual, using my two ingredients I have come up with this Mango Seviyan Custard for the theme contribution.

    Soothing and nourishing recipe is this dalia kheer. Inspite of it being a post pregnancy recipe we enjoyed making it this Sunday as the weather was horrible and it was lovely to have.
