Mango And Hung Curd Parfait

5 from 2 votes

This mango parfait with hung curd will be gone within minutes of the making! Trust me, it tastes absolutely delish! What’s more, it is very, very simple to put together. You can have these mango and hung curd parfait as an evening snack or make them ahead, refrigerate, and have them for the next day’s breakfast. It is, relatively, healthier than other cream-based desserts, too. What more do you need from a dish, eh?
Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 6


  • 2 medium-sized ripe mangoes peeled, the flesh cubed
  • 1 litre thick curd yogurt
  • Dried figs chopped into small pieces, as needed
  • Broken cashewnuts as needed
  • Sliced non-salted almonds as needed
  • Shelled non-salted pistachios as needed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 6 tbsp honey or as needed
  • 10 digestive biscuits


  • Place the curd in a muslin/cotton bag and hang it up over the kitchen sink. In 2-3 hours, all the water would have drained out of the curd, and you will be left with a thick residue. The residue is what you will be working with, for this recipe.
  • Once you are ready with the thick hung curd, the parfait takes just a few minutes to assemble.
  • Break the digestive biscuits into pieces and grind them to a powder, using a mixer. Keep aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the hung curd, vanilla essence and honey until smooth and creamy. All the three ingredients should be well incorporated together. Keep aside.
  • Take a medium-sized glass or jar and make a layer at the bottom using the sliced almonds, broken cashews, chopped pistachios and figs.
  • Spoon in some of the hung curd mixture you prepared earlier on top of this.
  • Make a little layer of the biscuit powder over this.
  • Add some chopped mangoes on top of this layer.
  • Make another layer of mixed nuts and figs on top, followed by a layer of the hung curd mixture, one of biscuit powder, and one of chopped mangoes. Finish with some chopped nuts and figs.
  • Fill up all the 6 glasses in a similar manner.
  • Serve immediately or after chilling in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. The chilled version tastes better.


  1. There are no hard and fast rules about quantities in this recipe for mango and hung curd parfait. Make the layers as thick or as thin as you please.
  2. You can add in other fruits, dried fruit or nuts as you please, too. I used whatever ingredients I had on hand.
  3. If you want to make an even healthier version, you could use sugarfree cookies instead of digestive biscuits.
