Fruit Cream is an Indian pudding made with fresh fruits dunked in a sweet & flavorful hung curd and cream sauce.
Hung Curd is basically curd that has been drained of all water. To make hung curd at your home, tie some curd in a muslin cloth and leave it hanging for around 3-4 hours till all the water has been drained.
You can add almost any fruit that is available to you for this recipe. Fruits like banana, orange, grapes, cherry, strawberry, pomegranate seeds (anar dana), pineapple etc. go well with it.
Generally colorful & juicy fruits look best in this dish. Dry fruits like cashews & almonds can also be added to provide some crunchiness.
I also use saffron strands (kesar) in this recipe to give it a traditional Indian flavor. You can also add some cardamom powder (elaichi) to this dish.
Fruit cream is generally served chilled and is very enjoyable in the hot summers. It is often served in small functions & gatherings as part of Indian meals like poori sabzi; dal, baati, churma or thalis.
