Method of preparation:

Freshly grate the coconut or use frozen grated coconut.
Tie plain yogurt in a clean muslin cloth and hang it in refrigerator (tie the ends of cloth to the rack) for 6 – 8 hours with a bowl underneath to collect the whey. Alternatively, hang it above the kitchen sink for couple of hours and then refrigerate for an hour or so.
Remove the thick yogurt onto a mixing bowl, stir in mango pulp, sugar, cardamom powder, grated coconut and sliced almonds.

Notes: Make sure to make the yogurt extra thick since we are using mango pulp.
