Mango: I used store bought mango pulp but it can also be made at home by pureeing mango pieces. I used 1 cup and we liked it as it is. But for more mango flavor add another ¼ cup pulp.
Saffron: I soaked saffron in milk for few minutes and added it to yogurt. I would suggest soaking saffron for 15 – 20 minutes in hot milk and once the saffron flavor is infused into milk, remove the saffron strands and then add the saffron infused milk to yogurt.
