Frozen Yogurt with Passion fruit syrup

Passion fruit syrup (see notes)

There is no recipe as such. A delight for passion fruit lovers.
Hang yogurt in muslin cloth for few hours.
Mix yogurt and few tablespoons of passion fruit syrup well and place in refrigerator till frozen.
Scoop or cut into slice and serve with few spoons of syrup on top.

Take equal quantity of passion fruit pulp (with or without seeds) and sugar and simmer till the mixture is reduced and becomes thick. Cool and store in a glass bottle in refrigerator.
When you have access to large quantities of passion fruit (like when you travel to India during holidays and pluck fresh fruits from trees), take out the pulp from passion fruit and freeze them in a bowl. Transfer to ziploack bags and store till its time to pack them in a freezer bag and carry with you.
