Strawberry Yogurt Parfait... it's crunchy too

At times, I feel the sudden urge to surprise the huss with some guilt free, romantic dessert. This happens once in a blue moon since most of the times, I experiment and he becomes the guinea-pig :). As I said my urge was at its peak when I had a box of fresh strawberries at hand. Romance and ideas played through my head and I came up with this yummy parfait. I would say that it is semi guilt-free as a few tbsps of sugar has been added but if you have greek yogurt in hand you can skip this. Since it includes oats, cornflakes and nuts, you get tat crunchy nuttiness which when combined with fluffy yogurt makes you want for more.

~What U Need*~
Hung curd - 1 cup
Strawberries - 10
Rolled Oats - 5 tbsp
Crushed Cornflakes - 5 tbsp
Honey - 1 tbsp
Nuts of ur choice - 2 tbsp
Sugar - 3 tbsp + 1 tbsp

How I Made it:
Chop the strawberries into thin slices. Sprinkle 1 tbsp sugar on them. Mix well and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Powder 3 tbsp sugar, whisk this to the hung curd. Adjust sugar to taste. Refrigerate till use.
Dry roast the oats till brown and you get the nutty flavor. Add the crushed cornflakes and add honey to this. The honey will start to bubble, mix well. Cool down this mixture.
Mash the strawberries with the back of a spoon. Toast nuts of your choice and chop them coarsely.

In a tall glass, add 2 tbsp of yogurt followed by the mashed strawberry syrup and then the cornflakes-oats mixture and then the toasted nuts. Repeat till the rim of glass. Garnish with strawberry.

Serve chilled. U can even top it with some ice-cream.
