MANGO SHRIKHAND / AMRAKHAND

Mango Shrikhand / Amrakhand is a refreshig yogurt based sweet dish. Shrikhand with mango – also called as Mango Mathho– makes it a very delicious one. This delicious and exotic dessert is very easy to prepare . It is often served with Pooris. It tastes best when serve chilled.

I hate store bought Shrikhand since my childhood. In childhood I never liked even cardamom flavour in my Shrikhand. My mom always make simple one specially for me. Slowly gradually I have developed likings for some particular flavours.

Now a days , me enjoying my yearly and much needed vacation at my Dad’s place. Sorry for not posting since long. Climate is very hot here too. But as far as my favourite Mangoes are in season , I am ok with it πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰. What’s your favourite Mango Dish ??

To make Shrikhand at home , is very easy. Just follow few steps and you are done with this traditional and exotic dessert. You need to hung the fresh curd , add sugar, nuts and spices of your choice and you are done. Here , We will give an extra and a delicious punch to this shri khand with adding ripe and sweet fresh Mango Pulp.

No Artificial Color or Flavourings have been used in the Shrikhand ..

.

I added Cardamom Seeds and Saffron to give an exotic flavour to Shrikhand. The amount of Sugar to be added depends on the sweetness of the Mangoes. I have used Alphonso Mangoes , which are great in colour and tastes too .

We need Fresh Curd as a basic ingredient for it. Even little sour curd can ruin the amazing taste of Shri khand.

Notes :

  • Use Fresh Curd only. Curd should be made from Full Fat Milk.
  • Mangoes should be sweet and fully ripe .

  2. Haahhaaa, like your suggestion of not leaving the curd or yogurt too watery. The first time I made mango shrikhand I did that and you can imagine the consistency. I was only 18 then! And back then no one had heard of yogurt smoothies. Lovely, tempting shrikhand.
