mango shrikhand: mango shrikhand recipe, amrakhand

mango shrikhand or amrakhand is a very common yogurt based sweet dish. we always have shrikhand with pooris. even plain, the mango shrikhand tastes so good. for making any shrikhand, always use thick yogurt. home made yogurt is the best. i have made the recipe with homemade yogurt.

i have used double the quantities of mangoes for the shrikhand and hence the mango shrikhand was not thick like the store brought ones. also i removed the yogurt after some 2.5 hours as i was in a hurry to make the amrakhand…. just coz, so that i can take the photos in day light.

i wanted a lot of mangoes in the shrikhand and hence this recipe. no artificial color or flavorings have been used in the shrikhand.

i flavored the shrikhand with some crushed cardamom seeds and saffron. the amount of sugar to be added depends on the sweetness of the mangoes. these mangoes are the local goan mangoes and they were so sweet. so i ended up adding less sugar.

lets start step by step mango shrikhand or amrakhand recipe:

1: first take the curd in a cheese cloth or muslin or kitchen napkin.
