It is a traditional Gujrati-Maharashtrian recipe which is widely served as a dessert or side dish with poori during festive seasons or as the perfect after meal sweet to enjoy with family and friends.

Mango Shrikhand or Amrakhand

For making any shrikhand,always use fresh curd.Homemade curd is always the best and I always make it with homemade curd.

It is nothing but a curd which is hunged with the help of muslin cloth for around 8-10 hours or overnight to drain out the excess of water.After this process of draining water the solids that are left behind is called the Chakka.

This Chakka is then flavoured with fresh mango puree,powdered sugar,cardamom powder,nutmeg powder and garnished with almonds,pista and few strains of saffron to make Mango shrikhand or Amrakhand.

Adjust the amount of sugar added on the sweetness of the mangoes.I haven’t used any artificial colours here.Also I have used the local mangoes here but it goes good with alphanso’s and kesar mangoes too.You can also check Elaichi shrikhand recipe.

RECIPE NOTE :

  • Use buffalo milk or any full fat milk for dense curd.
  • For best result keep the hunged curd on the lower rack of the refrigerator for draining.
  • Use strainer for straining the chakka.
  • Adjust the amount of sugar added on the sweetness of the mangoes.
  • I haven’t used any artificial colours here.

  • A mixer grinder can also be used but I find that the mixture becomes more thin and watery due to grinding in the mixer.
