Mango shrikhand

Summers is India is synonymous with mangoes and various desserts made with mangoes. I didn’t want the mango season pass by without making Amrakhand. Amrakhand is nothing but Mango Shrikhand. When you add mango puree to the basic shrikhand, it is called amrakhand.  For Maharashtrians, shrikhand it is a must have dessert for most of their festivals and during mango season, it has to be mango shrikhand. It is generally served with hot puris. 

Ingredients

3 cups Curds
1/2 cup Powdered sugar  (or as required)
|1 cup Mango Puree (preferably puree of Alphonso mangoes)
 few strands of Saffron for garnishing

Method

  • Place curds in a muslin cloth and hang it overnight or for 6-7 hours to drain out the whey from the curds. Tie it and place it inside the refrigerator to avoid  the curds going sour.
  • Transfer the hung curds to a mixing bowl.
  • Add powdered sugar, mango puree and blend well using a whisk or a hand blender.
  • Keep it in the fridge for an hour.
  • Garnish with saffron strands Served it chilled.

Note: I have not added cardamom powder or chopped dryfruits/nuts to the shrikhand as I wanted the flavour of mangoes alone in the shrikhand. But feel free to add cardamom powder and chopped nuts if you desire.
