Shrikhand is my one of the favorite sweets. I always eat Shrikhand with Puri. Amrakhand means Mango Shrikhand is very special in Summer because of Mango season.
It is basically Mango flavored sweetened Greek Yogurt. Greek Yogurt is our hung curd , thick curd removing water, and mixed with mango puree, becomes mango Shrikhand. In our Maharashtra, we add sugar and Elaichi(cardamom) to make more flavorful.I generally buy Shrikhand or Amrakhand from Chitale(a very famous sweet shop in Pune).But this time, I wanted to give a try on homemade Shrikhand.
From making hung curd, till adding the cardamom powder , I was enjoying this sweet making procedure.I got inspired to make this at home because of Master chef season 4- where Winner, Nikita made passion fruit Shrikhand. From that day I was thinking to make it at home.
This delightful sweet and dessert is simple and amazing. Homemade Mango Shrikhand is thick, creamy, soft, delicious and once you taste them you will love it.
I have used Alphonso Mangoes and they are sweet and with nice aroma, so I used less sugar into it. Cardamom powder adds a nice flavor to this Amrakhand. Try this summer , very sweet and delightful Amrakhand or Mango Shrikhand recipe.
