Mango Shrikhand or Mango Yogurt Pudding or Amrakhand

Kickstarting the #mangomania #2021 at @breakandbinge – if you have been following us since last year at the start of this journey, you would have seen our immense love for mangoes, esp the Indian alphonso mangoes! And we just couldn’t wait to bring back and share this love with you, well why not and well who doesn’t like alphonso mangoes!

#Shrikhand is a very popular Indian dessert made from hung curd or greek yogurt and is a very common festive dessert. We tweaked it with natural fruits flavours to create this yum dessert. There couldn’t have been a better start to our #mangomania than this mango shrikhand (or amrakhand or mango yogurt pudding) – yesterday marked the beginning of Hindu New Year called as Gudi Padwa, Start of the holy month of ramadan, many other regional festivals in India like ugadi, vaisakhi etc. So let’s ring into the new year or start the first #iftar with this #mangoshrikhand – super easy to put together and so flavourful especially if you can make with #alphonsomango

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups hung curd or greek yogurt
  • 1.5 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cup mango puree and half mango small cubed (for garnish)
  • ¼ cup each sliced almonds, pistachio, cashewnuts
  • 8-10 saffron strands
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder

Procedure:

  • Put the yogurt into a cloth sieve or a sieve with very very minute holes and let it drain overnight or at least for 5-6 hours. Best to keep it in the refrigerator while it drains so it doesn’t get sour
  • Sieve the drained yogurt into a container with the help of a spoon so that the smoothened and drained yogurt comes out
  • Take saffron and a few drops of hot water in a pestel & mortar and crush nicely till the colour comes out
  • Put this in the container as well as sugar and mix well
  • Add smoothened mango puree to it
  • Add cardamom powder and mix well
  • Chill in the refrigerator for a few hours and serve after garnishing with nuts and fresh mango pieces! You can even layer fresh mangoes in between the layers of shrikhand before chilling
