Aamrakhand (mango shrikhand) step-by-step recipe with photos.
Shrikhand is an easy dessert made with hung curd (or yogurt) and flavouring it as per your liking. The classic shrikhand is flavoured with cardamom and saffron. Hung curd is nothing but plain yogurt with all the whey drained out, making it very thick and creamy. This hung curd is then flavoured as per our likings.
Shrikhand’s origin can be traced back to Mahabharata and was first made by Bheem for Shri Krishna. It is a popular dessert in the western Indian states of Gujrat and Maharashtra.
I have earlier shared the recipes of classic shrikhand and strawberry shrikhand. Making this creamy, luscious, and healthy with mango is a perfect summer treat. A chilled bowl of aamrakhand is a perfect way of celebrating summer.
I always make shrikhand with homemade yogurt. But you may replace it with Greek yogurt too. Shrikhand is ready in no time if hung curd is ready.
Shrikhand is a healthy dessert as it has all the probiotics and good bacteria from yogurt. Try aamrakhand with poori for a heavenly meal.
This exotic, delicious dessert is perfect for both your celebrations and just weekday sweet cravings.
