Amrakhand recipe | How to make mango shrikhand – mango dessert recipes

        This is one of my favourite desserts. Its more popular in Maharashtra and Gujarat though its available commercially everywhere nowadays. Being in Maharashtra , I have had this right from my childhood and always loved it. I dont remember my mom making this ever. But we used to have at our friend’s place. It used to be available in small sweet shops and later popular brands also started selling them. I made plain shrikhand for the first time five years back when I started this blog and even blogged about it , later removed the post as I was not satisfied with pictures.


I have always wanted to do a post on this with step by step pictures. And now as mangoes are in season, I thought of making the variation. I just served it as a dessert. It was delicious as usual.

Its actually very easy to make even large quantities of this and serve it during get togethers. If you plan this for a party, hang the curd overnight and make the shrikhand next morning. Store it in refrigerator until use and serve it chilled.
