Amrakhand recipe - How to make mango shrikhand

Aamrakhand in a serving bowl
Mango amrakhand recipe - Amrakhand is one of the popular Maharashtrian desserts made with hung curd, mango, sugar and the flavour is infused with cardamom powder. It is prepared during festivals and weekends, usually served with pooris. When it comes to making dessert I always prefer to make smooth and creamy amrakhand which is not only easy but also very quick to prepare. The hung curd is available in sweet shop, otherwise you can also make it at home by draining the thick yogurt through a muslin cloth. Hung curd is called chakka in Marathi. Whenever I have large quantity of yogurt in stock, I make hung curd at home. I prefer to use alphonso mango for this dessert, as it has thick and sweet pulp which is perfect for the thick, creamy amrakhand. 

Preparation time - 20 minutes
Cooking time - 0 minutes

  • 1 cup hung curd / chakka
