Aamrakhand..Mango Shrikhand


Belated Gudi Padwa and Ugadi wishes to everyone! We have always had Shrikhand Puri for lunch on Gudi Padwa, it's my moms ritual and one we absolutely loved. She would bring a big tub of Kesar Shrikhand from Saroj, the very popular sweet shop in Chembur. I will never forget its rich luscious taste and sneaking into the kitchen every chance I got and gulping big spoonfuls of it. I have not come across any other brand that I really like, so for the last few years that I've been away from home I've always made some shrikhand for Gudi Padwa. This year I made aamrakhand or mango shrikhand and it made a perfect dessert for the special day.
I used canned mango puree but you can also use fresh mangoes. This recipe is just a basic guideline, all the ingredients can be adjusted according to your taste. Use really thick yogurt, I used greek yogurt that I hung for a few hours to drain any whey. Adding too much puree though will affect the consistency of the shrikhand. I have added a lot of puree here since I wanted the mango to really stand out. So it was not as firm as shrikhand should be, but it was very 'mango-ey' and thats exactly what I was looking for. Finally adjust the sugar according to the sweetness of the mango and your needs. A delicious dessert ready in a few easy steps!

Aamrakhand
Ingredients:
2 cups hung yogurt
1 1/2 cups mango pulp
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom powder  

Method:
Now this is really simple. Just whisk all the ingredients together until smooth and well combined. Refrigerate for a couple of hours for the flavors to mingle. Serve with puris or chapatis or as dessert.
