Aam Shrikhand | How to make Mango Shrikhand



Now that summer is in full swing, it has opened opportunities to counter it with seasonal delicacies not only to beat the heat but also to keep ourselves happy with tasting delicious cuisines. One of the popular desserts of Western India is called as Shrikhand. It's nothing but a homogenised mix of hung curd with a hint of cardamom and saffron. This season I was waiting to get good variety of mangoes so that I can make AamShrikhand. 

My Man loves the mousse like consistency with has sweet-tangy taste. And the preparation is so simple that we have completely stopped buying store bought Shrikhand. It's India's answer to Ice-cream without any icing sugar or vanilla essence being used. Hope you all like it and try preparing it at your convenience.


Ingredients:
2 cups Curd or 1 cup Hung curd *(see the notes below)
1 cup Mango pulp
5-6 Sugar
2-3 Condensed milk
2 tbsp Pistachios
5-6 pods of Cardamom powdered
6-7 strands of Saffron dipped in 1 tbsp warm milk

Method:
* To make HUNG  CURD :Place a double layered muslin cloth over a bowl and pour the yogurt into the cloth. 

Bring the ends together and hang it over a sink for few hours for the excess water to drain. But pressing hard manually will not give the desired effect.  

Take a large bowl and add condensed milk, sugar, mango pulp, cardamom powder and saffron infused milk. Mix together to make a smooth and creamy batter. Make sure there are no lumps and sugar is dissolved. Add hung curd and mix well. 

Pour the shrikhand into serving bowls and garnish with pistachios. Refrigerate it for minimum 2 hours before serving. Your homemade AamShrikhand is ready !!
