Mango Shrikhand

Mangoes are my all time favorite. But being in London have very limited access to Asian Mangoes. Found some this weekend, had few like this only and rest planned to make some dessert. 

Its very hot here, I can very well understand the heat in India. So made some Mango Shrikhand, its very light & refreshing dessert. Flavored it only with mangoes and didn't add cardamom or kesar, as just wanted to highlight mango in it. 

Its very easy and quick recipe, also very well prepared in advance, just refrigerate and serve chill. I prepared it with mangoes, but you can add any sweet fruit, dry fruits or even chocolate. So without wasting any of the time, lets quickly run through the ingredients, following the method.

Ingredients :
  • Hung curd/ very thick yogurt : 1 cup
  • Mango Puree : 1/2 cup
  • Powdered sugar : 1/4 cup (adjust as per the taste and mango)
  • Pistachios : 1 tbsp for garnishing
Note: the video ingredients may vary, but I have used the same ratio made it a bit easy.

Method :
  • Beat the yogurt/curd with the help of a spatula or a spoon (please don't use a blender or whisk otherwise you will loose its consistency)
  • Add in powdered sugar and Mango puree and mix well.
    Fold in some pistachios and leave some for garnishing.
  • Serve it in a glass or a bowl, pour some mango puree on top and garnish it with some pistachios.

  • For hung curd - put the yogurt/curd on a sieve over a bowl. Put it inside fridge overnight. Morning you will see that the excess water is drained in the bowl and you are left with thick curd.
  • If you see any lumps, then pass the mixture through a sieve and it will be fine.
