Mango Shrikand / Amrakhand

Isn't it awesome when one could just go about making desserts with ingredients available at home, particularly in this season where Mangoes are easily available. Summer is synonymous with Mangoes and Mango Shrikhand is an inevitable dish to look forward to during this season. Agree?

So let's get started with this easy peesy dessert that can make even kids go ga-ga. Proof is the one at my home :)
1/2 cup hung curd or thick yogurt (If only curd available, then hang the curd in muslin cloth (and let it stay above a vessel to collect the residual water) for 3-4 hours.)
1 ripe mango
2 tsps cardamom crushed
pinch of saffron strands
1/4 cup sugar or as per taste

My way of making
1. Slice and puree the mangoes.
2. To this add the hung curd crushed cardamom, saffron and sugar.
3. Blend till smooth.
4. Pour shrikhand in individual serving bowls and chill them.
5. Let set for about 1-2 hours.

1. Make sure to use only thick yoghurt or hung curd.
2. If using sweet mangoes do adjust the sugar according to your taste.
