Shrikhand / Amrakhand

shrikhand

Amrakhand – A popular variation of shrikhand, which is shrikhand blended with mango pulp.Mango Shrikand is a popular dessert in Maharashtrian and Gujarati cuisine and is usually served with Poori.Preparation of this dish is very simple but it takes some time to process yogurt.My husband is a big time fan of Shrikhand ! We usually buy out from the market, but this time I wanted to prepare this on my own to give it a Home-Made Tag :-) and also for the much appreciation from my hubby.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup of Mango Pulp(any kind that is sweet)

  • Few pistachios or almonds to garnish
