Amrakhand / Mango Shrikhand /Sweetened Yogurt with Mango flavor

Mangoes are readily available in summers and there are are many delicious recipes associated with the King of fruits,mango.I had earlier posted the Mango lassi,one of my ever favorite and now this is amrakhand /mango shrikhnad.Shrikhand is a sweet dessert with hung curd which is simple and with lesser calories compared to other desserts.Back in India,Lucknow is the best place where I enjoyed mangoes in plenty; shrikhand ,smoothies ,juices or lassi were a regular affair.Hope u will all enjoy this yummy shrikhand with your loved ones in this summer:-)


Ingredients
ripe mangoes 3
plain yogurt (hung curd/chakka) 2 cups(I used the greek yogurt)
saffron 2-3 strands
sugar as per taste (I used 5-6 tbsp)
cardamom powder 1/2 tsp


Method
-If you are using plain yogurt to make the dessert then,put the yogurt in  a muslin cloth/cheese cloth and hang it around the sink tap for 4-5 hours till the water is completely drained.The water drained yogurt is called chakka.Chakka is used for making shrikhand.I used the greek yogurt which is readily available here as it was an easier option.
-Wash,Peel the skin of mangoes and cube them removing the seed.Reserve a few smaller cubes for garnish.Put the rest in a blender along with saffron strands and blend until smooth.check it has any fibrous threads in it,remove them.
-Whisk the hung curd/chakka/greek yogurt until fluffy and light.
-Add the sugar in between and combine.Mix the blended mango pulp and mix again.
-Put the blended mix in the refrigerator  and serve chilled after 3-4 hours with mango slices on top.

Servings~ 4 wine glasses

NOTES
* You can add chiroli nuts or sunflower seeds on top as garnish.
* You can also top amrakhand  up on rasagullas and serve chilled !!
