Amrakhand (Mango Shrikhand)


 Amrakhand is nothing but Aam(mangoes) and shrikhand. Amrakhand (Mango Shrikhand) is a Indian sweet/dessert dish made from strained curd (yogurt) and mango pulp. This sweet dish is from  Maharashtrian and Gujarati cuisine. It is one of the simplest and easy dish. This is best suited with Poori. The curd can be prepared at home or we can use ready yogurt. The dry fruits  added to it makes a delicious taste.  . The amrakhand shown here  is prepared from home made curd. It can be prepared during festivals. Try it out for “Akshaya tritiya”.

Method:

Boil the milk and allow it to make warm. Once warm add the curd to it and keep it closed with the lid. It takes about 8 to 10 hours to make curd. Preferably night time. Once the curd  is ready take a muslin cloth and pour all the curd in to cloth and tie it tightly and hang  it so that all the water present in the curd will be strained out. It takes around 2 to 3 hours. Now the strained curd or the thick curd what we get is called “chakka”.
