Amrakhand / Creamy Mango Flavored Yogurt Dessert



Been away for some time from blogging for month and thought it time to treat you all with a wonderfull dessert recipe made with curd and mango, Amrakhand/Mango Shrikhand is a authentic dessert made in gujarati and maharashtrian cuisine. It is a semi soft, sweetish sour, whole milk product prepared with curd.

With the mango season just getting over it time you could try this dessert for your family. So enjoy it...

Ingredients
  • 1 cup hung curd made from 1/2 litre milk (3% fat)
  • 1 cup mango puree ( made with 1 big mango )
  • 3/4 tbsp sugar powder
  • pinch of nutmeg powder
  • 4-5 crushed cardamom
Procedure
Boil the milk and keep aside till it becomes warm, add a tbsp of curd mix well, let it rest for 4 hrs or till it sets, your curd is ready.

In a neat dry muslin cloth or any fine cotton cloth ( I used a old duphata) pour the curd and hang it for the water to stain.It will take 2 hrs, if the water is not stained yet then immediately put it on a stainer with a bowl below it and put in refridgerator so that it will not become sour.



Once all the water is drained take it out and remove from cloth and put it in a bowl.In a mixee/blender jar cur and put the mango pieces, add sugar and make a smooth puree. Now add this to this to the hung curd along with nutmeg powder and powdered cardamom. Beat well with a whisker until all the ngredients are smoothly blended.
Store again in refridgerator and serve chilled.

Note: You can also canned mango puree instead of fresh mangoes , reduce your sugar as canned mangoes would be sweetened
