Amarkhand/ Mango shrikhand

This is completely dedicated to my mother-in-law. She loves Shrikhand of any kind, unfortunately my father-in-law has total aversion towards it. So she never felt like making it nor eating it all these years. When I got to know this fact, next minute I went to the stores, got all the ingredients and made her this dessert. She was completely satisfied and happy:)


Full fat yogurt-4 cups

Sugar– 1/2 cup

Mango pulp-1 cup

Cardamom powder-1 tsp

Coarsely ground pistachios– 3 Tbsp


Take 4 cups of yogurt in a muslin cloth. Tie a knot and hang it overnight. This is a very crucial step in making good Shrikhand. Make sure to remove as much as water as possible. 

Add sugar and mango pulp. Adjust the sugar according to the sweetness of mango. Beat the mixture very well. (I used hand blender and blended for 12-15 minutes).

The consistency should be thick and creamy. Add cardamom powder and garnish with pistachios. Serve chill.
