Mango Shrikand | Amrakhand

Shrikhand is quite new to me. I haven't eaten this often. Though I am not a fan of these mangoes, yet when i tasted shrikhand I liked it. Now that the summer season is fast approaching this would be a good snack or a time pass item for the toddlers / kids.

Mangoes have started to arrive in  the markets and this season i am starting a mango recipe with mango shrikhand. This is a very simple and easy recipe with minimal ingredients. This mango shrikhand can be made with any variety of mango.

Mango shrikhand is usually served chilled. But I guess for toddlers we can serve it at room temperature.It still tastes wonderful.


Hung curd - 1/2 cup
Mango pulp - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 3 tbsp
Cardamom - 2
Chopped nuts - 1 tbsp


  • Hang curd in a thin muslin cloth for 2-3 hours until all the water is drained.Transfer this to a mixing bowl.
  • Puree the mango pulp in a mixer. Just scoop the flesh and grind it in mixer/blender without water. 
  • Add sugar, mango puree,cardamom with this curd and mix well.
  • Beat using a whisk until smooth and transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish with nuts. Cover and refrigerate until cold before serving.


  • Fresh mango works best, but ready made mango pulp can also be used.
  • Adjust sugar according to sweetness of mango
  • I used almonds to garnish this shrikhand. Pistachios can also be used.
  • This  is also a good option for dessert
