Aamrakhand...........as it is called in Hindi...is a rich and luscious shrikhand, which is a must-to-make in this mango season. Even otherwise, nowadays, very good canned  mango purees are available, which also can help us in making this. This Shrikhand can also be teamed up with Poories and Chapathis.
These Shrikhands taste just like the "Chobani" yogurts available in the US. It is such a simple affair, very easily these can be made at home, all the ingredients are always available at home. We needn't run to the store to buy any special ingredient.
I have made this Shrikhand healthier by omitting sugar totally and I have used honey as a sweetener.
 Please look into my Glossary for any unknown terms.
Please check my Hung curd sandwich, Kesar Shrikhand and Strawberry shrikhand.



Ingredients
Hung/strained curd from 2 1/2 cups fresh yogurt/curds
Ripe mango - 1, cut into pieces (I used Banganapalli variety)
Honey - 1/4 cup
Saffron - a big pinch, soaked in 4 tbsps hot milk
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Nutmeg powder - a very tiny pinch
Pistas - few, chopped, for garnishing
Grated dark chocolate - 1 tsp, for garnishing

Recipe Cuisine: North Indian; Category: Accompaniment/dessert
Curd straining time: Over night; Prep time: 5 mts; Cooking time: Nil

Serves 2

Saffron strands float in the hot milk


Mango pieces pureed, then the saffron milk also added, and then pureed again


The thick hung curd dropped in a vessel


Honey added


Cardamom powder and nutmeg powder added


Mango-saffron puree added


With a whisk, turn it into a creamy shrikhand


Chill it for 2-3 hours, then garnish with some grated dark chocolates (which are extremely good for health), and also some chopped pistachio pieces. Why you need to eat ice creams, when such healthy desserts can be whipped up in a jiffy at home?

Notes
* Electric beaters can also be used to whip up the shrikhand.
*Chopped mango pieces can also be topped.
