Mango Shrikhand

Mango shrikhand

This creamy delicacy is made from hung yogurt and flavoring agents such as saffron, cardamom. A few simple steps transform this into a delicious indulgence making it a choice for weekend and festive meals. Add fruit for added variety. A must try for all.

Ingredients: (serves 4)
1 1/2 cup Hung yogurt (see below)
3/4 cup mango pulp
Sugar to taste (I added 3 tbsp)
3-4 strands saffron in 1 tsp milk
1/4 tsp green cardamom powder
Handful almonds and pistachios to garnish
Mix all ingredients together for a few minutes till sugar combines well with everything.
Chill for 2-3 hours and serve garnished with almonds and pistachio.

How to make hung yogurt
Place a sieve lined with cheese cloth over a bowl. Put 2 cups of plain yogurt (yields 1 1/2 cups of hung yogurt) on the cheese cloth, cover and place in the refrigerator overnight (minimum 4-5 hours). All the water from the yogurt will filter out into the bowl leaving a thick creamy hung yogurt perfect for shrikhand.


  1. I've always wanted to make my own yoghurt. You made it look so simple! :) Thanks!
