Mango Shrikhand Recipe - Amrakhand

Mango Shrikhand
 I have tasted shrikhand few times along with North Indian thali in some restaurants. Shrikhand is nothing but flavored yogurt and Amrakhand/ Aam shrikhand  is mango flavored thick yogurt, prepared usually during mango season.  In north it is usually served as a dessert along with thali or meals. As mango season is still on it's go i am into for more mango recipes.

I prepared these amrakhand for weekend brunch and we enjoyed it to the core after a heavy meal. The flavor of saffron and cardamon blends with our tropical mangoes when served chilled.
