Mango Shrikhand is an Indian sweet treat made with fresh mango pulp, thick yogurt, flavored with aromatics like saffron, cardamom, and pistachio. Mango Shrikhand or the mango yogurt is a popular Maharashtrian delight, served with the main meal during the summers. The marriage of honeyed mango puree and the hung curd is in real sense match made in heaven and a pinch of saffron, cardamom strengthens the bond between the two.

The sweet and thick pulp of the tropical beauty is pureed to smooth texture then blended with hung curd, which in the native dialect called as “Chakka”. The condensed, homemade yogurt is hung in the soft muslin cloth in the kitchen at a certain height to drain all the excess whey from the yogurt, what remains behind is the supple, cotton-like chunks of pure white yogurt. During the hours when yogurt is hung, it gradually transforms personality from humble slurry liquid to soft cheese, which melts in the mouth.
