Yes mango season is here and we can’t forget to relish this golden beauty just like that or in the form of dessert. So here is one such yummy mango dessert that requires 0 cooking yet has little prep work still yielding delish output.

Though the dessert is very simple to make there are few things which we need to keep in mind while preparing it:

  • Make sure that the curd is not sour at all, as it will make the dessert taste sour.
  • Choose the mango when it is perfectly ripe and good color mangoes (red tone) yields appealing color shrikhand.
  • Quantity of sugar depends on the sourness of the curd and the sweetness of the mangoes (Malgova and Baigan palli variety is super sweet). Sugar can be substituted with honey also. At home they sometimes use condensed milk too instead of sugar.

So let’s get to the making of amrakhand!
