About Amrakhand- Mango Flavoured Shrikhand Recipe

This is a take off from the traditional sweet, refreshing Shrikhand. It is popular in Gujarat and Maharashtra. This is a seasonal delight, fresh mango puree is added to enhance the flavour. Soothing, cooling and light - perfect on the platter for summer :) This is popular in many Maharashtrian homes, cooked on Gudi Padwa that is celebrated in Maharashtra and Goa to mark the onset of the New Year as per the Hindu Calender.
