Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 3 cups Greek yoghurt
  • ¼ - ½ cup icing sugar, or as required
  • 2 tablespoons pistachios
  • 4 almonds
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 10 strands saffron
  • 1 tablespoon warm milk
  • 1 cup fresh mango puree
For garnish
  • a few cubes of fresh mango
  • pistachios and almonds
Instructions
Preparation
  1. Place yoghurt in a muslin cloth and hang overnight or for 6-7 hours to drain out the whey. (Tie it off and place inside the refrigerator otherwise the yoghurt will become sour)
  2. Soak pistachio and almonds in hot water for 10 minutes. Remove the skin and chop it into small pieces.
  3. Soak saffron in warm milk.
To make mango shrikhand
  1. Using a wire whisk or a spatula, mix the hung yoghurt with sugar for 5-6 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. (Shrikhand is all about texture, so mixing well is very important).
  2. Add the saffron soaked in milk, half of the chopped pistachio and almonds, mango puree, cardamom powder and mix well.
  3. Place in the fridge for an hour.
  4. Garnish with chopped pistachio, almonds and mango pieces.
Notes
This dessert should be served chilled.

Chironji can also be used along with pistachio for this dessert.
