Aamkhand | Amrakhand | Mango Shrikhand Recipe

Aamkhand | Amrakhand | Mango Shrikhand Recipe

AamKhand or Amrakhand or Mango Shrikhand is popular Maharashtrian dessert made with hung yogurt/curd and mango pulp. I wanted to make shrikhand for long now and one fine day I end up with trying aam khand or amrakhand since I had fresh mango pulp in hand.  It's a easy and simple dessert with delicious taste.  

Here is some interesting facts about Mango ~ Mango is rich in a variety of phytochemicals and nutrients. The fruit pulp is high in prebiotic dietary fiber, vitamin C, polyphenols  and provitamin A carotenoids.



Mango contains essential vitamins and dietary minerals. The antioxidant vitamins A, C and E comprise 25%, 76% and 9% of the Dietary


Mango peel contains pigments that may have antioxidant  properties, including carotenoids, such as the provitamin A compound, beta-carotene, lutein and alpha-carotene, polyphenols such as quercetin, kaempferol, gallic acid, caffeic acid, catechins, tannins, and the unique mango xanthone, mangiferin,  any of which may counteract free radicals in various disease processes as revealed in preliminary research. Phytochemical and nutrient content appears to vary across mango species.  Up to 25 different carotenoids have been isolated from mango pulp, the densest of which was beta-carotene, which accounts for the yellow-orange pigmentation of most mango species. Peel and leaves also have significant polyphenol content, including xanthones, mangiferin and gallic acid.

Ingredients:

Curd/Yogurt - 1 &1/2 cup 
Mango Pulp - 3/4 cup
Sugar - 2 tbsp [to taste]
Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp
Almond & Pista - 2 tbsp chopped



Method:
1. In a muslin or cheese cloth transfer the curd and hang it to discard all excess water for 4-5 hours, I did for 30 mins as my curd normally is very thick.
2. Beat mango pulp along with sugar and cardamom powder (sugar depends on your taste bud and also on the mango sweetness)
3. Mix well hung curd with mango pulp.
4. Add chopped nuts and chill for 2-3 hours.
5. Garnish with chopped and serve or chill and serve.
