How To Make Mango Shrikhand!

Mango shrikhand is a deliciously sweet and fruity take on an Indian classic. Incredibly simple to make and containing just a handful of ingredients, Alphonso mango shrikhand is an easy dessert to whip up in no time at all!

Traditionally, shrikhand recipes can be arduous and lengthy, with original recipes commonly requiring yoghurt to be strained, hung and drained in a muslin cloth for 3 to 4 hours in order for the yoghurt to thicken and turn sour. We’ve slightly altered the process in order to make our recipe quick, easy and no fuss, taking less than 10 minutes from start to spoon!

Using Red Rickshaw’s finest Alphonso mangoes, our mango shrikhand recipe is guaranteed to go down a storm! Light, refreshing, sweet and bursting with flavour, this is the perfect to wow your family and friends while taking no effort at all!
