Light, creamy mango and yogurt based dessert

Aamrkhand or mango shrikhand or aam shrikhand is a mango and yogurt based no-cook dessert. It’s the mango season! Mango the king of all fruits makes this dessert very special. It is light and creamy and the mango flavours ooze through from the dessert. If the mangoes are sweet only a little sugar will be enough to cut through all the flavours. Saffron is added for enhanced flavour and gives a deep colour to shrikhand. Hung curd or yogurt separated from all the whey is used to make aamrkhand. I also love making kesar elaichi shrikhand. Aamrkhand is generally eaten with puris or just as dessert. ... “Aam Shrikhand | Aamrkhand | Mango Shrikhand”
Soft moist milk sweet, a sure crowd pleaser

Sweets made with milk which are soft, moist and rich are liked by most. The kind of colourful and tasty sweets lined up in a sweet shop always attracts everyone. But they can be quite expensive to buy and are mostly reserved for special occasions. But what if these kinds of sweets can be made at home with simple ingredients. One such sweet is ‘kalakand’, it is one of my favourite sweets and I absolutely love making it. They turn out to be so moist and are very fresh when made at home. They have to be made ahead of time because it needs some time to set and tastes better that way. ... “Kalakand”
