Did you know that Shrikhand is one of India’s oldest desserts – it can be traced back to 500 BC!
While it originated in Gujarat & Maharashtra, it’s now loved nationwide, and I can understand why!
This traditional Indian dessert is made summer ready, with sweet mango pulp, creamy yogurt, and delicately flavored with cardamom and saffron. It’s easy to make, and a real crowd-pleaser!
Absolutely perfect for a summer evening treat or a weekend brunch (or anything in between).
