Mango Shrikhand

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).
