How to make Amrakhand or mango saffron flavored yoghurt
Amrakhand is type of shrikhand(Dessert) and made using mangoes and curd. It's ideal dessert in this hot summer and  quick to make  as well. Amrakhand  made using easily available ingredients and most favorite mangoes.As Its season of mangoes different type of mangoes can be used for making unique flavored amrakhand.I  like amrakhand using Alphanso mangoes most, but its tastes delicious using other types of mangoes  as well.
Other than mangoes it needs hung curd and  for making perfect hung curd 6-7 hours  time is necessary. Hung curd is very thick curd and for making it  Muslin cloth /cotton cloth is used.I used 1 litre of curd to get 2 cups of thick/hung curd.
