For mango shrikhand, the amount of sugar added depends on the sweetness of the mangoes. I used Alphonso mangoes and
they were sweet enough so I had to add little sugar. Also you can add cardamom powder for extra flavoring.
2 cups of plain curd would give you 1 cup of hung curd.




Ingredients:

1 cup Yoghurt (Hung Curd)
1 cup mango puree
1/4 cup powdered sugar

For Garnishing
Silver leaf
10 to 12 sliced or chopped pistachios (pista)

Method:
Preparing yogurt – Put a muslin or cheese cloth over a strainer. Pour the yogurt (curd) over muslin cloth. Place a bowl under the strainer to collect the excess water.
Next lightly squeeze the excess water from yogurt.
Move the yogurt with strainer and bowl into the refrigerator for overnight to drain excess water.


Yogurt will become thick in consistency, like a cheese ball.

In a bowl take the hung curd and whisk it till it turns smooth.
