Srikhand and piping hot Masala Pooris is one meal that is an all time favourite. Sweet and tangy, Srikhand is popular across Gujarat and Maharashtra. And, there are umpteen variations of Srikhand which one can make by using different kinds of fruits or ingredients. Kesar Elaichi Srikhand and Custard Apple Srikhand are some of the flavours of this chilled dessert that I really like! But, having stored some Mango Puree this year, I could make Mango Srikhand even in the month of August. Fresh and full of subtle crunch because of dry fruits, Mango Srikhand has this amazing seasonal charm which instantly pleases you! Also, it has such an appetizing colour that one cannot resist eating this fruity delight! Before you all ask, here’s a quick way to make Mango Srikhand.
