Mothers are full of Love and Laughter, 
Filling our hearts forever after. 

Mothers deserve this day of their own,
To be the queen of our heart and of her home!

Love you AMMA. You are the best thing that can ever happen to me. Blessed to be your daughter and would love to be yours in all births of mine!

A simple sweet dish with two favorite ingredients of mine, the mango and the curd. :)

Take a muslin cloth (thin cloth) and line it on a sieve. Pour the curd on it and tie the cloth tightly. Hang it over a sink for few hours for the water to drain.

After a couple of hours, keep the cloth with hung curd in the fridge for a night. 

Remove the hung curd next morning and collect it in a mixing bowl. Puree the mango with the sugar. 

Fold in the mango puree slowly into the hung curd. Do not over mix, the curd would become watery.

Soak the saffron in a tblsp of milk for 5 mins and add it to the curd mixture and mix slowly. 

Finally add the finely chopped mangoes and give a short whip. 

Serve chilled :)

I remember having mango shrikhand or aamrakhand for the first time in pune when we were visiting my cousins. Since then that yummy taste has haunted me in my dreams! But the sad part is that I seldom get aamrakhand or shrikhand anywhere without the cardamom! And I hate cardamom. Now your recipe has inspired me to give this a shot at home :)
