  • 2 pounds regular plain yogurt Full fat Desi Yogurt or Stoneyfield brand
  • cup mango pulp Ratna or Deep Alphonso Mango Tin
  • cup sugar
  • 1 pinch saffron


  • Line a large bowl with a double layer of cheesecloth. Pour the yogurt onto the cheesecloth, gather the corners of the cloth and tie into a bundle. Hang the cheese cloth so all the water can drain out (5-6 hours) or put some weight on the cloth and leave it overnight in the refrigerator, in a colander, so the water can completely drain out.
  • Empty thickened yogurt into a bowl. Mix well with a slotted spoon or whisk for 5 minutes until it is smooth. Stir in sugar and mix well for another 5 mins.
  • Add mango pulp and mix well until it gets smooth and creamy consistency (5 mins). Garnish with saffron strands. Chill for an hour before serving. Serve with hot Puris.



  • Don't have the canned mango pulp? Feel free to skip it and instead substitute it with a teaspoon of ground cardamon to make the classic Kesar Elaichi Shrikhand
  • Have Greek yogurt on hand? Skip the yogurt straining step and make Instant Shrikhand by using the Greek Yogurt in this recipe.
  • Try other flavors of Shrikhand, my mom often makes Strawberry Shrikhand, by substituting mango pulp with crushed strawberries
