A mango flavored 'Amrakhanda' (mango flavoured hung curd) is a popular sweet dish in Maharashtra and prepared on the day of 'Gudi Padwa', which is the new year for Maharashtrians. It is a sweet dish which is best enjoyed on this particular day with fried puris. The mango puree is mixed with sweetened Shrikhand (hung curd). I have added small mango pieces to this Amrakhanda to give it a different twist.

home made Curd 1 Ltr 
1.5 cup powdered sugar
1 cup Alphanso mango pulp
saffaron 1 tsp ( mixed in 2 tbs of milk)
1 Alphanso mango cut into small pieces

Take a muslin cloth and put curd tightly in that cloth for whole night
Next morning, remove the hung curd in a large mixing bowl and add all other ingredients expect mango pieces and keep stirring for 10 mins unless it is properly mixed. Mix the saffron in this amrakhanda. Use a hand blender to make a smooth paste.
Garnish with mango pieces. Store in refrigerator and serve with hot puris.
