Shrikarani/Seekarane...a simple Mango delight!!!

Print Friendly and PDF
I know you all might have got confused with the name,even I dont have any clue why it is called with that name but all I know that it is such a delicious dish which we always enjoy through out the summer season.It needs very less ingredients and takes just a couple of minutes to prepare and tastes best when paired with hot chapathis smeared with ghee.The mango chunks with cardamom flavor in every bite takes us to heaven,if we run this mixture in mixie it will turn into mango Milkshake.But believe me this chunky mango delight goes very well with hot chapathis,this does not taste good with rotis. I prepare this one I do not require any side dish for my chapathis.

Ingredients:
2 ripen Mangoes(Preferably Alphonso,other mangoes also do well)
1/4 cup Milk,boiled and cooled
5-6 tbsp Sugar(adjust according to taste)
1/2 tsp Elaichi Powder

Method:
  • Clean and remove the outer layer of Mangoes and finely chop it.Mash half the portion of chopped mangoes with a spoon slightly,hand does a better job here.
  • Mix sugar and milk until the sugar is melted completely.
  • Add mashed and chopped mangoes and Elaichi powder to it and mix well.
  • Chill it for half an hour in refrigerator.
Serve it cold as a dessert or a side dish with hot hot chapathis.

Enjoy the Summer with this simple and delicious dish like me...!!

I am sending this "FF: Summer Treat" event started by Priti,

Aparna said...

I guess this is a cross between a milkshake and a shrikhand sort of thing. Whatever it is, it has mango and looks delicious. I wouldn't even need the chappathi with it. :)

I agree with Aparna.....i too don't need any accomplishment with it...i love to indulge right in...looks divine....

Shravani said...
