Served as either a refreshing summer dessert or a side dish with puris (puffed whole-wheat flatbread), shrikhand is a quintessential Indian dish. It is typically made with strained full-fat yogurt and mango purée; this version swaps in ripe peaches enlivened with Baraka cardamom ($15, diaspora.com) and Kashmiri saffron ($18, diaspora.com)
