Shrikhand is an Indian sweet dish made of strained yogurt.
It is one of the main desserts in Maharashtrian cuisine and Gujarati cuisine.
Preparation of this dish is very simple but it takes some time to process yogurt properly or you can simply use greek yogurt to prepare it :)
- Greek Yogurt: 2 cups
- Sugar: 1/2 cup (adjust as per taste)
- Milk: 2 tbsp
- Saffron: 1 tsp and some for garnishing
- cardamon Powder: As per taste
Warm the milk and add saffron to it, stir and let it sit for 5 mins.
In a bowl take the greek yogurt add the sugar and beat it till its all smooth and creamy. Should take about 5 mins.
I used the hand mixer, but you can always put in some elbow oil.
Add the saffron milk and cardamon powder to the yogurt.
Mix well till everything is blended well.
The shrikand is ready.
Pour it into the serving bowls and chill it for couple of hours.
Before serving garnish with saffron strands of your favorite nuts and serve it chilled and enjoy.
If you don't have greek yogurt, use normal yogurt. For that take plain yogurt, hang it up in a clean muslin cloth for 4- 5 hours or overnight and follow the recipe through. I always prefer greek yogurt as its quick and easy.
This is a dessert that can be made ahead of time or instantly.
So try it out and enjoy.
Till then happy blogging
