Shrikhand Recipe
Are you a day-dreamer who dreams of food? I very well am. Sitting at my desk at office on a busy and tiring day, I closed my eyes for a moment and thought about that one food I wanted right then. And this was it! It had to be something which I had not eaten for long and something which can take me to another world. It had to be a dessert. It had to be something not so sweet. And yes, it had to be fat-free-full!
Shrikhand is a popular Marathi dessert made of hung and strained yogurt. The preparation is very simple but it needs time to get that perfectly strained yogurt. There are alternate ways like using store bought thick Greek yogurt or sour cream. I haven't tried them yet and prefer it the traditional way. Hope you enjoy the recipe.
Shrikhand Recipe
1 kg thick yogurt (curds)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp cardamom powder
a few strands of saffron
1 tbsp warm milk
a few chopped pistachios for garnishing
Hang the curds in a muslin cloth overnight or until all the water has drained out. Alternatively, you can use a cloth strainer. Make sure you hand it in a cool place.
Mix the saffron in warm milk and rub well until it dissolves.
Mix together the hung curds, sugar, saffron milk and cardamom in a bowl and mix well. You can also use a small hand mixer.
Transfer to a serving bowl and refrigerate. Garnish with pistachios before serving.
Serves: 4
Preparation time: 10 mins
