Shrikhand

Shrikhand

Shrikhand is an Indian hung yogurt dessert. This is a easy to make dish & tastes very delicious. This is a main dessert in Maharashtra & Gujarati cuisine, which is served along with Thali. 
I had this creamy dessert few times. But, when I tasted this dessert at one of my friends home I was taken back in to memories & then tried my hands on it. 


Shrikhand
Prep time-4hrs | Serves-2people
Ingredients 
2Cups thick yogurt {curd}
2Tbs sugar 
4tbs milk
1Tsp saffron 
1Tsp cardamon powder {elachi}
Few chopped almond
Few pistachios chopped 
Directions 
- Take a cheese cloth with yogurt. Tie it tight & hang it to drip the extra water in curd.
- Leave it for at least 3hrs. Squeeze any left out water from the curd carefully.
- In a small bowl add saffron & 1Tbs warm milk. Keep aside. After few minutes milk will change it's color to a light orange.
- In a bowl add yogurt, cardamon powder & sugar. Beat it smooth while adding 3Tbs milk along with saffron milk.
- Beat it smooth till sugar dissolves completely.
- Scoop it up into a bowl & refrigerate it for some time. 
- Garnish with nuts & serve chill.
Note
- Sweet was just enough. Adjust according to your taste.
- You can use a fat free yogurt for a healthy version. 
- Using of greek yogurt will reduce your the prep time.
