Shrikhand–Homemade Shrikhand

DSC_0857_edited-2 

Shrikhand is common & favorite in my home during festivals & functions. Generally I didn’t like sweet but my brother loves sweet and especially “Shrikhand”. My mom usually brings strained yogurt, mix it with sugar, cardamom powder and saffron milk. In India strained yogurt is easily available. My husband likes it very much. So I was thinking of making it at home. My friend suggested me to follow this quickest method. You can have Shrikhand in 30 minutes and here you go!!  My family loved it with hot puff poori’s.           

 

Shrikhand is traditional and authentic Indian dessert which is made from strained yogurt, nuts and saffron. This is very popular dessert in Maharashtra. Poori & Shrikhand is the best combo. A traditional Maharashtrian thali never complete without this exotic dessert. And its being served as dessert as well. Try out this easy and simple shrikhand on Dussehra festival and treat to your family!!

Notes:

  • If you want you can hang the curd in cheese or muslin cloth for 7-8 ours and then you can use it. This is a traditional method  of making Shrikhand.

  • Add any fruit pulp or fruit essence to give a extra flavor.

  • Adjust sugar according to your taste.
