I wanted to try making Shrikhand at home from scratch for Piyush during summer. Shrikhand is a thick, delicious dessert made from strained yogurt. It can be had with Indian flat breads like roti, poori, paratha. I made Shrikhand with saffron, nuts & cardamom. It can be made with Mango pulp, only cardamom etc.
6 cups – yogurt
1 tsp. saffron
1 tbsp. warm milk
12 tbsp. superfine sugar
1⁄2 tsp. green cardamom seeds, crushed
1 tbsp. pistachios, almonds, chopped
Soak saffron in warm milk, and powder the sugar and cardamom.
Place the strained yogurt in a bowl and mix all the ingredient well with a whisk. Garnish with chopped nuts.
Shrikhand is a rich source of calcium, phosphorus, Vitamins B1, B2 and B12.
