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

I used homemade yogurt made in instant pot with organic whole milk. Tie the yogurt in a cheese cloth and keep it on a strainer for at least 8 hrs. I kept it for 24 hrs. in the fridge.


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.
