Shrikhand / Sweetened Yogurt.

Although Shrikhand is not a typical Goan sweet Ma made Shrikhand very often and it was a regular fare at my parents place.
It is a no cook dessert that is ideally eaten with puri. But we used to have it for breakfast with chappati. I know what a nice way it was to start the day with heavenly creamy shrikhand !!
2 cups yogurt,
3/4 cup powdered sugar,
1/2 tsp powdered cardamom,
pinch of kesar/saffron soaked in 1 tsp warm milk,
some chopped nuts(optional).

  • Place a strainer in a bowl, line it with a cheesecloth. Put the yogurt in it and keep in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.
  • You should get about 1 cup of hung yogurt.
  • Add the sugar, soaked saffron in milk and mix well.
  • Sprinkle nuts on top and refrigerate.
  • Serve chilled and enjoy with puri or chappati !!

The more longer you drain the yogurt the more thick and creamy it will become.
Can add 1 tbsp sour cream to get the same texture and taste as authentic shrikhand.
Mix some mango pulp in the shrikhand to get Aamrakhand(Mango flavoured shrikhand).
