Recipes for feast: Shrikhand (yogurt sweet )

posted in: English 0





To make Shrikhand, you require just 3 ingredients. Fresh plain yogurt (curd), powdered sugar, and any flavoring of your choice. You can keep it plain too.
Yogurt – Try to use fresh homemade yogurt. It should not be tangy. If using store-bought yogurt, make sure it’s fresh. Greek yogurt also works great if you are pressed with time. It’s already quite thick so you don’t have to hang it to thicken it.
Sugar – Don’t use the store-bought powdered sugar to sweeten shrikhand. It has cornflour added in it and it is best for baking. Powder the regular sugar in a blender at home and then use it.
Flavoring – I have used saffron and cardamom to flavor my srikhand. You can use any flavoring of your choice.

Soak saffron in milk for 3-4 hours.

Hang yogurt in a muslin cloth for 3-4 hours.

You can keep the cloth on a sieve kept over a bowl.

Remove the thick yogurt from the cloth in a bowl. This thick yogurt is called chakka.

Add powdered sugar, cardamom powder and saffron milk in the chakka and mix well. Transfer the srikhand in the serving bowls.

Garnish with slivered dry fruits. Chill in the refrigerator before serving.

There are many different ingredients that you can add to this sweet and create a different flavor out of it.
Mango Shrikhand is also popular as Amrakhand and I recommend that you must try it this mango season. You could even use fruits such, custard apple, strawberry, and make a fruit-based Shrikhand. Either puree the fruits and add in chakka or add chopped fruits to the chakka.
