Shrikhand – Candy Flavorful Yogurt – Manjula’s Kitchen

Shrikhand is a traditional dessert of Western India. Plain yogurt is remodeled into an fragrant delicacy flavored with saffron and cardamom.

Recipe will serve 4.


  • 4 cups of yogurt
  • ¾ cup of sugar as wanted
  • Few strands of saffron
  • 1 tablespoon heat milk
  • About ¼ teaspoon crushed cardamom
  • 1 tablespoon sliced almonds
  • 1 tablespoon sliced pistachios


  1. Drain the yogurt – Put a muslin or cheese material over a strainer. Now pour the yogurt over muslin material to empty. Place a bowl beneath the strainer to gather the surplus water.
  2. Subsequent gently squeeze the surplus water from yogurt. Be sure to not squeeze out the yogurt.
  3. Transfer the yogurt with strainer and bowl into the fridge for no less than six hours to empty extra water.
  4. Yogurt will grow to be thick in consistency.
  5. Dissolve the saffron in heat milk. Milk will tackle the saffron colour, yellowish orange.
  6. Add sugar, cardamom powder, and saffron milk to yogurt and beat effectively until sugar dissolves. You could use a mixer.
  7. Combine in a lot of the almonds and pistachios to the yogurt combine and the remaining nuts will probably be used for garnish.
  8. Chill the shrikhand earlier than serving.
  9. Historically shrikhand is served with puri (fried flat bread).


When the water is draining from the yogurt, it’s instructed to maintain the yogurt within the fridge to be able to preserve the yogurt from turning into extra bitter.
