Shrikhand


Shrikhand is one of the popular dishes in Maharashtra. And it happens to be one of my favorite desserts. It goes very well with pooris.

Ingredients:

2 cups fresh yogurt
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
1 tbsp milk
pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
few saffron strands
chopped pistachios for garnish

Method:

Mix the saffron strands, nutmeg and cardamom powder in milk and keep aside. Place the yogurt in a muslin cloth(or a thin white cloth). Tie the ends of the cloth together and hang it for atleast two hours. Once all the water from the yogurt has drained, pour it into a bowl. Add powdered sugar, saffron milk and beat well until there are no lumps and everything is well blended. Refrigerate for an hour. Serve as is, or with pooris.

Serves 4

thanks all for the comments..
@preeti, usually i soak the saffron in warm milk and mix it in, and thats when you get that orangish color..i skipped that step and garnished with saffron instead.
