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.


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


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.
