SHRIKHAND

Shrikhand is the traditional gujarati dessert served chilled in most of the gujarati thali. It is actually served with garama garam puries. One day v had a visit to our friend's place where v tasted shrikhand and from that day it has become our favorite dish. My hubby often does this at home. So enjoy chilled shrikhand and try it by your own.



Ingredients:


200ml yogurt.

220gm powdered sugar.

1tsp saffron strands.

1/2tsp cardamom powder.


For garnish:

Dry fruits as per ur choice. (If Badam is used, it is always better to soak into water for few min)


Method:


Tie yogurt in a clean muslin cloth overnight. Discard the whey.

Soak saffron in the milk approximately for 15 min or until it dissolves.

Place the yogurt in bowl and add sugar and beat until blended. Add saffron too.

Last but not the least add cardamom powder and garnish with ur favorite shredded dry fruits.
