Ingredients for Shrikhand Recipe

  • Yogurt 2 kilograms

  • Saffron (kesar) 7-8 strands

  • Warm milk 2 tablespoons

  • Almonds 1/4 cup

  • Pistachios 1/4 cup

  • Sugar to taste

  • Green cardamom powder 1 1/4 teaspoons


Step 1

Hang yogurt in a muslin cloth, in a refrigerator until all the liquid from the yogurt has drained off. (Approximately three hours.) Dissolve saffron in warm milk and set aside. Blanch almonds, cool and cut into slivers.

Step 2

Cut pistachios into slivers and powder sugar. Tie a clean muslin cloth tightly over the mouth of a large clean vessel. The muslin cloth thus acts as a sieve and should not sag in the middle.

Step 3

Use a clean thick string to tie the cloth over the vessel. Transfer the thick yogurt along with the sugar over the muslin cloth, in small quantities.

Step 4

For every cup of thick yogurt, add three fourth cup of sugar. Rub the above mixture firmly over the cloth, till the whole mixture is sieved.

Step 5

Add the dissolved saffron, almonds, pistachios and green cardamom powder to the sieved mixture. Mix well and transfer to a glass bowl and refrigerate till cold.
