Shrikhand

Photobucket

I love curd and can say that I literally grew up feeding on them. I eat curds with my breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner :)

When I'm so biased to curd, a sweet made with curd can never miss to steal my heart isn't it?!!

I haven't made shrikhand at home before. My mil did this dish a fortnight back and it swept me off my foot. We made it twice already after the first obsession :) Simply tempting and lip smacking dessert :)

Worth craving or crying for!! :)

Ingredients:

Thick curd - 1 kg (make curd with 1 1/2 litres of milk)
Powdered sugar - 1 cup
Warm milk - 1 tblsp
Saffron strands - 10
Cardamom - 2

Method:

Hang curd in a muslin cloth (any thin cloth) and place it in a strainer and a bowl at the bottom to collect the weyh water. Keep this in the refregerator over night or atleast for 8 hours for all the water to get drained.

Soak saffron stands in warm milk for 10 mins.

Now take the thick curd in a bowl and mix powdered sugar, cardamom powder and pour in the saffron milk too.

Mix gently with a whisk until everything comes together.

Refrigerate and serve chill.

This quantity would be enough for 10 - 12 servings.

Shrikhand keeps good in the refrigerator for a week.

Enjoy eating a super delicious dessert :)
