Recipe of Shrikhand

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Plain Yogurt 6 Cup
Powdered Sugar 1/2 Cup
Powdered Saffron 1/4 Teaspoons
Crushed Pistachio Nuts 2-4 Teaspoons
Ground Nutmeg 1/4 Teaspoons
Ground Cardamom 1/4 Teaspoons


Hang the yogurt in two layers of cheesecloth over a bowl to catch the drippings. Allow it to drain overnight, or at least for 5 hours. Scrape the drained yogurt into a bowl. It should be thick and half the original volume. Add the powdered sugar and saffron to the yogurt. Beat with a whisk. (If you are using saffron strands, soak them in little water before adding to the drained yogurt.) Flavour the shrikhand with crushed pistachio nuts, nutmeg and cardamom.
