Elaichi Shrikhand

Elaichi Shrikhand


Shrikhand is an Indian sweet dish made of strained yogurt.[1] It is one of the main desserts in Gujarati cuisine and Maharashtrian cuisine. Preparation of this dish is very simple but it takes some time to process yogurt properly.

To prepare shrikhand, yogurt is tied in a cotton cloth and left under pressure to drain. In the past, it used to be hung from a wall to achieve the desired thickness. Cardamomsaffron, and any other flavors are then added and mixed. It is then left in the refrigerator for the sugar to dissolve. The dish is served chilled.

I have been planning to make this dessert from very long, as hubby dear loved this. Yesterday when I had spare curd I knew where to use it..:p

Ingredients

-500 gram curd ( hung in a muslin cloth for minimum 4 hours) 

- 2.5 tbsp so icing sugar

- a pinch so cardamom powder

Process

1. Take a bowl add hung curd and sugar

2. Whip them together with hand beater for a minute or so.

3. Ensure not to overwhip/ mix. You will know when your shrikhand is ready once you see nice creamy and smooth mix.

4. Mix cardamom powder to the shrikhand.
