Shrikhand Recipe is a popular Indian Sweet Yogurt Pudding with Nuts and Spices that is made during festivals, weddings or engagements. When we lived overseas and came home to visit my in-laws in India, Shrikhand and Puri was one of the first meals we ate, making this a treat to look forward to when we came back home.

During summer, the addition of mango pulp or pureed mangoes to Shrikhand makes another classic favourite known as Amrakhand. This dish is versatile and allows for the addition of fruit pulp, a range of Indian spices or even nuts.

Serve the Shrikhand topped with nuts, fruits like pomegranate, sliced green grapes, chopped mangoes and many more to enhance the taste and making it rich and festive. It makes a great dessert for parties when you cook an Indian menu.

How to make Kesar Shrikhand Recipe - Greek Yogurt Pudding With Saffron

  1. To begin making the Kesar Shrikhand Recipe, pour the yogurt into a cloth sieve or a sieve which has the tiniest of the holes.

  2. Take a large enough container where the rim of the sieve will sit on the mouth of the container. Place the sieve with yogurt to sit on the container.

  3. Place this container along with the yogurt in the fridge for 5-6 hours or overnight. Doing this strains all the water from the yogurt into the container below and makes the yogurt thick and creamy. The yogurt does not get sour as it is kept refrigerated.

  4. Remove the fully strained whey free yogurt from the fridge and discard collected the whey.

  5. Place another large clean container where the sieve can sit on. With the yogurt still on sieve; rub the saffron into the yogurt with the tips of your fingers until the color and flavor of the saffron get into the yogurt.

  6. Add the sugar to the yogurt sitting on the sieve. Now using a large flat spoon; briskly mix the yogurt mixture such that all the ingredients strain out through the sieve into the container below, making the yogurt smooth and well blended with the sugar. 

  7. With the yogurt mixture in the large container now; add the cardamom powder and whisk it well until well blended. Stir in the nuts and refrigerate well for 5-6 hours before serving.

  8. Serve the Kesar Shrikhand topped with nuts, fruits like pomegranate, sliced green grapes, chopped mangoes and many more to enhance the taste and making it rich and festive. It makes a great dessert for parties when you cook an Indian menu.
