How to make Strawberry Shrikhand
My Tip:I have used powdered jaggery in this recipe, you may add powdered sugar or honey instead, if desired. The quantity of sweetener used depends upon the sweetness of the berries. Do not use sour curd to make shrikhand and prefer fresh curd . Cardamom powder may be used to flavor the shrikhand if desired. If staying in very hot areas, hanging curd at room temperature for a long time will make it sour and you may need more sweetener , to avoid this, you may keep the curd to drain inside a refrigerator , by placing the cloth of curd over a colander and placing another bowl below it to collect the whey.
