About Khajoor Shrikhand Recipe

Shrikhand is an all time favourite dessert in Gujarat. The simple blend of hung yogurt and sugar spiked with some nuts and aromatics never fails to please the tastebuds. Shrikhand is an absolute must during the summers, a season when we up the yogurt intake to escape the side effects of extreme heat. The Khajoor Shrikhand is a simple, refreshing and healthy dessert to make. The amount of added sugar can be curtailed to a great extent. I am not required to add any sugar in the Khajoor Shrikhand I make. The key is to use very thick chakka and good quality dates. The moist and sweet the dates are the better it is for the Shrikhand. Try to blend the mix with a balloon whisk so as to maintain the tightness of the yogurt. Chill the Shrikhand ( 5 hours preferred) very well before serving. It makes an ideal dessert for those managing weight or control sugar.
