How to make Srikhand

  1. Boil milk and let it cool.. not completely but it should be lukewarm.
  2. add curd and stir well so that it will mix well in whole milk.
  3. keep this milk covered and untouched for 4 hours curd will set.
  4. you will get nice thick curd after 4 hours
  5. spread a large muslin cloth in a big plate and transfer curd onto this muslin cloth .wrap up all the ends of the cloth and tie it tight with a string
  6. hang it in refrigerator and collect water in a pan or (keep it in a sieve , sieve in a pan and pan in refrigerator ) so that all whey water will drain out and curd will not sour.
  7. after 5-6 hours your 'chakka' (hung curd )will be ready.. transfer it into a big bowl and add sugar
  8. mix well and keep it for at least half an hour.
  9. now seieve it through muslin cloth but the procedure is very lengthy so i have used hand blender .
  10. add saffron strands chopped nuts cardamom powder nutmeg powder .mix well refrigerate and serve.
  11. see the creamy texture .
  12. taste awesome when serve chilled

My Tip:

always use fresh homemade curd or buy fresh curd that is sold in dairies not which is available in packs.
