Ingredients to make Kesar Elaichi Shrikhand /

  • 2 cups thick curd
  • 2 tablespoon sugar powder
  • Generous pinch of cardamom powder
  • Generous pinch nutmeg powder
  • 2 tablespoon warm milk
  • Generous pinch Kesar/saffron strands
  • Few chopped pistachios and almonds for garnishing

How to make Kesar Elaichi Shrikhand /

  1. Tie the yogurt in a piece of muslin and hang/place it for 4-5 hours or overnight over a bowl, in a refrigerator, to drain.
  2. Transfer the drained yogurt into a bowl. Add the sugar powder and mix well.
  3. Soak the saffron in warm milk, cool and add to the yogurt mixture. Mix well. Do not whisk or stir vigorously otherwise you will end up with runny and thin consistency of shrikhand. We want nice and thick.
  4. Now add cardamom powder and nutmeg powder and mix well.
  5. Add the dry fruits and refrigerate.
  6. Serve chilled garnished with almonds, pistachios and few saffron strands.

My Tip:

Always use the thick curd to make hung curd. Do not whisk or stir vigorously it will end up with thin consistency. You can make the hung curd in large quantity and refrigerate it. For mango or strawberry shrikhand, we need to add mango/ strawberry pulp and mixed fruits for fruit shrikhand. If you don’t like nutmeg flavor, you can skip that also. Always serve cool.
