Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 2 cups thick curd
  2. 2 tablespoon sugar powder
  3. Generous pinch of cardamom powder
  4. Generous pinch nutmeg powder
  5. 2 tablespoon warm milk
  6. Generous pinch Kesar/Saffron strands
  7. Few chopped pistachios and almonds for garnishing


  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.

  5. Add the dry fruits and refrigerate.
  6. Serve chilled garnished with almonds, pistachios and few saffron strands.
