A dollop of gooey, creamy shrikhand laced with saffron and elaichi, topped with mixed nuts, and served with steaming hot puris – that’s something to yearn for! Now, with this quick shrikhand recipe, you don’t need to yearn for it; you can prepare it any time you feel like. However, remember it’s loaded with calories, so categorise it as an occasional treat!
- Dissolve the saffron strands in 1 tbsp of warm water. Keep aside.
- Place the curds in a muslin cloth. Squeeze the curds in the muslin cloth to remove all the excess water and discard it.
- Transfer the hung curds into a deep bowl, add the powdered sugar and mix well using a whisk.
- Add the cardamom powder and saffron-water mixture and again mix well using a whisk.
- Pour the shrikhand into a serving bowl, garnish with almond and pistachio slivers and refrigerate for at least an hour.
- Serve chilled.
- Dissolving saffron (kesar) in warm water or milk is very important to bring out its full colour and flavour. So, never throw the saffron directly into the dish in a hurry without dissolving it first. Also remember that this is best done with your fingers than using a spoon.
