Shrikhand | Kesar - Elaichi Shrikhand | Thick yogurt Dessert

Yogurt - 2 cup,
Warm milk - 1 tbsp,
Saffron - 1/2 tsp,
Powdered sugar - 1/3 to 1/2 cup,
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp,
Almond (finely chopped) - 1 tbsp,
Cashew (finely chopped) - 1 tbsp,
Pistachio (finely chopped) - 1 tbsp,
Raisins - 2 tbsp,
Slivered nuts - for garnishing.

Take a colander and place over a bowl. Now place muslin cloth and add yogurt as per given below image.


Refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours or over night. This process drain out water from yogurt. Refrigeration process will prevent yogurt from turning sour.

After 6 to 8 hours, transfer thick yogurt in a mixing bowl from muslin cloth.


In a small bowl, add warm milk followed by saffron strands. Mix well and set aside for 10 minutes.

Now whisk prepared thick yogurt well till it gets semi smooth texture.

Now sift in powdered sugar and whisk well again.


Now add prepared milk and saffron mixture. Again mix well.


Now add cardamom powder followed with almond, cashew, pistachio and raisins.

Give it a good mix. Transfer into an airtight glass container. Refrigerate for 4 - 5 hours for better color and texture. This process allows saffron to release its flavour as well as color in shrikhand. Garnish with any slivered nuts of your choice. Serve chill.


Adjust amount of ingredients as per taste.
Amount of sugar is depends on sourness and thickness of yogurt.
Yogurt should be fresh and not sour in taste.
For plain shrikhand, omit saffron, cardamom and all nuts.
