Shrikhand is a sweet and tangy dessert from the Indian state of Gujarat. It’s made from strained yoghurt, flavoured with saffron and cardamom, and sweetened with sugar. The dish is usually garnished with nuts and served chilled, making it a refreshing and indulgent treat.

Shrikhand is a popular dessert in India, often served during festivals and special occasions. It pairs well with various Indian sweets, such as gulab jamun and rasgulla, and savoury snacks like samosas and pakoras.

If you have a sweet tooth and enjoy the tanginess of yoghurt, Shrikhand is the perfect dessert for you. With its creamy texture and aromatic flavour, it’s sure to satisfy your cravings and leave you wanting more.




For Mango variations, add mango pulp or puree 1 ripe mango in the mixer and add to the mixture.

Instead of plain curd, you can use Greek Yogurt. If you do use Greek Yogurt, you can skip the first step.

If you use Greek yogurt, do you still have to hang the curd?
