#Shrikhand

#Shrikhand

Today at the #Buffet onTable join me for a #Maharashtrian  meal  of #Poori or Puri, #Batata chi Bhaji,# Sadha Varan and  #Bhat!

I had made koshimbir too but forgot to include it on the thali .

You know if you ar ea regular visitor to my place that I love sweets and no one in my place is keen on them. Then Shrikhand is too not enjoyed by anyone present company included. This is one sweet that I used to get upset every time Amma made it. So it was a set thing for Sisters birthday it was Shrikhand and mine Basundi or Payasa.

Anyway enjoy today’s Shrikhand and this time I tasted it a bit and it was okay!

Shrikhand

A delicious fruit based accompaniment that can be served as a dessert too.

 

Preparation time: 180 Minutes

Serves: 4 People

Ingredients:

  • 1 Kilogram Thick curds
  • ¾ Cup  sugar
  • A few kesar/saffron strands
  • 1  Tablespoon warm milk
  • 2 Teaspoon elichi/cardamom  powder

Method:

  • Transfer the curds to a big but small-holed sieve. (I have a plastic one that I use to strain my coconut milk and it’s big enough for my hand to fit in it, or you can hang the curds in a muslin cloth).
  • Cover place a large deep bowl under the sieve and place in the fridge overnight or for 3 hours till most of the liquid in the curds has drained out.
  • This hung curd is called chakka in Kannada and Marathi.
  • Meanwhile soak the saffron into the warm milk.
  • Mix together the hung curds, sugar, saffron mixture and cardamom in a bowl and churn using a hand blender.
  •  Serve garnished with cashewnuts, pistachio, almonds and kesar.

Notes:

  • You can play with the ingredients and make kesar shrikhand, elicihi shrikhand etc. The kesar gives a lovely yellow colour.
  • Shrikhand can be made yummier with the addition fruits like mangoes.
  • Make the Shrikhand one day in advance and the flavours and colours are much much better.
