About this recipe: Shrikhand is a Maharashtrian-Gujarati sweet dish, great for festivals. It can be eaten by itself or as part of a meal. I like it with pooris.


Serves: 4 

  • 6 cups curd made from whole milk
  • 4 cups powdered sugar (more/less to taste)
  • 2 generous pinches saffron threads
  • 2 tablespoons warm milk
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom (elaichi) powder
  • ¼ cup chopped pistachio (pista) nuts
  • Few drops yellow food colouring (optional)

Prep:3hr  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Extra time:1hr chilling  ›  Ready in:4hr25min 

  1. Tie a clean muslin cloth or cheese cloth over the rim of a large bowl or pot. Pour the curd in and let the whey drain for a few hours. Press the curd firmly to release any excess liquid. You should have very thick curd in the cloth. Transfer the curd carefully into a clean bowl.
  2. Soak the saffron threads in the warm milk for 10 minutes. Add to the curd. Now add the sugar, pistachio nuts, and cardamom powder and mix well. If you want, add some food colouring a drop at a time till you get the colour you want.
  3. Refrigerate the shrikhand till it is completely chilled. Serve cold.
