Shrikhand

Shrikhand is basically hung curd sweetened with sugar and flavoured with elaichi, with additional ingredients added for variations. It is an integral part of both Maharashtrian and Gujarati cuisine. It is offered as a “Naivedya” in prayers in the Maharashtrian culture. No important celebratory meal can be complete without this easy, yet super delicious delicacy. Subtle flavours of kesar, elaichi and garnish of pistas add to its rich taste.

  3. Arrange a muslin cloth on it.

  4. Pour the curd into it and place it overnight in the fridge so that its moisture drains off completely to get thick, hung curd.
