Blogging Marathon # 14



Shrikhand is traditional Indian dessert made with hanged or stained curd. It is very popular in the states of Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh in India.
I always make this as an offering to Lord Krishna on the occasion of Janmashtami. It is one of the summer time favorite desserts among my family and friends.






  • 1 kg (2 Lbs. approx.) curd
  • 1.25 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 pinch saffron
  • 1/2 tea spoon cardamom powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pistachios
  • 1 tablespoon chopped almonds

  1. Hang the curd in a muslin cloth for 5-6 hours or overnight.
  2. Dissolve saffron in a teaspoon of warm milk or you can put saffron in one table spoon of water and microwave it for 30 seconds, see the result strands will be double of there original size
  3. In a big bowl mix all the ingredients. Refrigerate.
  4. Serve chilled.
    Quick Tip-


    You can use Greek yogurt which is already very thick instead of the hung curd.



    Add any flavor or fruit of your choice like rose, gulkand, thandai, mango, strawberry, peach, blueberry, raspberry etc. etc.
