Shrikhand or Greek Yogurt Pudding

Shrikhand is a very popular Indian dessert made from hung curd or greek yogurt and is very common festive dessert. It’s especially liked by kids. Complemented with some juicy fruits like mango/grapes/pomegranate etc. as well as crunchy nuts, this makes the festivity richer! We twisted it a bit to make shrikhand tart that turned out to be a great fusion Indian dessert!

Ingredients:

For shrikhand:

  • 4 cups hung curd or greek yogurt
  • 1.5 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup each sliced almonds, pistachio, cashewnuts
  • 8-10 saffron strands
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • Chopped fresh fruits of choice

For tart: you can either make it using all purpose flour or with the crushed biscuits and let it rest in the fridge for a few hours

Procedure:

  • Put the yogurt into a cloth sieve or a sieve with very very minute holes and let it drain overnight or at least for 5-6 hours. Best to keep it in the refrigerator while it drains so it doesn’t get sour
  • Sieve the drained yogurt into a container with the help of a spoon so that the smoothened and drained yogurt comes out
  • Take saffron and a few drops of hot water in a mortar and crush nicely till the colour comes out
  • Put this in the container as well as sugar and mix well
  • Add cardamom powder and mix well
  • Chill in the refrigerator for a few hours and serve after garnishing with nuts and fresh fruits!
  • If you’re making shrikhand tart, pour this chilled shrikhand in the tart gently and serve
