How to Make Shrikhand (Sweet Yogurt)

  • Thickening the yogurt:
  • Boil and cool the milk. Do not remove the top layer of cream.
  • Stir it into the milk to homogenize it and set yogurt, using starter.
  • When the yogurt is firmly set, follow recipe to make it into chakka.
  • Empty the thick granular chakka in a bowl.
  • Smooth out chakka with a large wooden spoon or spatula.
  • Combining the sugar and yogurt:
  • Add the sugar and mix well till it becomes creamy in texture.
  • Soak saffron in a tablespoon of warm milk to release its colour and aroma.
  • Mix it into the chakka and watch the shrikhand turn a wonderfully yellowy-orange, with delicate accents of darker orange seeping from the strands of saffron.
  • Crush cardamom seeds in a mortar-pestle and stir them into the shrikhand, although grated nutmeg is the genuine spice required.
  • Decorate the yogurt with charolya, almonds or pistachio.
