How to Make Easy Shrikhand

  • Hang the yogurt in a muslin cloth for 3 hours, drain the whey and reserve.
  • Dissolve saffron in the milk and set aside.
  • Blanch the almonds, cool and cut into slivers.
  • Cut the pistachios into slivers and powder the sugar.
  • Tie a clean muslin cloth tightly over the mouth of a large clean vessel. The muslin cloth thus acts as a sieve and should not sag in the middle. Use a clean thick string to tie the cloth over the vessel. Transfer the thick yogurt along with the sugar onto the muslin cloth in small quantities.
  • For every cup of thick yogurt, add 3/4 cup of sugar.
  • Rub the above mixture firmly over the cloth, till the whole mixture is sieved.
  • Add the dissolved saffron, almonds, pistachios and cardamom power to the sieved mixture.
  • Mix well, transfer to a glass bowl and refrigerate till cold.
  • Serve chilled.
