Kesar (Saffron) Shrikhand
A personal childhood favorite!!! Rich, finger-lickingly delicious Kesar Shrikhand!!!
  • 900 gm Greek Yogurt
  • 1 ½ cup Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Milk
  • 2 Generous Pinches of Saffron
  • 10 Pods of Green Cardamom (open up the pods and crush the seeds to a fine powder)
  • Blanched almonds for garnishing (Optional)
  1. Take a muslin cloth/handkerchief and spread it on a bowl. Pour greek yogurt onto the cloth. Bring edges of cloth together and squeeze it lightly to drain the excess whey.
  2. Add the saffron to the milk and keep aside.
  3. Transfer the yogurt to a deep bowl. Add sugar, cardamon powder as well as the saffron milk and whisk well until sugar is dissolved and yogurt becomes smooth and creamy.
  4. Garnish with almonds or any other nuts of your choice. Chill for an hour before serving.
