Add a delicious finish to any meal with this light, refreshing, delightful and aromatic summer dessert from India that is intriguingly simple to whip up.
2 cups Greek yogurt/hung yogurt
2 tbsp agave nectar/honey/icing sugar
Few strands saffron
I tbsp warm milk to soak saffron strands
½ tsp Green cardamom powder
Pistachios for garnishing
Whisk together agave nectar, cardamom powder and yogurt.
Decorate with pistachio and cardamom powder and refrigerate for at least
You can add ripe mango or fresh strawberry puree, vanilla, or add a twist with 2 tsp cocoa/melted chocolate and chocolate shavings and almonds to your yogurt to have different flavored shrikhand. However, the basic recipe remains the same.
Note: Hung yogurt is made by straining the yogurt through a cheese cloth.
