Shrikhand is an Indian dessert made of strained yogurt. It is one of the main desserts in Maharashtrian cuisine and Gujarati cuisine. The dish is served chilled. In Gujarati cuisine, shrikhand is eaten as either a side-dish with breads such as poori or as a desert. It is commonly served as part of a vegetarian thali in Gujarati restaurants and it is very popular as part of wedding feasts.

The ingredients required to make Shrikhand are 1 kg. thick curd, 3/4 cup powdered sugar, a few strands saffron, 1 tablespoon warm milk and 2 teaspoons cardamom powder (elaichi), thin slices of almonds and pistachios for garnishing.

To make this, firstly, hang the curds in a muslin cloth in a cool place for approximately
3 hours until all the liquid has drained off. Rub the saffron into the warm milk until it dissolves. Mix together the hung curd, sugar, saffron mixture and cardamom in a bowl and churn using a hand blender. Place this mixture in the refrigerator. Garnish it with almonds and pistachios and serve it cold.
