  • 500 gms yogurt/curd
  • 3-4 tablespoon sugar made into a powder
  • 7-8 strands of saffron soaked in ¼ th cup milk for few minutes
  • ½ teaspoon elaichi powder/cardamom powder
  • 2-3 tablespoon finely sliced dry fruits kaju/cashews, pista/pistachio, badam/almonds
  • some more sliced dry fruits for garnishing or topping


Straining of the yogurt:

  • Firstly, take thick yogurt/curd and strain the yogurt completely until there is no water left in the yogurt.

Making of shrikhand:

  • Take a bowl, transfer the thick strained yogurt into the bowl.
  • Beat the yogurt well without any lumps.
  • Add the powdered sugar and mix it well.
  • Add the saffron flavored milk into the yogurt and mix it well.
  • Add cardamom powder and mix well.
  • Add sliced dry fruits and mix.
  • Finally garnish with some sliced dry fruits.
  • Shrikhand is ready and serve chilled.
  • It can also be chilled in refrigerator and served when required.


1. If one finds it hard to strain the yogurt, then hung the curd using a muslin cloth for a while and then use that curd to make shrikhand.
2. The yogurt should not have any water and hung it until the yogurt is thick and free from water content.
3. If one wants more of orange color dessert then soak more saffron strands in milk which gives a dark orange color and can be added to the dessert which gives a deep color to the sweet curd.
4. We can also add some chopped fruits like mango, banana, pomegranate, papaya or any other seasonal fruit that is finely chopped and added into the shrikhand and served..
