I had the first taste of Shrikhand when Arwa of 'I live in a frying pan' got it to the Fooderati Arabia(the food bloggers group in Dubai) picnic and it was so 'yumiliscious' that I almost wanted to grab the dish and run away!!I had made up my mind that I would certainly try it out one day.And finally when I did,I recollected Arwa's tip of adding condensed milk instead of sugar for that smooth,velvety texture. Believe me, it did give an exceptional result!I really don't know what kept me from trying this out for so long....
So here I am people,with an amazingly delectable dessert recipe that will definitely make up for abandoning my blog like that.And it is super easy too.Just try it and you'll love it.
3 CUPS CURD(HUNG IN A MUSLIN CLOTH FOR A FEW HOURS OR OVERNIGHT)
1 CUP SOUR CREAM
3/4 TIN SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK(LESS OR MORE ACCORDING TO TASTE)
1 TSP CARDAMOM POWDER
A FEW STRANDS OF SAFFRON SOAKED IN A TBSP OF MILK
Take the curd out of the muslin cloth.Ensure that all water is drained and it can almost form into a ball.
Mix curd with sour cream,condensed milk, cardamom powder and saffron.
Combine well together with a whisk.
Garnish with almonds or pistachios.
