let’s talk about the ingredients for shrikhand

yogurt/curds: shrikhand calls for perfect yogurt. if using homemade yogurt, make sure to use full cream milk to prepare yogurt. if buying readymade yogurt use full cream yogurt.
other ingredients: I have used powdered sugar instead of granulated sugar to fasten the process. saffron strands dissolved in lukewarm milk is added, which gives gorgeous colour and great flavour to shrikhand.

How To Make Kesar Shrikhand

1. Hang the yogurt : place a sieve on a large bowl. line the sieve with a muslin cloth. add 2 cups yogurt. squeeze off the water. place some weight on it. refrigerate for 4-5 hours or overnight.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
