Shrikhand Recipe is one of the varieties of recipes from India which is served along with puries. You find this type of tradition in Maharashtra. Because of its rich golden yogurt color, children love to eat it. We find this Indian dessert during the festive season of Janmashtami, the birth of Lord Krishna.
Usually, it is made from strained curd locally named as hung and sugar. As it is made with the blend of yogurt and sugar, it is thick creamy and sweet.
In the process of making hung, we squeeze water and put it in a clean muslin or cotton and leave aside overnight so that all water is drained. If we want we can make it simple by following our steps or else we can even add mangoes and fruits.
While making this recipe, we should not be in hurry by trying to squeeze water from yogurt instead it’s a better option to hand overnight. During the night as the temperature is cold, yogurt will remain sweet rather than sour or else you can even put in a skillet and follow the same process and keep in a refrigerator.
