Shrikand (Hung yoghurt dessert)


Srikand is a very popular GuJarati sweet dish that is served at weddings nad also in an Indian thali.

It is make with very few ingredients, but it is extremely adaptable and can be flavoured with many fruits such as strawberries, mangoes, chikoo and pineapple.

Srikand can be eating during religious fasting and is a suitable vrat ka khanna. I have shared below the classic version with saffron, cardamom and rose petals. You can also make a coconut srikand.

  37. A bowlful of a heavenly sweet treat. I love my shrikand loaded with nuts. Adding rose petals makes it so flavorful. I remember my mum would chop up fresh rose petals and mix it into the shrikand.
