Kesar Shrikhand

Shrikhand - one of my favorite sweets, if some guests arrive at our house my mother use to make shrikhand puri. 
The process of making is very simple and I made this one more simpler. I used thick and creamy yogurt instead of water drained yogurt (Chakka)  which is more thicker. As I had some guest and I didn't had much time to make any sweet so I made this Shrikhand within no time. Use thick yogurt as when you add sugar it will become thin in consistency. 


  • 1 cup yogurt, thick and creamy
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 10-12 saffron strings (Soaked in warm milk for few mins)


  1. Mix all the ingredients together to a smooth consistency. 
  2. Serve cold and with Chapati.


  1. That is an easy way. I always heard that the curd has to be hung, this new process gives me hope that I too can make it at home :)

  2. Yes traditional method of doing 'Shrikhand' is that you have to hung the yogurt, but i was in hurry and also i had that thick and creamy yogurt so tried with that. the consistency is little liquid as compared to the traditional but it works. :)
