Hope everyone is staying safe. I know it has been really tough for everyone staying at home for such a long period, but those souls who take care of their home and are working from home like me, it feels a bit easier. An added advantage is that my hubby and kid are with me so that I don’t feel that lonely. But still without any outing, it really gets on my nerves sometimes. I have been concentrating so much on fitness and my baking group in FB so that it keeps me uber busy the whole day. But I haven’t been keeping up with the blog lately. After the accident, I somehow lost my interest in writing a blog post or editing a video for YouTube. But I do have so many recipes to share with you all which I made last year for an event. But at the final moment didn’t take part, so all those delicious recipes are waiting to be shared with you guys.
Today I will share a simple yet delicious dessert which you can easily make during this lock down, if you have some milk / yogurt. It is a light dessert which is also very easy to make if you have hung curd available. Else, prepare for it the previous day and enjoy the Shrikand for dessert. There are various ways you can make shrikand, any flavour you can add and this saffron one is one of the exotic variety. I love mango shrikand. Will soon post a recipe for that as mangoes started arriving in the market. Make sure to add a tiny pinch of saffron as it gives some strong flavour. I added a bit extra and it was overwhelming.
Curd – 500 ml
Milk – 1 tbs
Powdered Sugar – 4-5 tbs
Cardamom Powder – 1/4 tsp
Saffron a small pinch
Pistachios for garnish.
Line a sieve with muslin and pour the curd into it.
Cover and set it in refrigerator overnight.
Now remove the hung curd on to a bowl.
Soak saffron in warm milk and set aside for 30 minutes.
To the hung curd, add powdered sugar, soaked saffron with the milk and cardamom powder.
Use a whisk or a beater and beat until all the ingredients are incorporated and the curd is fluffy.
Transfer to serving bowls, top with pistachios and saffron strands and chill in fridge for a while.
Serve is chilled.
