Berry Shrikhand

Shrikhand is an Indian sweet dish made of hung curd(AKA strained Yogurt). It is one of the main desserts in Gujarati cuisine and Maharashtrian cuisine. It's very easy to make just the preparations takes a bit of time.

A popular variation of shrikhand in Maharashtra is Amrakhand, which is made with mango pulp. Another variant of shrikhand, I made with berries. This can be made with any fruit pulp or nuts powder.

In Gujarati cuisine, shrikhand is eaten  with Poori. It is commonly served as part of a vegetarian thali in restaurants. It is served chilled as a counterpoint to hot and spicy curries. Fresh fruits are best for it's garnish.

I 'm sure you will try making this berry shrikhand at least for once. Don't forget to comment below :) Until next time.......Happy Cooking Friends, Saumya


Yogurt                                               - 3 cups
Mix Berries                                       - 2 cup (I used Strawberry and raspberry)
Green Cardamom Powder                 - 1/2 tspoon
Sugar                                                 - 1/2 cup


Hung the curd in a muslin, cheese cloth for at-least 4-5 hours, best left overnight.
Throughly wash and Puree the berries.
In a pan add berry puree and sugar, stir it continuously on medium flame.
Once the sauce starts to thickenup, drain in through a sieve to aviod the seeds while eating.
Take a deep mixing bowl, add thick hung curd to it, add the cardamom powder and mix with a hand blender.
Pour the berry sauce into the bowl and blend till smooth.
Pour shrikhand in individual serving bowls or in the big serving bowl and keep in the fridge overnight to chill it.
Once chilled, spoon or pipe it into the serving bowls and garnish with fresh berry or glazed cherry.
This is the best dessert in hot summers. Also can be added to the Thali menus as a dessert.
We sometimes eat it a part of out Thali and sometimes just with Puris for breakfast.
