Shrikhanda/ Shrikhanda Mousse


Shrikhand is our family favorite. We don't really need any reason to prepare Shrikhand but if we get one, we grab the opportunity! Today is Gudi Padwa, New Year for Maharashtrians. Every year my mother used to prepare Shrikhand to celebrate this festival and I happily continue with the tradition.

This time due to busy schedule I could not prepare chakka (hung yogurt) so I came up with this easy solution of preparing Shrikhand with Greek yogurt and Whipping cream. It definitely tastes like Shrikhand but the texture is that of Mousse so you can also serve it as Shrikhand Mousse.

Here s what you will need- 

1 1/2 cup Greek yogurt

1 cup Whipping cream

2 cups powdered sugar

2 tablespoon Milk

Few strands of Saffron

1 teaspoon Cardamom powder

1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg powder

Pistachios and Almond for garnish

Take 2 tablespoon whipping cream in a small bowl and add few strands of saffron to it and let it soak for at least 15 minutes and preferably more.

In a bowl, take 1 and half cup of Greek yogurt and whisk it till there are no lumps. 

Take a bigger bowl and put it in freezer for 1/2 hour. 

In this bowl, take 1 cup of whipping cream. 

Beat it with whisk/ hand held electric mixer/ stand mixer for few minutes till soft peaks form.

Add 1 cup powdered sugar. 

Whisk together till firm peaks form. Scrape sides if required.

Add saffron milk. 

Whisk again for 1 minute.

Add little Greek yogurt at a time. 

Gently fold it in the whipping cream. This will be good time to check the sugar and add some more if required.

Once everything is well blended add 1 teaspoon Cardamom powder 

and a pinch of Nutmeg powder 

And gently mix again. 

Shrikhand is ready! Garnish with chopped nuts.

You can serve it as is or put it in a pipping bag with a big star nozzle and pipe it in the serving bowls and top it with your favorite nuts!

I am Sonali and Welcome to Sonali's Homefoods! Thank you for visiting my blog. This is my attempt to digitize my culinary experiments and also seek creative satisfaction. I am not a professional chef or a nutritionist. I enjoy cooking and often find it meditative as it takes my mind of many unnecessary issues. I look forward to sharing with you all, recipes that are tried, tested, tasted and appreciated by my family and friends. Some recipes that I learnt from my parents, some from my friends and their moms. Some I got from recipe books and some I got from internet. But I am most excited to share with you some recipes that I have developed myself. I look forward to enjoy this delicious journey with you all!
