Chia Shrikhanda


Gudi Padwa marks the beginning of new year in the state of Maharashtra. This festival marks the onset of spring season which is also a season of new beginning! 

Before this festival day, we clean up our homes and get rid of all broken or unwanted things.  Basically our Spring cleaning ! On the day of the festival, we decorate the entrance of our home and raise Gudi which should face North. We take blessings of elders in family and like all Indian festivals, have a feast! Traditionally, we make Shrikhanda (dessert prepared using hung yogurt). This time I prepared this easy to make Shrikhanda using Greek yogurt and also added Chia seeds for obvious health benefits. It came out really yummy and my whole family loved it so sharing the recipe with you all! 

For preparing this recipe we will need-

1 cup Greek Yogurt

1/4 cup Milk

2.5 tablespoon Sugar or Sugar substitute

2 tablespoon Chia seeds

1/8 teaspoon Cardamom powder

Few threads of Saffron

And this is how we prepare the recipe-

In a small bowl take 1/4 cup warm milk.

Add few saffron threads to it and mix it. Keep it aside for 10-15 minutes

In a bigger bowl, take 1 cup Unflavored Greek yogurt.

Whisk it for few minutes till it is smooth.

Add Saffron milk and mix it.

Once it is mixed well, add 2 1/2 tablespoon sugar. You can use Sugar substitute instead of sugar. 

You can use Brown sugar too but that will change the color of our dish.

Add 2 tablespoon Chia seeds.

Add 1/8 teaspoon Cardamom powder and mix it.

Make sure there are no Chia seeds stuck on the wall of the bowl.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 5-6 hours.

Open and mix once more and serve chilled topped with some fresh fruits like Strawberry or mango.

I am topping it with chopped almonds but you cab use any nuts of your choice.

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!
