Shrikhand(Creamy flavoured yogurt)
This is one of the main desserts in Gujarati cuisine. It is served as a side for rotis/puris in Maharashtra. It is made of thick curd. But I am giving a foolproof method which is equally good as the original recipe.
1. Kefir cheese(available in middle eastern stores)
2. Sugar - according to your taste(typically equal quantities of kefir cheese and sugar)
3. Saffron - a few strands
4. Elaichi powder - 1/2 tsp
5. Chopped pineapple(optional) or mango puree
Mix all the above ingredients from 1 to 4. Add pineapple pieces/mango puree if you like and refrigerate. Serve it chilled as a dessert or with puris.
