Day 270: Mango Shrikhand

Shrikhand is a dessert made with strained yogurt. I made shrikhand because it's my grandma's favorite dessert!

Daunting as it sounds, straining yogurt is super simple. I've included some step by step photos so you can have a visual!

First, prepare your cheesecloth. So you can use a cheesecloth or just a pillowcase. Using a cheesecloth will be fastest though.

I roll the top of my cheesecloth/pillowcase down and have it sit on a colander which is over a large bowl. Then I add the yogurt and tie the cheesecloth/pillowcase up with a knot.

You'll let this mixture sit for at least two hours. If you want the process to go a bit quicker, occasionally use your hands to squeeze your cheesecloth/pillowcase.

After that, the steps are easy peasy! Just whip the yogurt, add the sugar and mango, chill, and lastly, serve!

  1. Roll the top of the cheesecloth down and place over a colander, which is over a bowl (see photos above for help). Add the yogurt, fold up the cheesecloth, and twist to make a knot. Let this sit for at least two hours.

  2. Take out the yogurt and place it in a large bowl. With an electric mixer beat the yogurt and sugar for 2 minutes so it's fluffy. Fold in the mango puree. Chill, covered, in the fridge for 1 hour. Serve with saffron.
