What is Strawberry Shrikhand?

Shrikhand is thick, sweet, hung yogurt. It is a popular dessert in Indian states of Gujarat and Maharashtra. Traditionally, it is flavored with cardamom and/or saffron. Strawberry shrikhand is a twist to traditional recipe where sweet strawberry puree is used to flavor yogurt. Here is mango shrikhand I made few years ago.

How to prepare Strawberry Shrikhand?

Cook strawberries with sugar until soft, puree and mix it with hung or strained yogurt. Instead of straining yogurt, the easiest substitute is Greek yogurt, thus making this a semi homemade recipe. It is a 3 ingredient, quick and easy recipe that is done in under 30 minutes. The only time consuming step of the recipe is cooling strawberry sugar mixture.

Though it is a dessert, it is very versatile. Serve it for breakfast or even as a snack. Shrikhand is garnished with nuts and I left it out in this recipe. When serving it for breakfast or as a snack, highly recommend adding nuts. The recipe calls for ¼ cup sugar and if one doesn’t have a sweet tooth, adjust to taste.
