Servings 4


  • 500 gms Non Fat Greek Yogurt
  • 2-4 strands Saffron
  • ½ - 1 tablespoon Milk
  • ½ cup Granulated Sugar
  • ¾ - 1 cup sweetened Mango Pulp I used Swad Kesar brand
  • ¼ teaspoon Cardamom Seeds Powdered
  • 1 tablespoon Pistachios chopped or sliced
  • 1 - 1 ½ tablespoon Sliced Almonds


  • Take saffron and milk in small bowl and microwave for 20 seconds. Milk should be hot. Let saffron soak in milk.
  • Take yogurt in a bowl, add sugar, mix well until sugar dissolves and is well incorporated into yogurt.
  • Add mango pulp and mix it.
  • Add saffron, cardamom powder and mix.
  • Taste shrikhand, adjust sugar and mango pulp.
  • Chill shrikhand until ready to serve.
  • Before serving, garnish with sliced almonds and pistachios.


  • Mango: I used store bought mango pulp but it can also be made at home by pureeing mango pieces. I used 1 cup and we liked it as it is. But for more mango flavor add another ¼ cup pulp.
  • Saffron: I soaked saffron in milk for few minutes and added it to yogurt. I would suggest soaking saffron for 15 – 20 minutes in hot milk and once the saffron flavor is infused into milk, remove the saffron strands and then add the saffron infused milk to yogurt.
