Blogging Marathon# 29: Week 1/ Day 3

Theme: Cooking with Colors

Dish: Strawberry Shrikhand — Red

For the final day of this week’s BM, I made a delicious and colorful Shrikhand with Strawberries. Shrikhand  is nothing but sweetened strained yogurt that is usually made in Maharashtra and Gujarat. At one point in my life, I would have said a “BIG NO” to Shrikhand because I considered yogurt savory and it was sacrilege to add sugar to yogurt. Now that I’m older and wiser I know how tasty this combination could be.


To add some color and sweetness to plain shrikhand, I added some strawberry pulp to yogurt and then to make it even more fancy, I layered yogurt with strawberry puree. This combination was so amazing — both in the looks department and also in the taste department.

Recipe adapted from Ashwini’s recipe.

Ingredients
For Strawberry Shrikhand:
  • cups Yogurt (I used 2% Greek )
  • ¼ cup Sugar (or adjust as per taste)
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 6 tbsps Strawberry Pulp (Blend ½cup of fresh/ frozen strawberries)
  • ¼ tsp Cardamom Ground (Elaichi)
  • 2 tbsps Pistachios - lightly toasted for garnish
For Strawberry Puree:
  • 1 cup Strawberries
  • 2 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 3 tbsps Sugar (or adjust as per taste)
Servings: serving
Instructions
  1. Prepare the Yogurt: Place the yogurt in a cheese cloth lined sieve on a bowl to catch the liquid. Set this aside for 1-2 hours in the fridge.
  2. To make Shrikhand: Whisk all the ingredients in a medium size bowl and refrigerate at least for 2 hours before serving.
  3. For Strawberry Puree: Combine all the ingredients listed in a small sauce pan and cook on medium flame until the strawberries are mushy and the sugar is dissolved. Cool completely and store in a clean airtight container, use as needed on pancakes, ice creams etc.
Recipe Notes
  • To Serve: Strawberry shrikhand is delicious as is, but tastes great when topped or layered with the strawberry puree. Garnish with toasted pistachios on top and Enjoy!!
