Prepare Delicious ‘Shreekhand’ for Deepavali Delights!

The delightful Shreekhand, known for its sweet and sour, buttery goodness, is cherished not only in North India but also among the food enthusiasts of Kerala. If you have a fondness for this luscious thick yogurt infused with saffron, cardamom, and other aromatic flavors, you can embark on the culinary journey of creating a simplified version of it right at home, just in time for this Deepavali. For those mindful of their calorie intake, a little portion control might be in order, but after all, what’s Deepavali without a touch of indulgence?

Here’s the recipe to get you started:

– 2 cups fresh curd
– 1 cup powdered sugar
– 1/2 cup powdered cardamom
– 5 pieces each of badam and cashew
– 1 banana, cut into 5 thin pieces
– 1 or 2 pinches of saffron


1. Begin by placing the fresh curd into a strainer cloth and allowing it to drain until all the excess water is removed.

2. Transfer the drained curd to a bowl and combine it with sugar, cardamom, and saffron, ensuring a thorough mix.

3. Stir the mixture vigorously using a hand beater or whisk to achieve a smooth consistency.

4. Refrigerate the mixture for a minimum of two hours, allowing the flavors to meld and intensify.

5. When you’re ready to serve, garnish the Shreekhand with cherries, cashews, and badam, enhancing both its visual appeal and taste.

For an added twist, consider incorporating apple slices or orange segments into your Shreekhand to elevate its deliciousness even further. Enjoy this homemade Deepavali treat!
