Shrikhand | Kesar Pista Shrikhand | Easy Homemade Shrikhand

Shrikhand is a creamy Indian delicacy made from thick strained curd known as hung curd or Chakka, powdered sugar, cardamom powder, and nuts. The shrikhand should have a buttery soft consistency, which requires correct preparation of the hung curd. Make sure the whey is thoroughly separated from the curd by letting it drain overnight, but if you're short on time, strain the curd for at least 3-4 hours. Depending on your taste, adjust the amount of sugar. The shrikhand should always be served cool. There are numerous versions of this shrikhand; a few of them are listed below .
