Shrikhand is an easy no cook dessert recipe, with just few ingredients and yet rich and delicious sweet. Make it as this Krishna Janmashtami special recipes and offer Lord Krishna and enjoy with your family. As I have mentioned in my Mango shrikhand recipe, my first Shrikhand experience was bad. But after making mango shrikhand, I started liking it and thought I should try the plain shrikhand. It turned out really rich and yummy and the best part was my kid Aj liked it to my surprise Happy.

  2. Transfer to the serving bowls. Garnish with soaked, peeled, finely chopped pistachios, Cover it with cling wrap and keep refrigerated until serving! 2-refrigerate


  • I added powdered sugar candy (Rock sugar candy/ Kalkandu). You can add fine grain or powdered sugar too.
  • Adjust the sugar quantity according to your sweet preference.
  • Nuts like almonds and pistachios can be used. The chopped nuts can be mixed with the shrikhand too.

Serve this rich and flavorful dessert always cold. It was like eating sweet lassi in icecream form for me Batting Eyelashes, coz of the cardamom, rose essence may be.
