Kesar Elaichi Shrikhand...homemade in 5 mins

Homemade Shrikhand Recipe Shrikhand is mildly flavoured indian dessert which is traditionally prepared by hung curd , sugar and spices like cardamons, saffron and dry fruits. This is the first time I have made shrikhand at home, usually back in bombay we used to get the readymade Amul shrikhand. This is the most easiest and quickest way to make creamy shrikhand without compromising on the flavor. I have used Greek yogurt to make this yummy dessert. It tasted even better than ready made ones we get and you can try different flavors and explore your creativity. I love the flavor and aroma of elaichi in shrikhand. I made this creamy shrikhand in just about 10 mins and wow i was so impressed with the results, that I am planning to make this again as i finished the entire bowl all by my self :)) Sending this to Srivalli's Mithai Mela, WYF:Quick Meals by EC and 15 mins cooking by Mahimaa. From thursday i'll be travelling so will not be able to visit your blogs often.
