  • 500 gm. (1/2 litre) natural yoghurt or dahi, drained. You can use the thick, Greek style yoghurt instead, which doesn't need draining

  • 2 tbsp. castor or ground sugar.

  • A few strands of saffron, soaked in 1 tbsp. of warm milk or water

  • 1 tsp. ground green cardamom seeds


  1. If using home made yoghurt, hang it in a muslin cloth for a minimum of 2 hours, may be even 6-8 allow the whey to drain away.

  2. Beat yoghurt a little.

  3. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

  4. Spoon the mix out into individual dishes or wine glasses (looks good served in glasses).

  5. Serve chilled.


  • You can garnish individual bowls of Srikhand with finely chopped pistachios and almonds.
