Shrikhand Recipe

Shrikhand is a Indian sweet,a most popular dessert which is delicious and creamy to taste. It is such an sinful dessert to indulge when we are carving for sweet badly is it. For this weeks Bm theme I had taken Indian desserts , which thinking about some Indian desserts every sweet is actually had as dessert after meal but to be specific I wanted to shared some Indian chilled desserts. So not to forget our traditional sweets served chilled in which shrikhand can't be forgotten. I never forget to enjoy these sinful treat whenever I encounter them sold in matkas or terracotta bowls. Usually shrikhand are made with hung curd, but it takes over night to make the hung curd and we have to wait till all the water in the curd drains off and thick curd is got. I was carving for shrikhand and cudn't wait for a day to make them so made this quick version . This quick version of shrikhand will surprise you as tastes just similar and yumm. Lets move on to the recipe with no further ado.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#47
