Yoghurt (Dahi) is known to be a part of most of the meals, right from breakfast till dinner. It is nutritionally rich in calcium & vitamins. Yoghurt comes in many flavors; this one is called shrikhand and is very easy to do at home dessert. It comes mainly from the states of Gujarat & Maharashtra in India.

- For making Shrikhand really thick curd without water in it is needed so its best that the yoghurt can be put in a clean muslin cloth and hung inside the refrigerator till water is out and it is completely chilled.
- Take out the yoghurt from refrigerator and in a mixing bowl; mix gently with sugar, saffron & cardamom powder.
- Transfer to serving bowls and garnish with toasted almonds & pistachios & chironjee seeds. Serve chilled.
