Gulcand Shrikhand (Hung Yoghurt based Dessert - Maharashtrian Style)


          Shrikhand is a traditional Maharashtrian sweet prepared with hung yoghurt. It is a very easy, simple and at the same time a delicious dessert. It can be a healthy combination if you go in for low fat yoghurt and brown sugar. Besides the plain version, you can make many flavoured Shrikhnd with your favourite fruit. 

          But today I tried with some gulcand for a rose flavour. Enjoy it as an after meal dessert or with poori. So please go ahead and try it by following a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.









  • 400 gms. yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp. gulcand
  • 1-2 tbsp. sugar or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
  • 1 tsp. rose water
  • few chopped mixed nuts to garnish
  • few rose petals to garnish
  • pinch of saffron strands to garnish








          Pour the yoghurt in a cheese cloth and place it on a strainer. Keep this on a bowl in the refrigerator overnight. The thick hung yoghurt is used for the recipe.

          Blend the gulcand and the rose water. In a bowl, whisk together the yoghurt, gulcand, cardamom powder and sugar to a smooth paste. 

          Pass it through a sieve to remove the granules. Garnish with chopped nuts, rose petals and saffron.  Chill before serving it in individual bowls.
