Jalebi Shrikhand (Hung Yoghurt based Dessert - Maharashtrian Style)


          Shrikhand is a very easy and a tasty traditional Maharashtrian dessert made out of hung yoghurt. But today I gave a slight twist to the original recipe by adding some leftover jalebis for the sweetness. Cardamom powder and saffron were also added for the flavour and colour. 

          It turned out very delicious and something new. Garnish it with some broken or crushed jalebis and cherries. Serve chilled and relish it as an after-meal dessert. So you can follow an easy step by step method with pictures to prepare this simple delicacy.








  • 500 gms. yoghurt
  • 150-200 gms. jalebi
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
  • pinch of saffron mixed in 1 tbsp. water
  • few chopped cherries










         Pour the yoghurt in a muslin cloth and place it on a strainer. Keep a bowl underneath and refrigerate it overnight. The thick hung yoghurt is used to make shrikhand.

          Blend the jalebis (save few to garnish) coarsely and add to the hung yoghurt. Whisk well and add the cardamom powder along with the saffron water. Combine everything well.

          Serve chilled in individual bowls. Garnish with some broken jalebis and cherries. Enjoy as an after-meal dessert or anytime you desire......



Note - 
1.  Pass it through a sieve if you desire a smooth texture.
2.  You can also add some broken / crushed jalebis to the end product for some crunch.
