Srikhand is a flavored creamy Indian dessert made of plain yogurt. Here, yogurt is hung to make it thick. It is then whisked with pineapple juice and mixed with fruits and nuts. Serve pineapple banana shrikand immediately or chilled.
Makes: One Serving of Pineapple Banana Shrikand.
Plain Yogurt 1 1/4 Cups
Pineapple Juice 3 – 4 Tbsps
Banana 1 Small
Method of preparation:
Roughly chop the walnuts.
Peel and chop the banana into small pieces.
Tie plain yogurt in a clean muslin cloth and hang it in refrigerator (tie the ends of cloth to the rack) for 6 – 8 hours with a bowl underneath to collect the whey.
The yogurt thickens to a very good extent.
Remove the yogurt into a bowl, add pineapple juice and whisk well.
Stir in chopped banana and walnuts.
Garnish the shrikhand with walnuts and pineapple juice.
Serve pineapple banana shrikand immediately.
Notes: Make sure to strain the yogurt well for pineapple juice to be incorporated.
Suggestions: Shrikhand is liquidy – need to hung the yogurt for some more time or use less pineapple juice. Try whole milk yogurt which leaves more whey when hung.
Variations: Also add chopped pineapple to the yogurt mixture.
Other Names: Pineapple Banana Shrikand.
