Shrikhand


Shrikhand is a very popular classic dessert made of hung yogurt and sugar. It is one of the main desserts in Gujarati and Maharashtrian cuisine. In Gujarati cuisine, shrikhand is eaten as either a side-dish or with poori. It is commonly served as part of a vegetarian thali in Gujarati restaurants and is popular as part of wedding feasts. A popular variation of shrikhand in Maharastra is Amrakhand, which is shrikhand blended with mango pulp. Another variant of shrikhand, Matho, is served as a sweet dish or dessert. The preparation method is almost the same, but some fresh fruits are always added in Matho.
