BM# 100: Week 2, Day 3
Theme : 3 ingredient Dishes
For Day 3, here is another yogurt based recipe. Strawberry Flavored shrikhand. We had been to a friend’s place for dinner recently. They served us a very generous thali, but it was the shrikhand – puri combination that all of us relished a lot. Surprisingly, my husband who is not a fan of anything sweet, loved it as well.
I decided to make it at home as it’s been ages since I prepared it. I have made plain shrikhand and mango shrikhand before, so this time I decided to make strawberry flavored one. I followed Usha’s recipe here and with just three ingredients to make this fantastic dish, it was perfect for this week’s theme. I love how Usha’s pictures have highlighted the pale pink color of shrikhand, not an easy task to accomplish.
Both my husband and son loved this. I would suggest tasting the shrikhand and making some adjustments while preparing it as the sourness of yogurt and sweetness of strawberries vary vastly. So use this recipe as a guide and tweak it to your taste.
Serves : 3
- 1 1/2 cups hung yogurt /Greek yogurt
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup of strawberry purée
- If using regular yogurt, it needs to be drained well to remove excess water. Layer a clean cotton cloth over a fine mesh strainer. Place the strainer over a large bowl. Pour yogurt into the lined strainer and refrigerate overnight covered with a plate or plastic wrap. An Easier way is to use Greek yogurt.
- Purée strawberries to get about a cup of purée. Once the yogurt has drained, add it to a bowl. Add the sugar and the fruit purée in 2-3 batches to the drained yogurt. Mix well using a hand blender or a whisk. Taste test and add more sugar if needed. Refrigerate until the time of serving. If you prefer, you can mix in some chopped strawberries as well. Serve garnished with strawberries or chopped nuts.

Oh my that is such a creamy and delicious looking dessert. Love the pretty pink color strawberries give the dish – very inviting.
I love shrikand so much. Flavouring it with fruits adds so much to the flavour. The strawberry adds a really cute pink to the shrikand. Yum.
Wonderful color for this amazing and flavorful shrikhand. I am sure the combination of puri and shrikhand is next to divinity :)
This is an excellent combination and I love it. Not sure if I have already shared it, though I do make it. The presentation makes it so sinful Rajani.
That is a lovely color you got on the Shrikhand. Paired with puri is the best way to enjoy it.
I was going to comment even I make it, before reading the mention. Thanks for mentioning and your pictures have come out very well Rajani. Love that pink. Next time I get sweet strawberries, will add raw strawberry puree as you did.
That’s a pretty pink, Rajani ! My kiddo will love something like this ..
Puri shrikhand is a classic combination and I can imagine how the strawberry shrikhand would have elevated the meal. Your pics are fabulous…makes me drool!
