Cook's Hideout: Rose Shrikhand (Gulab Shrikand)

Rose Shrikhand (Gulab Shrikand)

It's officially summer like in our neck of woods. My son has another week to go before his summer vacation starts -- he can't wait for this week to pass. I'm already worried on how to keep him busy without having to turn on the tv for the whole day. Also bored kids get hungry frequently, so it's better to keep him busy with something that interests him and hopefully we'll survive the summer.

Sorry, I digressed. Coming back to the Rose shrikhand. This is a perfect summer dessert, light, sweet and refreshing. Shrikhand/ Shrikand is a yogurt based dessert and it is traditionally flavored with saffron, cardamom and nuts.

Nowadays a wide variety of shrikhands with various flavorings are being made. I made strawberry flavored and mixed fruit shrikhand in the past. This rose or gulab flavored shrikhand is from a Telugu cooking show. It looked so good on tv, I had to make it for myself right away. 
I wasn't disappointed, it tasted as good as it looks. It takes just minutes to mix and in couple of hours, you have a delicious dessert. Make it for your next summer party or as a sweet treat to yourself :-)
Ingredients: Serves 2
Greek Yogurt or Strained thick yogurt - 1cup (I used Fage 2% Greek yogurt)
Sugar - 2tbsp (adjust as per taste preference)
Rose Syrup - 2~3tbsp
Rose Water - 2~3tsp
Pistachios - 1tbsp, finely chopped

  • Whisk the yogurt until creamy. Add the other ingredients and mix well to combine. Taste and add more sugar or rose syrup. Chill for 1~2 hours and serve garnished with chopped pistachios. Rose Shrikhand (Gulab Shrikand)
