Blogging Marathon# 29: Week 1/ Day 3 Theme: Cooking with Colors Dish: Strawberry Shrikhand -- Red For the final day of this week's BM, I made a delicious and colorful Shrikhand with Strawberries. Shrikhand is nothing but sweetened strained yogurt that is usually made in Maharashtra and Gujarat. At one point in my life, I would have said a "BIG NO" to Shrikhand because I considered yogurt savory and it was sacrilege to add sugar to yogurt. Now that I'm older and wiser I know how tasty this combination could be.


46 serving

Total time

20 minutes





  • 1½ cups yogurt
  • 0.25 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 6 tbsps Strawberry
  • 0.25 tsp cardamom
  • 2 tbsps pistachios
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsps sugar


  1. Prepare the Yogurt: Place the yogurt in a cheese cloth lined sieve on a bowl to catch the liquid. Set this aside for 1-2 hours in the fridge.
  2. To make Shrikhand: Whisk all the ingredients in a medium size bowl and refrigerate at least for 2 hours before serving.
  3. For Strawberry Puree: Combine all the ingredients listed in a small sauce pan and cook on medium flame until the strawberries are mushy and the sugar is dissolved. Cool completely and store in a clean airtight container, use as needed on pancakes, ice creams etc.
