recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • 200 gms shrikhand plain or cardamom flavored shrikhand
  • 1.5 cup yogurt (dahi)
  • ½ cup milk or as required (doodh)
  • 1 tbsp hot milk + a pinch of saffron strands (infuse saffron in hot milk for some time)

  • 1 tbsp vetiver water (kewra water) optional
How to make the recipe?
  1. Place saffron in hot milk for 3-4 mins. Stir the mixture nicely. Allow to cool.
  2. Combine curd, milk, saffron infused milk, shrikhand, cardamom powder, nutmeg powder, kewra water and sugar into a mixing bowl.
  3. Now blend with a electric beater, manually whisk or use a wooden churner (madani). Blend all until mixture is smooth and creamy.
  4. Pour into earthen or clay pots and place into the refrigerator for 2-3 hrs. Serve your piyush chilled and garnish with saffron and sliced pistachios. You could also sprinkle some cardamom or nutmeg powder on the garnish.
Notes
1. I have used cardamom shrikhand but you could use home-made shrikhand or any shrikhand for piyush preferably the yellow colored ones.
2. Ensure you serve them chilled for the best results in flavor and taste.
3. Add sugar accordingly as shrikhand is sweet so be careful while adding sugar.
4. You could use any serving bowl or glass not necessarily mud pots.
5. Also if you don't have saffron available then add ¼th tsp of turmeric powder for the pale yellow color.
