Dry Fruits Shrikhand

Dry Fruits Shrikhand

Dry Fruits Shrikhand is a delicious sinful dessert from Maharastra and is a different take of Shrikhand from the regular one. This is full of nuts and fruits and makes a wonderful dessert.

When I decided on making a Maharashtrian Thali, I wanted the sweet to be something easy yet authentic. I took help from Pradnya to decide on the menu and I picked up this Dry Fruits Shrikhand from her space.

Both Hubby and I are very fond of Shrikhand and I make this at least a week with the excess curds that get unconsumed. In fact, this is one sweet that I really love to enjoy and when it has all the nuts, it tastes out of the world. When I was making the Maharashtrian Thali, Amma told me that she hasn’t tasted a Shrikhand till now, even though I have so many versions posted. I was really surprised how it could be. Anyway, I made this especially for her to enjoy the thali along with this dessert.

We are starting the BM#88, Week 3, where I will be sharing some dishes that were part of our Mother’s Day Special.

  1. Mouthwatering thali! Shrikhand with lots of dry fruits must have tasted great. A nice treat to your mother and apt for your theme.

  2. Shrikhand with dry fruit sounds very rich and delicious. It looks very creamy and inviting. A great dessert to make all year round but especially in summer.
