What is Shrikand?

Shrikand is an Indian sweet dish made with strained yogurt, sugar and cardamom. It is thick, creamy and is a delicious treat during hot Summer days. Yogurt is strained for several hours, until most of the whey is drained off and results in a very thick yogurt.

Greek yogurt is almost as thick as the drained yogurt and works as a great substitute for a shrikand. Not to to mention, it saves us several hours.
