You know Overnight Oats is perfect for summer. It is cold and no cooking involved, PERFECT.
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.

Greek yogurt - Thick creamy and make sure that it is plain variety.
