Shrikhand

Ingredients
  Non fat plain yogurt 500 Gram (1.1 Pound low-fat or any other plain yogurt works just fine)
  Sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Rose water 1 Tablespoon
  Green cardamoms 4
  Almonds 3
  Pistachios 5
  Saffron 1 Pinch
Directions

Tie the yogurt in a muslin cloth/cheese cloth or any thin cotton cloth & hang it by the kitchen wash basin/tie the cloth to the tap of the basin. This procedure will drain the water/whey from the yogurt. Depending on the thickness of the yogurt, it will take around 3 - 5 hours for the whey to completely drain. Make sure the whey completely drains from the cloth.

Roast almonds & pistachios until almonds turn slightly brownish. Grind them into a powder along with the cardamoms.

Remove yogurt from the cloth. Add it into a bowl. Add sugar, saffron strands, powdered nuts, rose water (optional) & blend it well with a hand-held/electric blender.

Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

You may garnish with a few saffron strands if you wish.

Story
This is a traditional Gujarati dessert. I loved 'Shrikhand' as a child & the first time I savoured it was at one of my gujarati friends place in India. I tried making some with a small variation of mixing powdered nuts and lesser sugar and it turned out really good.
