Instant shrikhand recipe with sour cream(Substitute of Yogurt)

Make shrikhand just in three minutes. Is it believable? Classic shrikhand recipe takes too much time and effort so I always bored upon making shrikhand at home but today I’ve tried to make shrikhand with Sour Cream and it turns out very well.

  • 1 tsp cardamom powder (elaichi)
  • Fruit chunks and nuts are optional

Preparation for Shrikhand:

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and mix it for 2-3 minutes. Garnish with nuts,, refrigerate it and you are done. Isn’t it easy? Serve chilled shrikhand with Puri..Yummm!!
