Happy Holi...... and a yummy dessert....

Its been 4 days since I returned.... Surprisingly enough there is no jet lag and I feel totally fresh and perky in the morning... Yesterday being Holi I decided to cook a proper dinner for C who had been surviving on take -aways for the last 1 month.....

I cooked paneer khichuri, Chicken keema and this yummy dessert....... I will post the recipes for the former two later...... today its 'Shrikhand' time..... Learnt this form my Sister who stays in Delhi and thanks to her I gathered the recipe for an easy dessert....

Ingredients:(for two)

Unsweetened curd-2 cups
A clean white muslin cloth
Sugar-4tbsp or according to taste
Chopped pistachios-a handful
Black cardamom powder-a pinch

Hang the curd in the white cloth for 3-4 hours till all the water drains out.
Next transfer the curd in a serving bowl(not steel) and add the sugar.
Beat the curd until the sugar melts and the curd is thick and creamy.
Sprinkle the cardamom powder and the pistachios.
Refrigerate until you serve.
Serve chilled.
