Fruit Shrikhand

I am giving a detailed recipe. You can also buy shrikhand or fruit Shrikhand. But it is much nicer, made at home.

You will need –

  • 2-1/2 litres milk
  • 1 tblsp. Curd
  • 2-1/2 cups (or according to taste) sugar
  • essence of your choice
  • 100 gms. seedless grapes
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 large apple or 2 medium sized ones
  • 3 chikoos
  • 2 oranges.


  1. Bring the milk to a boil, and cool. When it is lukewarm, add the curd – lightly beaten, and 1/4 tsp. sugar. Mix well, cover and keep in a warm place.
  2. The curd will be ready in 6 to 8 hours depending on the weather. Take a large cloth and a length of tape. Dampen the cloth and pour the curd over it, keeping the cloth on a shallow basin.
  3. Bring the sides together and tie them together tightly in such a way that you can hang the curd and collect the dripping liquid.
  4. This liquid – whey – is very tasty and can be used to make the kadhi. When the curd almost stop dripping, remove.
  5. Pass the curd through a strainer along with the sugar, so that you get a smooth and well-mixed shrikhand. Adjust the sugar according to your taste.
  6. If it is too thick, add a little milk. Add the essence. Wash, peel and chop the fruits in small bits and mix with the shrikhand. Keep in the fridge till serving time.
