Kesar Elaichi Shrikhand

Shrikhand is one of the easiest sweets to make. It is also very hassle-free and quick; provided we are ready with the hung curd. Once hung curd/chakka is ready, then it hardly takes 5-10 minutes to assemble everything. So if you have guests coming over, you just have to tie the curd in advance. Once that is handy then you don’t need to worry about the preparation of sweet/dessert anymore and can focus on main course and starters.
