In my house I eat shrikhand from my childhood my granny, mother, aunt everyone makes shrikhand .whenever we saw a bag hang on a basic tap or bag hang to the window we know that definitely aae ( means Mother in Marathi ) is going to make shrikhand today.
For making srikhand, it is essential to have nice, fresh, and sour curd. In my house also my husband and son love shrikhand a lot every month we make shrikhand at home it basically just hung curd mix with sugar.
I always make shrikhand at my home one day I called mother in law and said today I am making shrikhand so she said just one-time sieve with stainer so that shrikhand and see result what happen.
So I follow her instructions and sieve shrikhand from stainer and the result was quite surprising I got super soft shrikhand. Taste also comes better.
