Indian dessert with yogurt and strawberries (Fruit Shrikhand)

This type of dessert with yogurt and strawberries is based on a Shrikhand - Indian dessert consisting of a sweetened yogurt, flavored with saffron and cardamom - whose variation often practiced, is adding fresh fruit or mashed, be finely chopped and mixed in yogurt, resulting in a Fruit Shrikhand.
It is an easy dessert, light and refreshing, extremely flavorful, healthy, you can serve without any care when you have guests. Prepare quickly, as you can see, the only details that should tell you is:
  • Careful of the type of yogurt you use - you need a thick yogurt without some whey, such as Greek yogurt, if you can not find Greek yogurt, another which I have successfully used this recipe is Danone yogurt.
  • Use only fruit that does not leave much juice, especially if you decide to mash them, because otherwise desert consistency will suffer.

To prepare you need the following ingredients: 280 g yoghurt 100 g strawberries, 15 g raw cashews, raw almonds 15 g, 3 heaping tablespoons powdered sugar, 3 green cardamom pods, a pinch of saffron, 1 tablespoon rose water.

Indian dessert with yogurt Preparation: Start by preparing ingredients so you have them handy, because it will take very little preparation.

Soak saffron in rose water. Crush the cardamom pods, shells give them away (you will throw) and seeds grind them.

Coarse Grind cashew nuts and almonds, strawberries and cut them into small cubes.

At this point, you have all the ingredients ready and you can proceed to preparation.

Put powdered sugar over yogurt and stir with a whisk until the sugar melts and you get a smooth and homogeneous cream.

Add to bowl ground cardamom, cashew nuts and almonds, saffron and rose water and blend to mix.

Finally, add the strawberries and toss again gently.

Dessert is ready! Put the cups, decorated with pieces of fruit and put in the fridge, so when you will be served cold.

As I said in the beginning, is a dessert that you can prepare with other fruits. I've never tried it, besides strawberries with mango and bananas (which I passed), but with pineapple compote, which I cut into small pieces and, later, I left a little to drain.
