Shrikhand with apricots


2 cups hung Yogurt,
3/4 cup sugar,
5-6 golden Apricots and
4-5 sliced pistachios

Slice the golden apricots. Cook them in a pan with 1 cup water and 1 tbsp sugar on low heat for 15-20 minutes. In another bowl, mix the hung yogurt with the remaining sugar and mix well. Put this yogurt in a muslin cloth and squeeze it.
Put the shrikhand in stemmed glasses/ serving bowls . Drain the stewed apricots and put them on top of the shrikhand. Garnish with the pistachios and serve chilled.

I am not familiar with some of the terms, such as hung yogurt, but I like yogurt very much. Is it like Greek yogurt, that is, very thick? The rest of the ingredients sound delicious and would make a lovely dish indeed.

Katy, Hung yogurt is nothing but very thick yogurt. You should hang the yogurt in a muslin cloth for sometime or till all the water drips from it. It comes out very thick.
Hope I answered your question :)And indeed it turns out lovely and Yummy with Apricot on it.

Apricots in Shrikhand sounds like a great doubt though,can I replace fresh apricots with dried ones??

Faiza Ali said...

Thanks Mona.
And thanks Shanti for the award :)

Divya, Actually the fresh apricots look very colorful and tastes yummy with the shrikhand.The dried apricot gives different color and will make a difference. But I guess it will not make a huge difference though.
