I had some leftover sour cream from last weekend, so I decided to make shrikhand out of it. It turned out just like you get at any Indian store here.
Here is the recipe for home made shrikhand.
2 cups sour cream (full fat version works the best)
1/2 cup full fat yogurt
1/4 cup sugar (adjust the quantity per your taste)
1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder
1/2 teaspoon cardamom seeds
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg powder
6-7 strands saffron (Kesar), (Optional for color)
2 teaspoon water
1/4 Cup Chopped almonds
Combine the sour cream, yogurt and sugar in bowl and mix well. Transfer into a muslin cloth, and hang for at least 5-6 hours so that all the water drains out. Once all the water drains out, transfer to a bowl and add the cardamom seeds, cardamom powder and nutmeg powder.
Refrigerate for 5-6 hours. Garnish with chopped almonds and serve in individual bowls.
