Sugar - 1/2 cup
Saffron - few threads
Nutmeg powder - 1/8 tsp
Roasted nuts - 1 Tbsp
1. Put curd in a soft cloth and tie it. Then put a sieve on a bowl and put the curd on the sieve. Keep it overnight so that extra water in the curd will drain off.
2. Add all the above ingredients except nuts and mix it well.
3. Set the shrikhand in a bowl and refrigerate it.
4. Garnish it with roasted nuts.
