This Middle-Eastern dessert is as simple as can be. Its sweet-tart flavor is wonderful when paired with a crisp cookie or fried dough. The end result is supposed to be just a bit tart, but add a bit more honey if desired.
The only time-intensive part of this recipe is the overnight straining of the yogurt, so do plan ahead for that. Shrikhand makes a fresh addition to pancakes, cookies, or other dense baked goods.
