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.


  • 6 cups whole milk yogurt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Pinch of cardamom
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 2 tablespoons chopped nuts (pistachios, almonds, or walnuts)


  1. Strain plain yogurt overnight.
  2. Once straining is complete, whisk in honey and spices. Fold in raisins and nuts.
  3. Cover and transfer to refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.
