Nothing quite beats the delicious traditional Padwa lunch of shrikhand-puri but this shrikhand bark, a desi twist on the frozen yoghurt bark is a winner in our books.
Shrikhand, the whipped yoghurt delicacy that is often enjoyed with puris, has been part of festive lunches on Gudi Padwa in most Maharashtrian homes. The fluffy, airy sweetened yoghurt dessert, often flavoured with saffron and cardamom also comes in variations with seasonal fruit like mangoes and strawberries. The probiotic-rich Indian preparation is also known to reduce glycemic index while assimilating the meal, when paired with deep-fried puris.
This shrikhand bark, a take on the classic favourite meal, makes eating shrikhand fun for kids and adults, as well as turns into a portable treat that you can enjoy in bits and pieces, quite literally. The addition of fruits amps up the nutritional value as well as adds some colour and vibrancy to the otherwise basic frozen bark. You can also make a batch of this frozen bark to stash away as a quick and healthy snack for when the sugar cravings kick in.
