Saffron Shrikhand | Spanish Saffron by Saffron Direct | A Review

In early December I was contacted by Rajesh of Saffron Direct, who wanted to share their fine quality of Saffron with me. Saffron Direct is based out of London.

Couple of weeks later, I got 4 g of Ruby, Finest Spanish Saffron quality from them. Upon opening the package only I could smell the very faint smell of saffron. This was potent stuff!

The package had 2 small boxes of 2g each. Since in Pune, winters are not severe, I did not foresee myself using so much saffron. Also the best shelf life of saffron with good care is 6 months. So i shared 2g of the saffron with Priyanka.

Initially, I wanted to make Risotto but Masterchef has spoiled it for me, making it sound like a big deal, so I shelved the idea and then decided to make Shrikhand. I have never made or rarely eaten a couple of spoons of it as I am not a fan of sweetened curd. There, my secret is out!

It is quite simple to make. The only big step is to drain the curd overnight. I used home-made curd. To skip the overnight wait, people tend to use Greek yogurt which is a very thick version but it is still not as good as hung curd.

Not to mention, the Shrikhand was a hit. I saved some to take for #PuneFoodiez for The Brooklyn Shuffle meet and Tes took the remaining with her happily.

Saffron Direct is a London-based firm engaged in distribution of finest quality saffron.
