Directions

  1. Tie a sheet of cheesecloth over a large bowl. Pour the yogurt onto the cheesecloth and place in refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours to drain. Press the yogurt firmly with a spoon to release any excess liquid. The remaining yogurt should be thick. Transfer the yogurt to a clean bowl.
  2. Soak the saffron threads in the warm milk for 10 minutes; stir into the yogurt. Add the sugar, pistachio nuts, and cardamom and mix well. Stir the food coloring into the mixture until you get the color you like. Refrigerate until completely chilled, about 1 hour.

it would help to hang the yougurt overnight instead of just for 2-3 hours. Traditional Gujurati shrikhand is very thick, and I found that it was still a bit watery after hanging for 3 hrs, esp if you have to add 2tbsp milk with the saffron

I found this recipe while looking for saffron uses. I made it because it sounds like a hit just by reading the recipe. If you leave out the saffron and use green food coloring instead of yellow, call it pistachio pudding and you've got a hit.
