1.  In a muslin cloth, pour the yogurt. Tie a knot around the cloth, to make sure the yogurt does not spill.

2.  Hang the tied cloth with yogurt to the kitchen sink tap so that all the water from yogurt has drained out.

3.  Keep it for around 2- 3 hrs.

4.  Transfer the hung curd left in the cloth to a bowl.

5.  Add cardamom powder and crushed cardamom.

6.  Beat it with spoon so that the grainy texture is gone and it will turn to soft and silky texture.This should take around 3 mins.

7.  Add sugar to this and beat it till sugar is dissolved. Check for the taste and add more sugar.

8.  This will take around 5-6 mins.

9.  Add dry fruits and mix well.

10.  Serve chilled and enjoy!!

Cooks' note:
I have used approximately 3/4 Cup sugar, as I like shrikhand semi sweet. You can adjust the sugar quantity as per choice.
Do not over beat it as it might start giving some oily texture for the shrikhand.
