Shrikhand is a semi soft, sweetish sour, whole milk product prepared from lactic fermented curd. The curd (dahi) is partially strained through a cloth to remove the whey and thus produce a solid mass called chakka (the basic ingredient for Shrikhand).

Shrikhand (probiotic) when eaten with deep fried poori, is a meal with low glycemic index. Also, since fat is important for feeling of satiety, it reduces chances of overeating. This simple meal is healthy and safe for all, including people with obesity, diabetes or heart disease.
