Shrikhand (Sweet Strained Yogurt)
32ounces plain full-fat Greek yogurt (CSA variety!) 1 ½cups loosely packed confectioners’ sugar 1cup roasted unsalted or lightly salted pistachios, roughly chopped, plus ⅓ cup for garnish, roughly chopped 1teaspoon saffron threads, finely chopped, plus a pinch for garnish, finely chopped ¼teaspoon cardamom powder Put yogurt in a fine-mesh strainer suspended over a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge. Let excess whey strain for 24 hours. Transfer yogurt to a large mixing bowl, and gently stir in sugar, pistachios, saffron and cardamom. When they are combined, transfer mixture into a serving dish, using an offset spatula to smooth out the top. Evenly sprinkle reserved pistachios and pinch of saffron over the top, and chill for an hour before serving. Shrikhand will keep covered in the fridge for a few days (though the pistachios will soften).
