Gudi Padwa Recipe – Nutty Fruity Shrikhand

April 5, 2019

Tomorrow is the first day of the month of Chaitra when we will be celebrating Gudi Padwa which is the beginning of a new year. As with every festival, we welcome the new year with a variety of sweets. However, for diabetics, most sweets are an overdose of sugar.

That’s why, Wellness Diabetes Speciality Clinics brings you a special, low-fat, low-sugar shrikhand that you can enjoy, this Gudi Padwa.


  1. 1/2 cup chopped mixed fruits (apple, pear and orange)
  2. 1/2 cup hung low-fat dahi (refer handy tip)
  3. 1 tbsp warm low-fat milk 
  4. a few kesar strands
  5. 1 tsp sugar substitute
  6. a pinch of elaichi powder
  7. 2 tbsp chopped almonds and walnuts.


  1. Combine the milk and kesar in a small bowl and mix well till the kesar dissolves. Keep aside.
  2. Combine the dahi, kesar-milk mixture, sugar substitute and cardamom powder in a bowl and mix well using a whisk.
  3. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
  4. Just before serving, mix the fruits, chopped nuts and shrikhand.
  5. Serve shrikhand immediately.

Handy tip:

2 cups of low-fat curds, when tied in a muslin cloth and hung for 1½ hours, will yield 1 cup of hung low-fat curds.
