         Today's recipe is again #diwalispecial. On this heavenly occasion, I would like to share a recipe which has 3 different variations. Yes! you read it write. 3 in 1 recipe. Open your imagination and make this recipe with lots & lots variations too. I am going to share Kiwi & Blueberry Shrikhand Tart recipe today. Shrikhand is one of the famous Indian dessert. It is a most popular dessert in Gujarat and Maharastra but, nowadays everyone knows about Shrikhand. There are some interesting variations in this recipe. Normally Shrikhand is made with yogurt, sugar, cardamom and saffron milk. I love this dessert mainly because it is easy and uses simple ingredients.  I just serve this Shrikhand with some twist. The twist is "tart", I'm going to serve this sapid Kiwi & Blueberry Shrikhand on Tart. Something new for family and friends on this Diwali. Hope you will enjoy it too. With festivals around the coener I have been busy making snacks and sweets.:)  Glancing at my drafts I found this simple recipe and decided to bring it to light on this bright Diwali festival. I made Kiwi Shrikhand and Blueberry Shrikhand. Besides these two, I thought to combine both kiwi and blueberry puree and made another flavor of Shrikhand, kiwi-blueberry Shrikhnad and believe me it came out heavenly yummy. I insist you all to try this recipe for sure. So let the festival season with some sweet, shall we?
