Shrikhand with Fennel and Cardamom

Shrikhand is flavored, thick sweet yogurt. When I came to Gujarat, and was offered Shrikhand, I refused to eat it.Curd and sweet, an absolute no no.Trust me all these years have passed by and it is only after I started blogging, I tasted it.I felt I should know the basic flavor of the dish to get it right. I will confess that it is actually not as bad as I thought, it is just that one needs to develop certain flavors.At home everyone likes it, specially with a poori. Now liking and eating are two different stories. Let us not get into that.
