Piyush - A Creamy Drink of Shrikhand & Buttermilk

When we combine shrikhand & buttermilk together in right quantity, a beautiful drink comes out. With the almonds, pistachio and saffron decoration makes this drink even more exotic during summer.

I remember drinking the Piyush at a small stall in mumbai and i fall in love with it. I came home and started searching the recipe over the internet. I found some recipes which are really very easy and quick. I tried one of them but did not work well. Then i tried again after 2 days, and the resulting drink was yummy

I am an SEO expert by profession. That is one side of the coin. The other side is my enduring passion for cooking, particularly Indian cuisine in all its glorious splendour. I revel in traditional and more modernistic experimental cooking with an Indian slant. The permutations are endless. I could spend my whole life and still find something new in Indian cooking. I find time from my profession and a busy family life to try out dishes, dream up combos and share them with you. Food is one of the pleasures of life that can be enjoyed at any age and tastes change according to age so I tailor recipes to suit all preferences.
