CONTEST: And the correct answer is...



Homemade Shrikhand!

Saffron gives the shrikhand the yellowish colour and I added some pistachios and elaichi as well.

For those of you who haven't heard of this deliciously creamy and sweet Indian dessert, stay tuned for a simple recipe to make shrikhand at home.

Congratulations to Sandeep, Faffer and Sandhya for winning the first three prizes for guessing the correct answer. Please send your mailing addresses to lools@hotmail.com . Once I've determined how far away from New York you live, I'll announce your prizes accordingly.

A special mention to Indira for linking to this contest from her beautifully designed Indian Food Blog called Mahanandi and all of you for providing me lots of amusement through the comments :)

Did you enjoy this contest? Was it annoying? Did I make you guys wait too long before giving away your answer? Please take a second to give me your feedback. Thanks!

so near and yet so far away.i almost guessed that it was shrikand but then i knew you probabaly didn't know how to make it and it couldn't be something so plain jane.i then decided to pull out 'guacamole' out of my hat.mashed avocadoes can also look yellow!

Hey Lulu, it's the appetite for winning(human nature :-)) and not for the prizes exactly. I cannot speak for others, but you won't believe how happy i am to win this. It made me feel like a food expert(that's the title i want most in life..hehehe).
