Lemon Curd Tart

Srikhand is a popular dessert in western India, especially in the summer season. It is available in various flavors such as Mango, pista and kesar and is usually served with fried puris.

This lemon curd tart is a twist to our very own shrikhand-puri combo. Made with hung curd, sugar, lemon and cream cheese, it is a light and refreshing dessert for the season. Lemon curd served in buttery, flaky, pastry tarts gives it a nice texture and cuts the sweetness. Another bonus of the tarts is that they save you from all the trouble of washing greasy bowls.
