The Gourmet Shikhran

There is absolutely nothing very great about Shikhran yet every marathi kid holds a special affection towards Shikhran.

Shikhran or Banana Custard (if I may call it so) is a assembly of ripe Banana smash into some cold milk with some sugar and drizzled with cardamom powder. 

Yes that's it. So how will you make a simple Shikhran, MasterChef worthy. 

Let me show you how 😉


6 Riped Bananas
3 tbsp of Sugar 
2 tbsp of Milk
2 spoons of Coconut milk
1 cup of Fresh cream
1 cup of sliced pistachios
Some Chia seeds
Some strands of kesar
Drizzle of honey
Pinch of Cardamom powder


Step 1: Smash those ripe bananas into a bowl, add sugar, milk and cream. Whip it well, till it forms like mousse like consistency. Add cardamom powder and mix. Keep it aside.

Step 2: Soak the kesar strands in coconut milk till it gets a golden hue. Also, slice the pistachios as fine as possible. 

Step 3: Presentation is the key here so you can layer up like biryani or just mix kesar mixture and the banana mix. Then place it into shot glasses or one big bowl, layer up with pistachios, chia seeds and use some honey to draw a zigzag pattern just ampe up the Gourmet feeling. 

Step 4: Chill the dessert well before serving. Chia seeds give it a pudding like feeling and the cream makes it heavenly sinful.

Hope you guys try this simple yet heavenly dessert and make Shikhran the most trending dish in your household.
