How can I Create a Blank PCL/Shared Xamarin.Forms project in Visual Studio?

Currently on creating a blank pcl/shared Xamarin.Forms project in VS I'm getting an error which says that Windows Phone 8 SDK is required. But I am already having VS Update 3 installed on my machine. Am able to create a standalone Win8.1 phone app. But using Xamarin is giving me a hard time. Can anyone please help me out with this?

My Environment: Win8.1 Enterprise x86 + VS2013 Update 3 + Xamrin + Xamarin Studio

    So it means that creating windows 8.1 apps using Xamarin.Forms is not possible as of now, right?
    In case if there's a way, can you point me to the correct documentation/article describing the same.

    @AnkitGupta‌ only 8.0 is supported. See the Requirements section here.
