Last week we went on a vacation to this hill station in Maharashtra (India) called ‘Mahabaleshwar’. It is a native place for strawberries and though summer is not the best season to grow them, we were tempted to have them anyway. ‘Strawberry with cream and ice cream’ is the most famous strawberry preparation found all over the place and is a must have. It is available at all roadside eateries and is simply divine. Have posted the picture that we took while I was having one. Here is the recipe for the same.
5-6 large strawberries; sliced,
1/4 cup thick cream,
2 tsp confectioners’ sugar,
1-2 scoops of vanilla ice cream,
2 tbsp strawberry syrup.
Whip cream with sugar till peaks are formed. In a tall serving glass, pour some cream to fill 1/4th height of the glass. Put half of the sliced strawberries on the cream. Then add a scoop of ice cream. Top with some strawberry syrup. Again add some sliced strawberries (reserve few to garnish later). Then pour the last layer of cream to fill the glass, evenly spread it, garnish with some sliced strawberries and some more syrup if you like. Delicious strawberry with cream and ice cream is ready to be served.
