Since its my 200th post i wanted to post a sweet dessert recipe and what can be better than a home made strawberry ice cream... i had prepared this some days back as i had loads of strawberries and it came out very well, soft and yummy...I have not used any gelatin in it so its a vegetarian version, but still it was very soft and tasty too...I had also added chopped strawberry pieces which enhanced its taste..we all enjoyed it a lot...but u require little more patience to make it soft.
HAPPY HOLI 2 ALL OF YOU...NJOY IT A LOT...!!!
- 500 ml semi skimmed milk
- 1 cup condensed milk
- 2-3 table spoons milk powder
- 1 cup fresh strawberry puree( or strawberry crush)
- 1/2-3/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 cup chopped strawberry pieces
- 2 tea spoons of corn flour
Take 1/2 cup milk in a bowl and add milk powder and corn flour and stir it well.Boil the remaining milk in a non stick pan.When the milk starts boiling add the corn flour and milk powder mixed milk and stir it countinously on low flame, do not allow any lumps to form.
Stir it countinously and let it simmer on low flame till the mixture thickens and coats on the spoon.Remove it from flame and let it cool.
Now when its cooled add the sugar,strawberry puree and condensed milk and blend it for 1-2 mins till it forms a smooth mixture.Pour it in a container and freeze till firm.
When its set after some hours remove it and blend it again for 1-2 mins till it melts fully and again freeze it for 5-6 hours.Agian blend it and mix the chopped strawberry pieces in it and let it set for 7-8 hours or till it gets firm.
This blending and setting of ice cream is done again and again to make it soft...when the ice cream sets for the first time and u blend it the small ice crystals formed are broken and next time when u set it less ice crystals r formed which u break again in second time blending so ice cream becomes more soft.
After final setting of 7-8 hours ice cream will be ready to serve.Scoop it and drizzle some strawberry crush and serve.
