Strawberry Ice Cream – Ice Cream Recipes

July 14, 2018 Ice Creams  One comment

Strawberries are in season. I am not a big fan of strawberries as such, just like the look of it and its attractive colour. But I love the smell and flavour in the Strawberry Ice Cream. This is yet another simple no churn ice cream. U dont need an ice cream machine or hand blender, a normal mixie jar would do the job perfectly. And also no need to whip it every 2 hours unlike this Custard Powder Ice Cream. Easy is it not!?! Utilise the summer/strawberry season and enjoy! πŸ™‚

Spring Onion is a veggie which many of u might use just to garnish in salads or soups. This Spring Onion Sabji is a simple yet yummy side dish to go with chapathi or even rice.
