There is no match for good home made ice-cream. This has the creamy taste of coconut milk enhanced with strawberries.
Preparation time:30 mins Cooking time: 20 mins+ chilling and freezing Serves: 6-8 Recipe Ingredients :
Double cream 300ml
Golden caster sugar 4 tbsp
Coconut milk 300ml
Vanilla extracts ½ tsp
Sweetened dessicated coconut 150g, plus extra to serve
Beat the double cream with half of the sugar until soft peaks form, then stir in the coconuts milk, vanilla extract and dessicated coconut. Divide the mixture into two, and keep chilled.
Process the strawberries with the remaining sugar to make a smooth puree, and then stir this into one of the coconuts mixture. Line a deep square tin (approx 18 x 18cm) with greaseproof paper. Pour the white mixture into the tin and freeze. When almost frozen, pour the pink strawberry layer on top and freeze. Remove the ice cream from its container, sprinkle with dessicated coconuts, and serve in slices.
Tip to make the turning out process easy and to keep things neat and tidy, use two bands of greaseproof paper, each the width of the sides, arranged in a cross shape. If your container has a loose-fitted base, this makes things even easier.
Life always gives big opportunities in the form of small hints. The big move in Pankaj Bhadouria’s life came with a small step when she decided to leave her successful teaching career spanning over 16 years and enter India's 1st televised cookery reality show - MasterChef India on the leading GEC - Star Plus.
And as they say, fortune favours the brave, Pankaj went on to become a worthy winner and with it India's first ever MasterChef.
The comfort of the classroom gave way to the adulations, accolades and a host of achievements. Pankaj hosted her first cookery show - "Chef Pankaj ka Zayka" on Star Plus during Sep-Oct 2011 where she showcased her passion for cooking. The success of this daily show added another flavor to her sweet success.
