This month of December and chilling winters remind me of hot ginger chais and strawberries that were bought in bulk from our annual family trip, mostly at the most convenient hill station for Mumbaikars, Mahabaleshwar! Today, the local markets are flooded with fresh Strawberries, but few decades ago, strawberries were a rare priviledge. And the glorious sinful desert, Strawberry with Cream only a Mahabaleshwar special treat!
Strawberries with Cream is my attempt to replicate the same taste and revive some old memories!

- 200 ml Fresh Cream (Amul works well)
- 1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 2 Scoops or small Cups Vanilla Ice cream
