Mind blowing Real 🍓 Strawberry flavour in this icecream!

No icecream maker needed to make this incredibly delicious icecream!

The flavour of this stellar Strawberry icecream solely relies on a handful of fresh strawberry fruits that are straight from terrace garden to kitchen top.

I used fresh Strawberry fruits, Condensed milk, Whipping Cream - only three ingredients to make this delicious dessert.

Remove the green part of the fruit. Fruits are so soft with plenty of tiny seeds. No need to chop.

Just transfer and blend them until smooth puree.

Set ready.

Transfer the Milky mist dairy Cream (I used here) to a dry mixing bowl. This cream is of 25% fat and is available in all super markets and online grocery stores. You can use any dairy whipping cream available in stores.

Whip the cream using a blender to make this cream soft and fluffy. This is a plain cream not a whipping cream. We need only dairy cream for this recipe.

Add sweetened Condensed milk (Milkmaid Condensed milk) 400 gm.

Mix to combine well.

Add Strawberry puree

Mix roughly to mix.

Use blender to combine together. 

Pour the mixture to the airtight container. 

Place the airtight container to freezer compartment for 8 hours or overnight.

Replace it for about 10 minutes in the refrigerator before serving.

Perfectly set!
No ice crystals!
Ease efforts!

Scoop out in a bowl!

Tempting baby pink icecream!
Unique and natural Strawberry flavour!

Some important tips to make Pongal absolutely scrumptious:

1. How to make Jaggery syrup:

Heat a sauce pan with crushed Jaggery with water of above mentioned quantity.
Bring to boil on high flame.
Let  Jaggery dissolved in water completely. 
Bring boiling until the syrup gets thickened sticky. Just check the sticky consistency with forefinger and
thumb. Switch off the heat

Store-bought Jaggery may contain sand or tiny stones and some dirt. So we have to strain it and add to the cooked rice. We can strain directly into the mashed rice conents.

How to cook the rice contents?

The Rice and Moong Dal should be cooked on low heat until the first whistle.

The pressure of the cooker should be released of its own time.

Then open the lid and mash the cooked rice contents using a masher.

Now the Rice contents are ready to get another step.


Add one tbsp Fresh Desi ghee.

 Mix thoroughly.


3. How to fry Cashews and Raisins?

Add Ghee to a tempering pan. 

Fry the Cashews first until golden brown on low heat.

Turn off the heat and and add Raisins.

Saute in  Ghee until they puffed up.

Transfer to the Pongal content and mix them.

4. When Edible Camphor, Saffron Strands and Cardamom?

It will be very flavourful when they added at final stage.


Easy procedure! Divine taste!


Fresh Cow Ghee 2 tbsp+2 tsp
