This is the first post of the year 2017. I made this for the Valentine / Red Theme in the group, " Shhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge " . I was paired with Rafeeda A R who blogs at The Big Sweet Tooth . She gave me the two secret ingredients - Strawberries and Yogurt . I was very happy as it is strawberry season now in India and was wanting to make something nice with them.
Strawberries .... 100 gms + few for garnishing
Greek yogurt .... 200 gms
Condensed milk .. 200 gms
Cream ............... 200 gms
Corn starch ....... 1 tsp
Strawberry crush / compote .. 3-4 tbsps or as needed
1. Crush the strawberries coarsely.
2. In a bowl mix together the yogurt, corn starch, cream and condensed milk. Stir in the crushed strawberries.
3.Take a heart shaped or any baking tin and spoon the mixture. Place it in a large baking dish and pour hot water around till it reaches more than half the sides of the dish that you are baking in.
4.You can even bake in individual ramekins.
5. Place it in a pre-heated oven and bake for about 25- 30 minutes. Just keep checking and you will see the surface is done then it is ready.The time differs a little depending on the size and quantity you are baking. Ramekins will be done faster.A large dish can take upto 45 minutes
To make Strawberry Compote
Strawberries .. 200 gms
Sugar .... 2-3 tbsps (depending on the sourness of strawberries)
Kirsch ... 1 tbsp (optional)
Wash and cut the strawberries. Blend them in a mixie. Cook them in a thick bottomed pan adding sugar. Stir continuously until the sugar is dissolved and the texture is thicker. Let it cool. Add the kirsch at after cooling if you like it.
I had made plain baked yogurt and topped it with strawberry jam, that itself was amazing so then with the strawberry itself in it, it would taste out of the world... what a lovely selection of recipe... glad to be paired with you... :)ReplyDelete
