Hello!!!!!!!!

I just love Ice cream in any season. I like to whip up soft serve with frozen fruits when you have a sudden craving for desserts or sudden guests at home. Absolutely no cooking involved. Just a few ingredients and a yummy dessert is ready.

Soft serve is a type of ice cream that is softer than regular ice creams as a result of air being introduced during freezing.These days it is commercially sold in many flavours.

This week’s theme for 102 #Foodiemonday #Bloghop is #FirelessCooking and my contribution for this theme is Strawberry Soft Serve. This theme will be very useful for many parents who participate in cooking competitions in their Kid’s school or elsewhere.Do check out all the recipes from my fellow bloggers too for all the amazing ideas.

Recipe for Strawberry Soft Serve:

Ingredients:

10  big Strawberries fresh or frozen

3/4 Tin Condensed Milk

2 Tins Nestle  Cream

1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract

Method:

Freeze fresh strawberries one day before you plan you make the soft serve. You can use store bought frozen strawberries if you plan to make it on the same day.

Puree the frozen strawberries in a blender until they are no lumps. Then add the condensed milk, cream and vanilla essence and pulse it until all the ingredients blend well. Pour this mixture in a metal baking pan. Cover it with a cling wrap and freeze it until firm.

Remove from the freezer 5 minutes before serving . Scoop it and serve it in wafer cones garnished with fresh strawberries.

Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!

Omurice is a popular Japanese food that was originally influenced by Western cuisine. Prepare fried rice and a thin omelette separately, then cover the fried rice in the omelette before serving.I liked this recipe as you can incorporate lot of vegetables into your kid’s diet. It is yummy and they will surely love it.

I made Omurice on my younger son’s demand. He had watched a video of this recipe and wanted me to make it for him. I have made this dish to suit the taste of my family.

You can make a lot of variations to this recipe. Kids will love it and it is so easy to cook. Serve for lunch or dinner.

Heat a heavy Bottom Pan. Add butter and garlic and saute for few seconds. Once the garlic turns crisp, add the green chilli,green bell pepper,yellow bell pepper, red bell pepper, carrot, mushroom, and onion. Stir a few minutes until the onion turns a little translucent. Once done add salt and ground black pepper and mix well. Now add the cooked rice, tomato ketchup, and mix well. Let it cook without stirring for a minute, so that the bottom of the rice gets a little crunchy. Remove from the heat.

Transfer the fried rice to a bowl. Fill about half the cup with the fried rice, then if place the cheese cubes and then fill the rest of the bowl with the balance fried rice.

Keep it aside.

Now let us make the omelette.

Beat 2 eggs in a bowl with salt,pepper powder and sugar.Heat up a non-stick pan. Add  oil and spread the oil .Ensure the pan is properly greased .Turn the heat to medium low, so that the egg is not burnt.Pour the egg mixture into the pan and swirl the pan around to make a nice circle. Keep moving  the pan around and let the low heat cook the egg.Once done switch off the flame.

 To Assemble:

Put a large plate over the bowl of stir-fried rice. Flip everything over and remove the bowl in order to have a perfect dome of fried rice.Place the omelette over top of the dome. Garnish with a cheese cube , sprinkle some pepper or garnish with a bit of ketchup or as you like, and serve hot.

I served Omurice with pan fried Baby corns.
