Strawberry with whipped cream is a dessert that is popular in Mahabaleshwar (a hill station in Maharashtra, India). It is served in almost all hotels and restaurants there.

What is served there is usually in tall glasses, but I have served in ice cream cups as this is a rich dessert. I have used amul fresh cream which is 25% fat. You can easily use 35% to 50% fat cream.

This recipe is a simple version of strawberry cream similar to a mixed fruit cream recipe. I have not used ice cream in the recipe. Though you can add one or two scoops of Vanilla ice cream or Strawberry ice cream.

Strawberry cream makes for a nice fruity dessert that can be served after meals. Along with strawberry cream, one more recipe which is a popular snack in Mahabaleshwar is corn patties.

How to make Mahabaleshwar Style Strawberry Cream

1. Rinse, hull and chop 250 grams strawberries. Take them in a bowl.

  1. Hi Dassana,
    The amul cream became wattery after blending with sugar in electric beater. It did not have the creamy texture that we get outside. Plz help

    1. deepa, the cream has got whipped too much. the water that you see is buttermilk and the cream has turned to butter. any cream if beaten or whipped too much will become butter. so while beating, whip in intervals and keep on checking. now you can take the butter and keep in fridge or freezer.

  2. Great Dassana.. 🙂 but one more doubt what’s the difference between sour cream n yogurt ? U mentioned in comment dat add sour cream but not yogurt ..

    1. thanks pooni. sour cream is cream which is made sour. there are many ways of getting the sour taste in the cream like using vinegar or lemon juice or keffir or yogurt culture. yogurt is only made with milk and a starter yogurt culture and cream is not used.

  3. Hi Dassana .. I tried this today.. it’s gud.. I had fruit cream in some small party at home. I remember the taste she prepared its lightly sour taste as well which tastes awesome for me.. so if u have any idea how much yoghurt should add to this cream m lil doubt on dat if u could help..? U r best cook so just asking suggestion.. n giving some variation to u too as well;)

    1. pooni, sour taste could be due to using sour cream or yogurt or adding a few drop of lemon juice in the cream. in this recipe, you can add 2 to 3 tablespoons of fresh yogurt or use 1/4 cup of sour cream. some recipes of fruit cream are also made with sour cream. i have never used sour cream at home, but i have tasted sour cream recipes in hotels. so i know the taste of sour cream. i guess the person must have added sour cream and not yogurt ?
