Biji Salak

It’s time again for MFB Challenge & this month Indonesian cuisine was chosen. After a long time I have started participating in different challenges. These challenges force me to move  out from my comfort zone and try different cuisine. Which I am pretty sure , I won’t attempt otherwise.I googled many recipes for Indonesian food. At a time I was a bit confused as lots of recipes had similarity to Malaysian cuisine.

Strawberry Slush. Frozen Strawberries with loads of minty flavor for the upcoming summers.

Strawberry Slush

It is spring reminding us that summer is just around the corner.  Every week K  just gets greedy seeing the ripe & luscious strawberries in the market. And the result is my freezer is loaded with ample amount of strawberry.  I have made pies to cakes , icecream to sorbets, smoothies to shakes, or eaten raw or sometime with chocolate. But the remaining are  still stacking up in my freezer. So thus this quickie strawberry slush.

Strawberry Slush

I have made strawberry slush with the combination of mint & lemon. Churned together frozen strawberries , mint , lemon & honey if it is sour. Jaggery also gives a good taste.There are no particular measurements for this recipe. If you are more inclined towards mint, add more mint for minty flavor. Or more lemon for  more sourness.
