Whole milk- 1 cup
Heavy Cream-3 cup ( 1 1/2 pints)
Strawberry Puree- 1 1/3 cup
Chopped strawberry- 1/3 cup
Sugar- 1 cup
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Process strawberries along with 1/2 cup of sugar in a food processor or blender until it is very smooth. Strain the puree into a bowl, pressing on pulp in strainer and allow to chill in refrigerator.
Bring milk and cream to a slight boil or till you see bubbles around the pan,switch off and vanilla essence and let it cool for half an hour or room temperature.
Mix in the rest of the cream and sugar and mix till sugar dissolves. Chill this for an hour in the refrigerator.
Once you are ready to make the ice cream, mix the strawberry puree with the cream mixture and pour into ice cream machine along with chopped strawberries. Churn- freeze the mixture in the machine till set or till you attain a desired consistency. It will take about 20-25 minutes. At this stage it will be soft ice cream and you can serve immediately or remove and transfer to freezer until it is firm( for two hours). It will remain in the freezer for more than a week. Enjoy!
