Blushing Beauties Strawberries
Being botany student, I had read a lot about strawberries but never seen them. I first saw them in a movie, where Julia Roberts gulp them passionately. Lost in the scene I wished to taste these juicy blushing beauties right at the moment. But being in a place where strawberries are just read in books and seen in pictures, I never got a chance to devour these. This dream came through when I came to Bangalore.
One day while shopping in big bazar, I saw neatly arranged, freshly plucked and packed boxes of strawberries. I picked two boxes and after returning home, I hulled few very fast and relished just like that. The first one I ate was sour in taste, the next was little sour and little sweet (khatta meetha). Then I had another which was sweet enough. I fell in love with these berries which are naturally sweet and sour. From that day my fondness for strawberries started and over the period of time, I had relished strawberries in many different ways. When these blushing beauties are in season I make it a point to try out as many recipes as possible, apart from eating them raw. Here are some of my favorite and yummy Strawberry Recipes to try,

Hi Lubna..though i am not a food blogger, food stays as my love. First time on your blog, came from Sayantanis and added to my reader. i must have spent the past 1 hour reading so many posts and especially drooled over your little babys picture.
And look at the co-incidence, we just got back from a small vacation to Mahabaleshwar , the fridge smells of strawberries and last night we had strawberry shake for dessert !

Love this shake
Oh…what a lovely story you had with strawberries. I can't imagine living in a place without any. I think I was introduced to them when I was very young, to a point that I don't remember when. But it was quite expensive so we don't get them often. Now, I eat them all year round and my kids love them so much. Your Strawberry milkshake is beautiful. I love that gorgeous pink. 😉 Hope you had a nice holiday celebration.
