The wait is over and my favourite seasonal fruit, Strawberry is in the market. Road side stalls, fruit shops and farmer markets are all selling strawberries. They are too tempting to be ignored.Once I spot them, I cannot pass without buying them.

Although you can make a number of great tasting drinks with strawberries, the most delicious and the easiest recipe that you can make is fresh Strawberry Juice. It is refreshing, full of Vitamin C and antioxidants. The sweet delicious taste compliments  the bright red colour very well, which  makes it irresistible for young and old alike.

Ingredients:

  • Strawberries – 1 cup
  • Sugar – 3 – 4 tablespoon
  • Water – 1 cup
  • Lemon Juice – 1 tablespoon
  • Pinch black salt – pinch or to taste

Instructions:

  • Wash strawberries well and remove the stems.
  • Add all the ingredients in the blender and blend them well until smooth.
  • You can optionally remove the foam formed on the juice using a mesh strainer.
  • Serve chilled.
  • Place a halved strawberry on the rim of your glass for a more tempting presentation.

I am trained to be an IT professional. I served National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) for six years after graduating from the same university. As long as I can remember, cooking good food has been my passion and it makes me happy. My cooking lessons were a bit unusual though. Back in the day when digital did not mean much, my father would record cooking shows (knorr ka kitchen, kaukab khuwaja and Zee Khana Khazana – Chef Sanjeev Kapoor) for me to watch endless times later on, before trying the recipes out. I would make brownies and cold cake almost every day while my mother was asleep. This was my way of surprising her every evening. My mother cooks amazing food too and I have tried many of the recipes written in her recipe book. I draw inspiration from a number of chefs from televised cooking shows such as Late Chef Farah, Chef Rahat, Chef Mehboob, BBC Food, Masala TV, Chef Shai, Chef Sharmeen, Master Chef Australia and my ultimate favorite Chef Shireen Anwer. I would not be as good a cook I am now without passive guidance from each one of these.
