Lot of debate and fuss going on about ‘Whether Valentine’s Day should be celebrated here or not?’I don’t understand what’s the big deal? Leave it to individuals to decide what they should do.
Anyway, speaking of Valentine’s Day my father married his Valentine (my mom of course) 40 yrs ago on this day! So they have been celebrating this day for the last 40 yrs J. We always tease my parents that they are very modern for their generation. So we are anyway going to have a party!
Coming to the Strawberry Murabba like I said in my earlier post strawberries are available in plenty. Unlike me my hubby loves sweets…as in swwwweeeetttts (superlative) and my son though not very fond of sweets occasionally likes ‘Jam’ with his roti .I made this simple and easy sweet Murraba for the two Valentine’s in my life-My hubby and my little son.
For strawberry Murabba
1 cup strawberries thoroughly washed, wiped, stems removed and sliced. Choose thick and juicy strawberries.
1 ½ cups sugar
1 cup water
Mix the sugar and water in a pan and heat this mixture till you get a saturated solution (we call this pakka pak) or till the sugar almost starts recrystalizing.Add the Strawberries to this syrup and cook for ~ 10 more minutes. The mixture should boil nicely (about 8-9 boils). Once the Murabba cools store in a sterilized jar. Store in the refrigerator.Serve with Rotis or wheat bread. Or top strawberry ice-cream or vanilla ice-cream with this yummy sweet and sour Strawberry Murraba!
