Homemade Fresh Cream
Homemade Fresh Cream - Doesn't that sound interesting? Once you get the hang of making homemade cream and butter at home then I am sure you will not go in for store bought ones.But I agree it takes time but the when you see the end product, it is all worth the wait.I have never got cream from shops whenever I make gravies that calls for cream like PB masala,paneer tikka masala , methi matar malai etc.And trust me add few tbsp of fresh for any gravy, it takes the gravy to a whole new level .

I have got amul fresh cream tetra packs twice for making strawberry and mango cheese cakes as homemade cream is not suitable and advisable for desserts like these and yes that's a word of caution I tell in advance :)

Recipe Category: Homemade | Recipe Cuisine: World

Milk

Method:

  1. Heat milk and boil for sometime say 3-5mins(depends on what type of milk you get).After the milk is boiled, let is sit aside for 30mins or few hours in the fridge so that thick malai gets collected at the top. Carefully take the malai with a spoon and collect it in a clean container else you can use a strainer to take the malai. I usually collect the malai whenever I boil milk so twice a day. The malai quantity depends on the type of milk you get.

  2. Keep collecting the malai in the same container and refrigerate it. Keep refrigerated and let it sit for atleast 1 day for your instant cream say if you need just few tbsps.Just whisk it well and Your cream is ready to use. But if you want it in bulk then keep collecting for atleast 10-15 days or till you think you have a fair amount of malai collected.
