Whipping cream- Any cream with a fat percentage of 30 or more can be used for this dessert. In a humid climate, place the bowl and beaters in the freezer for 15 min before pouring the cream into the bowl. Whip cream on medium to high speed. Care should be taken not to over whip the cream. To know if cream is whipped to the right consistency, lift the beaters once the cream starts turning thick and you should be able to see the trail. Additionally, you can place the bowl on an ice bath to whip quickly. Here I have used whipping cream by Elle &Vire. And I like to use dairy based whipping cream in all my recipes as it's healthier and tastier compared to the alternatives. Make sure you buy cream from a good store and it's chilled, not frozen. Store in the refrigerator. And after measuring the cream into your bowl, refrigerate the cream if you are not using it right away. Whipped cream can also be stored in the refrigerator for two to three days.
Fruit puree- . I like to use frozen puree as it can be availed throughout the year. Something that can be stored in your freezer for more than a year. Ideal for making fruit flavored ice creams, sorbes and smoothies.
Gelatine- Powder gelatin is always soaked in ice cold water in a 1:5 ratio,i.e. one part of gelatin is dissolved in 5 parts of water. Here I have used gealtine of 200 blooms. Bloom specifies the strength of the gelatin. For this recipe any flavorless gelatin powder that’s available in super markets can be used. Make sure the bloomed gelatin is melted and not boiled during heating it up.
Fresh berries- Raspberries, strawberries, cherries, black currants or a mixture of two or more berries can be used in this recipe.
Substitutions- Greek yogurt can be substituted with hung yogurt in case of unavailability. Make sure yogurt is not too sour or fermented while substituting with homemade yogurt. Sour cream can be substituted by mixing an equal proportion of greek yogurt with heavy cream. For eg: to substitute 100 gms of sourcream, mix 50gms greek yogurt with 50 gms of cream.
