The year 2020 is not particularly the year meant for festivals. Indian festivals have always been about people, and no festival is "festival" enough in India if it does not include a gathering of near and dear ones. Rakhi is one such festival where we love to visit our cousins and relatives, celebrate the auspicious festival with fervour and indulge our hearts out. However, a lot of people, for their own safety, are trying to keep the festival a low-key affair. But should that dampen the festive spirit? We certainly think not! The siblings who reside together or close by can do so many things to make this Rakshabandhan memorable, and it need not be a grand scale gesture at all. Something as simple as baking a cake could do wonders to add a special value to the festival this year. And if you are someone averse to baking - you could try making this 5-minute sundae at home.
This delicious treat requires all of 5 ingredients - you can increase or decrease the ingredients as per your choice and availablity too. We have never heard of someone who is not a fan of ice cream, hence, this sundae is a fool-proof way to bring a smile on your brother's or sister's face. Once you nail this sundae, you would never feel like ordering in any ice-cream from outside.
How To Make 5-Minute Sundae
To begin with, you need to decide the flavour of ice cream that you would like to work with. Vanilla, chocolate, strawberry - there are options galore. You can purchase an ice-cream brick from your nearest ice-cream parlour or dairy, or make it at home.
Here is a recipe of how to make vanilla ice cream at home. Then you need to decide the dressing of your Sunday. This is where you can experiment as much as you want. Add brownie bits, candies, chocolates, chocolate chip, popcorns - the choice is yours. This recipe uses fresh strawberries and nutty almonds. Both of which help uplift the flavour and texture of the ice cream. The sundae is topped off with expresso powder. But you can also play around with some sauce, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce or hazelnut spread, you get the drift right?
Here is the recipe of 5-minute sundae.
Happy Rakshabandhan to all of you!
