Fresh / strawberries - 1 cup washed, stems trimmed, and chopped in peice
water - 1/4 cup
sugar - 1 cup
Corn starch - 2 tbsp
Red food colour
Take a clean pot and add the chopped strawberries, sugar and water. Put it on medium heat and allow it to simmer.
In a small bowl add 2 tbsp of water, corn starch and food colour, mix it well and keep it aside.
When the strawberries reaches the boiling point, add the corn starch, keep stirring until it becomes thick.
Take it off the stove and allow it to cool. Store it in a bottle and refrigerate.
Tip: The entire process should not take more than 10-15 mins. Don't let the strawberries cook till it is mushy. let the chunks of strawberries float in the sauce.
