Whipping Cream

For whipping the cream, you need to prepare a bit:

First get yourself some nice (whipping) cream and put it in the fridge, not the freezer, so that its very cold but not frozen, few hours is enough. Don’t use the Amul fresh cream that you get in the tetra pack. This method doesn’t work with this cream. You will need to ask for whipping cream or double cream from a good dairy. In Bangalore you get it in Spar.

You will need 2 bowls, one big, you will be making an ice bath in it for the second smaller bowl. Put these in the freezer, so they are very cold. Also, the beater parts of your electric whipper (don’t even try this by hand) can be put in the freezer to make very cold. You will also need ice and a bottle of cold water.

Once everything is cold, move fairly quickly.

In the big bowl, pour some of the cold water and a few ice cubes and place the smaller bowl in that ice bath. Add the cream to the smaller bowl, till its about 1/3rd full, definitely not more than 1/2 full.

Whip the cream with your whipper, until soft peaks form when you remove the beater.

Now, add some powdered sugar (you can make it by powdering organic crystal sugar, khadi shakkar or mishri), about 2 tablespoons for 1 liter of cream is enough, add more if you want it sweeter. Finally add a tablespoon of vanilla essence. Whip again. And stop in about a minute if you want cream that forms soft peaks.

If you whip too long, the cream will separate and you will get butter, so be careful about that. Just before the cream becomes butter, it will get a very slight yellowish tinge. Stop whipping immediately then.

Stiffly whipped cream will form firm peaks and the blender will leave a trail in the cream.

Put the whipped cream into the fridge… it stays for some time, people say 1 week or so. I don’t know, every time i make whipped cream it gets over in about 6 minutes 🙂

Here is a very nice video for whipping cream
