Its a tale of Valentines Day this year. My husband isn’t a big fan of celebrating such ‘western’ events and hence the day passed pretty much like any other day, except that I was really bored that day since I didn’t have any cooking or any other chore to do. So I thought of going through some recipes online. Suddenly it hit me that my husband had vaguely hinted a few times that I don’t make any dessert with strawberries, strawberry being his most favorite fruit.
So, well, I started searching and I came across this recipe video of strawberry muffins by Chef Rahat. The recipe seemed quite interesting as it used fresh strawberry chunks and the final look of the muffins was so tempting that I decided to try it the next day. And so I did, and the result was amazing. It looked truly like muffins (unlike some recipes where the muffins end up looking more like cupcakes!) and tasted really delicious specially because of the soft strawberry chunks.
