“It is not good for all our wishes to be filled; through sickness we recognize the value of health; through evil, the value of good; through hunger, the value of food; through exertion, the value of rest.”

new what I am presenting here, but because it was my Iftaar item today so how
could I not share it :)
the fastest way to make these is:
out-Fill in-Bake-Ready J
used the cheat dough, I thought why should I give myself and my eyes a bad
conscious adding those blocks of butter in the dough:) Sometimes it’s better to keep things
did was, took one sheet of the Puff Pastry and after dusting with flour I
rolled it out quite thin.
to take away its extreme flaky high volume structure. It really works.
time saving solution for a quick savory snack,in this case a full meal,as I
filled it with mincemeat and potato and sprinkled cheese on the top.
we don’t make a curry out of the mince, we just boil it with spices we like and
dry it up to the last drop of water so that it does not make the pastry soggy.
to your choice, you can do any filling, I make it with onion and mushrooms,
with spinach and cheese and with mix vegetable beaten in an egg.
picture seems a bit yellowish, it is actually very nice light cream but I think
my camera acteda bit too yellowish in
the dark today :)
need to do is as follows, easy peasy and a quicky :
onion (in fine slices)
of garlic (chopped)
following spices accordingly:
chili flakes to taste
spices (garam masala)
medium potatoes (in cubes)
mix all the above ingredients in a pot, add ½ glass of water and let it cook
around 15 minutes, there will still be water so add the cubes of potatoes and
let it cook
cubes will cook fast, so then just dry the water till the last drop
cool down completely´
of flaky pastry/Puff pastry
out really thin, it fluffs up either way :)
around 10 cm circles to fit in the muffin tray
no special cutter, if you have one wonderful, if not, no problems use any
glass, or cup or as I did, I took a lid of my air tight box :)
works, we don’t need to be worried not having all the tools at home.
the muffin tray as the dough is already made with a generous amount of butter
each cup around 2 tbs each, sprinkle some cheese on the top and bake in a preheated oven on 200°C for around
see as the edges get a golden color, they don’t take long to cook if you roll
them out really thin.
the thick edges which fluff up but the rest was really very fine thin and not
at all heavy.
We had it
with the tasty Plum Chutney. Need no dinner after that.
out make your life easy, I surely prefer making all sort of dough’s at home but
sometimes we need to relax and benefit from the readymade things and let the companies’
boom with high profits lol
