Dil Pasand - Sweet Delicious Crunchy Sweet Puff

 
 
This is indeed my most favourite amongst everything else that is available @ Bangalore Iyengar Bakeries. Crispy and Flaky textured with yummy tutti futti filling.
 
Very easy puff to make. This yields about 4 rounds of Dil Pasand, which can be cut into
decent sized 4 pieces.
 
 



Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of fresh grated coconut (used frozen an alternative)
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • Mixture of Raisins, Cashews and Almonds (coarsely pwdrd)
  • 1 tsp Cardamom powder
  • 1/4 tspoon Nutmeg powder
  •  Puff Pastry sheets
  • 1/4 Cup of Tutti Fruitty (Colourful will look awesome)
 
Method:


1) Take a large pan, add grated coconut and fry over
medium heat for 3 to 4 mts just to remove the extra moisture.

 
2) Add sugar, mix well and cook for 3 to 4 mts.

 
3) Add cardamom powder, dry fruits, nutmeg, and mix well.

 
4) Finally add tutti fruity. Mix well and shut off the flame. Let this mixture cool to room temperature.
 
 
5) Take puff pastry sheets at room temperature.
Cut into in two rounds, one bigger and the other little
smaller in size(about an inch smaller than the other one)


 7) Put stuffing over a big one, spread evenly about an inch thickness and place another small round over filling and seal its edges using little milk.
 

8) Give it a milk wash. (Using pastry brush coat Dil pasand with milk to obtain crispy golden brown coating). You can choose to brush it with Butter or Ghee.
 

9) Now bake with edges covered facing up over 200 degrees for 30 mts.(Watch out as the timing for browning may vary from oven to oven)
 

10)After 30 minutes turn off the oven and leave it in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.
 

Take it out! Cut, Bite and Enjoy!!
