I read about these delicious Crescents in Radhika's blog Tickling Palates. So beautiful were they that I decided to make them immediately! (By the way, the picture above is from Radhika's blog!)
for the crescents --
All purpose flour - 200 grams ( 2 cups)
Milk - 50-60 ml
Cottage Cheese / Paneer - 100 grams
Yeast - 2 teaspoons
Sugar - 2 teaspoons
Salt - to taste (1/2 - 3/4 tablespoon)
Melted Butter - 2 tablespoon
for the garnish / flavor --
You can experiment with the flavors. Use any spices you want. I used the Chaat Powder for a few & for a few, I used Oregano & Chili Flakes. You can also add coriander / parsley leaves or mint leaves too.
1. PROOFING THE YEAST - Add the sugar to warm milk and mix well. Add the dry yeast and mix well. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes. It becomes nice & frothy!
ALAS!! A terrible thing happened! :-( As I was ready to keep the tray into my oven, the plug burst!!! I didn't know what to do for 10 minutes!
If you are doubtful about making them, once again, take a look at how beautiful they look - :-D
And if you are wondering what the title was all about, I am holding a FUNERAL for my wonderful Philips OVEN who is no more! :'( If you wish to express your sympathy, you could send cakes as a token of your appreciation for my oven's long-standing services! :-D ☻
