Dil Pasand (Sweet Puffs)


Dil Pasand (Sweet Puffs)

Dilpasand/Dilkush is a snack made with puff pastry and has a sweet filling.This sweet puff is found bakeries and food stalls all over South India.Back in my home town the bakeries sell two versions of this. It had the same filling of sweet coconut,nuts and tutti-fruit. The only difference was the crust It can be either flaky crispy puff pastry or a sort of rough pasty dough sometimes very close to sweet bun.If you are craving for something sweet as a tea time snack try this simple and yummy snack.


Ingredients
Pastry dough sheets-2
Egg white-1 (for the glaze)

For the filling
Shredded coconut-3/4 cup
Cashew nuts-  8-10
Raisins- a few
Glazed cherries- 1/2 cup
Tutti fruit- 2 tbs
Sugar- 2 tbs
( adjust according to your taste
 I used more of glazed cherry which was sweet)
Cardamon powder- 1/2 tsp
Ghee- 1/2 tsp




To make the filling
Heat ghee in a pan and slightly fry cashews and raisins and keep aside. Next slightly roast coconut for about a minute and add sugar. Mix sugar well and allow it to caramelize and slightly sticky . Add cardamon powder and switch off the flame. Allow the mixture to cool down completely. Add in chopped glazed cherries,tutti fruit, cashew nuts and raisins and mix well.
Preheat over to 400 degree F and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Prepare the pasty dough as per instruction. Roll it out on a flat surface and using a pasty cutter cut one circle out of each sheet. Try cutting the second circle a little smaller than the first.
To assemble place the bigger circle pastry dough on a baking pan spread the filling and place the smaller circle on top. Slightly wet the edges and seal the two layers.Gently roll the edges inwards to give decorative edges and also helps to secure it. Beat egg white with one tsp of water. With this brush lightly on top and bake for about 15 minutes or till you get a good golden color on the top. Allow to cool and enjoy!

Try this
Hope you will all enjoy
