Chicken Pastry11:45 AM
The chilly weather in here set me into cooking mode. Hence had a nice time with my lil princess in the kitchen. I almost have forgotten how to make these pastries, as haven't made them for a very long time. Maybe as long back as I was a student :)!
As I love baking, pastries are one of my favourites to make and of course to eat.
Our little chef all set to cook and bake :)!
For the topping or filling: ( I don't follow any measurements for this it's you get what you put taste, if the quantity you make turns out more than enough, you can save it for another day. Or if it turns out less, you can substitute with something you like cheese or Za'atar (oregano)))!
Sliced green chillies
Tahina(seasame seed sauce)
Pepper and salt
Heat oil in a pan, add the garlic slices and fry for awhile. Add in the chopped onions and stir fry till transcluent. Add the tomatoes, chilly and the meat. Cover and cook till the meat is tender. Open the lid and let it cook till all the liquid has been evaporated, season with salt and pepper then turn off heat. Add the tahina and lemon juice, mix well and keep aside.
For the pastry or the bun you need:
4 cups Flour
1 tbsp Instant yeast
1 tbsp Baking powder
1 tbsp Sugar
2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 Cup warm milk
1/3 Cup olive oil
Combine all the ingredients and knead into a dough. Lil princess had fun measuring the ingredients and of course breaking the egg, which almost got scattered all over her! If it had been too many of it she might have bathed in it :D!
Most of the work was done by my lil princess, and she was happy saying it around she baked a bun :)!
