Manisha,

I tried these for one of my lunch parties. It was a huge hit.
I stumbled across it while searching something on the web.
You have an awesome website.

Gayathri, did you follow the directions on the packet for thawing the puff pastry? The temperature, too? Draining all the excess liquid from the chutney is key. It sounds like your puff pastry may have been too soggy to puff up. Also, I don't think you need to grease the baking tray but it depends on the puff pastry you are using, so check the directions on the packet for this, too.

Ovens vary and you might need to either reduce the temperature to 375F or even 350F and/or check after 7-10 minutes to ensure that the spirals are not burning.

I'm so sorry this did not work for you.
:-(

Hi Manisha,

I tried making the spirals and it dint puff at all, even the sides and the bottom and sides got burnt..Do u have any idea what I could have done wrong? I sprayed some oil spray on a cookie sheet and baked them..Appreciate any input you may have regarding this..

Thanks,
Gayathri

Jaya, we're on the same wavelength! Do update me if you find frozen puff pastry in India!

Uma, some fancy alliteration there! I was rather worse for wear that week but I am rather like that weed that won't die! Good to see you around again!

hey manisha, nice platter shattering , also palette shattering spirals. ur funny account on being vertically challenged made me less worried about the bump.ur sense of humor only got better from it.feel better soon.

2007-05-09T07:23:00.000-06:00

dear Manisha,
oh lovely spirals ,and with the green chutney its yumm..
I too have found it bit difficult to handle when its floured and Thawed ,so I also refrigerate before using any ..
well I am still looking for frozen puff pastries in India , If I come across any will definetely post about them ..
hugs and smiles
Jaya

2007-05-08T00:51:00.000-06:00

Oh wow, those look terrific! I will definitely try my hand at them for my next party.

I'm sorry about the plate -- heartbreaking, but happily not head-breaking.

I finally got around to making a couple of things from "The Language of Baklava," thanks to a nudge from Mom, who is visiting and read the book while I was at work.

I posted about it here.

Great spicy spirals...never tried or seen it before..simple and yet wonderful recipe...thanks for sharing...I haveto try this...



Zainab, hats off to you for being so enterprising!...

2007-05-04T08:30:00.000-06:00

Zainab, hats off to you for being so enterprising! I don't think I would have had half your enthusiasm!

The first time I had these spirals was at my aunt's in Wisconsin about 4 years ago. She had used mint chutney that she had pounded in her mortar-pestle so it was not watery at all. At the most, there was some lemon juice, that's it. It's the best I have ever had. The mint chutney had mint leaves, green chillies, salt and lemon juice. Too many mint leaves do give a bitter after-taste. Taste your chutney - it should be spicy and strong. If you think it will taste good in a sandwich, you're ready to roll!

I, on the other hand, do not have the patience to pound chutneys and I also prefer to make larger quantities. Which means I need to use the blender and therefore I have to add water. So draining the chutney is important. I think I am going to 'bold' that step in the instructions. I use the drained liquid from the chutneys in anything else I might be cooking at the time - dal, veggies, meat, etc.

If the dough gets soggy, wipe off all the chutney and chill it. It becomes easier to work with.

I haven't yet found my recipe for puff pastry yet. I don't know where I put it. I thought I had unpacked all the boxes last Feb but I guess I don't know where I put what! I still haven't found the drawing of the 5th Power Puff girl! But there are several recipes for homemade puff pastry. I think I will give homemade puff pastry once summer vacation starts and update this post with my findings.

And, a warm welcome to IFR!


By the way, did any of you Bombayites see the plane yet? If you do, please post pictures!!

2007-05-04T07:28:00.000-06:00

hi manisha,
i got very inspired by your green spirals and of course wasnt sure if the ready puff pastry would be available in bombay, so i ended up making my own. This was my first time and i was quite unsure of how it was to be made. but I did make some calculations which turned out right. Also however i did end up with a mess. I didnt drain the chutney, so there was watery chutney all over. then i opened up the roll and gathered all the chutney again and drained it. by then the dough had become soft and squishy. also i added mint to the chutney which i think was responsible for a bitter aftertaste in the rolls. the spirals were good but with less chutney and didnt look as wonderful as yours.

2007-05-03T12:37:00.000-06:00

Pel, I need the x-large thingee to hold the alcohol without absorbing it in any way! I'll take you though. Please bring those alu wadis and everything needed for strong shots of Toro Bravo. :-D

Thank you, Sig, for confirming that those amuse bouche thingees are teeny morsels! There is no difference between amuse gueule and amuse bouche, except that gueule is slang and more tongue-in-cheek than amuse bouche. I think.
I am not French.
Maybe that's why I think.
:-D

Anita, don't worry. I have several step-stools - so what if they are covered in paint and not really presentable - and I also have one of these which, if necessary, converts to a scaffolding ladder. So we're set! Just that I am scared of heights.

Inji, you are indeed very gifted. You picked up on all the subliminal messages, especially the value pairs in this post.

Pel, I don't see mangoes, I might need more than platform shoes for that. I might need wings. But I see a cookie. Hmmm! Yes! Yes! I see a cookie! Wonder what that is all about...

This is sooo good Manisha, I keep coming back to look at it :)

2007-05-03T09:39:00.000-06:00

Okay, I like starters then - more if I want - just getting started. (Now she too has started giving me lessons in new words!)

Now, 6'-2" tankard full of alcohol might be a tad bit too much to handle. Besides being a pain-in-the-neck with you being short and all. You don't want more pain? And you'll have to refill!



Hey amuse-gueule for non-human mouths? yiewwwwwwww...

2007-05-03T09:38:00.000-06:00

Hey amuse-gueule for non-human mouths? yiewwwwwwwww.... (I don't know how to spell yiewwwwwww but I am trying to make that disgusted noise here :)) I still don't get the difference between amuse bouche and amuse gueule!!

ISG, the difference between hors d'ouevre and amuse bouche is very simple. Cut up the hors d'ouevre into about 20 pieces and serve in tiny plates along with a microscope, that is the amuse bouche...

Manisha, hope the bump is gone now... Lesson learned, always spike the juice!
Talking about the vertically challenged, I am with you girl, I have one of those two-step ladders in the kitchen.

Thanks, Manisha and Anita now I learnt 3 new words and I am practising them as I write.
