CHAI

CoffeeLatte

Chai is a popular drink at Biscotts and it tastes best when brewed fresh from black tea leaves, adding spices, milk and sweetener to taste. Go ahead and make a cup of chai at home using our recipe below.

Here’s how you make this magic drink at home:

GINGER CHAI:

Fresh milk (2%) – 1 1/2 cups
Fresh Ginger – crushed -1 tbsp.
Green Cardamom – 2
Black Tea Powder – 2 tsp,heaped or 2 tea bags
Brown or White Sugar – as needed

Method:

Boil milk and add peeled, crushed ginger and crushed cardamom (with skin) and tea powder.

Let it gently boil in simmer for 5-6 minutes or until you get a rich brown color and aroma. Filter using a tea strainer and add sugar.

Milk can be substituted with non-dairy options such as almond milk or soy milk.

Sit back, relax and enjoy!

PuffsImage2

Ingredients for Minced Meat filling:

Oil- 1 tbsp
Ground lamb and chicken- ½ lb
Onions, chopped- 1
Ginger-garlic paste- ½ tbsp
Chili powder- 1 tsp
Garam masala- ¾ tsp
Coriander powder- 1 tsp
Ground cumin- ½ tsp
Ground pepper- ¼ tsp
Salt- to taste
Cilantro, chopped- 2 handfuls

Other ingredients:

Puff pastry- 3 sheets (thawed)
Egg, beaten- 1

Method:

Thaw the frozen puff pastry on the kitchen counter top for a couple of hours.
Place a saucepan over medium heat, add oil.
Add onion, season with salt and saute till translucent.
Add ginger-garlic paste, saute till the raw smell goes away and the onions turn golden in color.
Add ground lamb and chicken, combine well and break any lumps.
Cook covered till the pink color disappears.
Add chili powder, garam masala, coriander powder, ground cumin and salt. Combine well and cook till the ground meat turns slightly browned. Stir fry till all the liquid has dried off, the filling should be dry.
Add chopped cilantro and mix.
Remove the saucepan from the heat, let cool down.
Cut the puff pastry sheet vertically into 3 equal rectangles. (If it’s a larger sheet cut into equal rectangles accordingly)
Cut each rectangle into two equal halves (you get 2 small rectangles).
Place 1 tbsp of minced meat filling onto the center of the smaller rectangle and fold the pastry over the filling. Wet your fingers with water and paste the edges together.
Using a fork, gently press the fork on the edges of the puff pastry to get a nice fork impression.
Beat the egg in a small bowl.
Dip a pastry brush in the beaten egg and spread over the pastry with the filling.
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Place the puff pastry on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Keep on the middle rack in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or till the puff pastry has turned crispy and golden in color.
Remove from the oven, let cool down a bit and serve warm.

PUFF PASTRY DOUGH

Ingredients:

8 ounces flour
4 ounces butter
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
3 drops lemon juice
cold water

Method:

Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl; add the lemon juice and the butter broken into pieces the size of a walnut.
Add sufficient cold water to bind the ingredients together.
Turn on to a floured board, and roll the pastry into a long strip.
Fold it in three, and press the edges together.
Half turn the pastry, rib it with the rolling pin to equalize the air in it, and again roll it into a strip.
Fold in three and repeat this until the pastry has had four rolls, folds and half-turns.
It is then ready for use.

wedding, is necessary to complete your occasion. We understand that often times, the cake is
the centerpiece on a table scape so we strive to ensure you have the most beautiful piece of
edible art on display.

We offer cakes in all shapes, sizes, servings and flavors. We even have a button on our website
for on demand customizing and ordering! We want you to focus on your event, and let us
handle the cake!

Our cakes are made with less sugar than traditional bakeries, but we promise, you will not miss
