FRENCH CROISSANTS

It was a great pleasure trying out Croissants for the first time which is just similar to the puff pastries. The dough is  layered with soft butter and then folded and rolled many times. The best combo breakfast with croissants is the butter or jam. And the fun part is you can shape them as you like :) The texture of the croissants should be soft and airy on the inside and golden coloured crusty look on outside :)
Now coming back with the recipe, I got the recipe and followed the same to same steps referring sallysbakingaddiction site. Please click Here to know the ingredients -

BELGAVI KUNDA

In north Karnataka, Belgaum kunda is one of the most popular detectable dessert. Myself being a Milk lover,  I fell in love with this sweet when I tasted for the first time when one of my best friend from belgaum visited our place. Within few days, I was just tempting to have kunda so decided to give it a try 😋

This is a milk sweet where milk is reduced, curdled and is cooked with caramelized sugar to get that bright golden colour :) Now let me tell you in advance ie huh ...All you need is to have lots of patience just to stir the mixture for the longer time 😅😅😅
INGREDIENTS

1 Liter Milk

1 Cup Curd

1 Cup Sugar (This includes 1/2 cup sugar for caramelizing )

Cardamon powder

Fried Dry fruits for garnish

Ghee (optional)

METHOD
In a deep bottomed pan. Pour the milk and bring it to boil. Reduce the flame and stir occasionally so that it does not stick to the bottom. Once the milk reduces to the 1/3rd of the original  quantity, add  1/2 cup of sugar and curd. The milk will start curdling and the whey will separate out. Keep stirring it under medium flame.
In another pan, under medium flame, add rest of the sugar. The sugar will start caramelizing. Make sure it does not get burnt. Immediately pour them into the curdling milk mixture and stir well till the consistency comes like solid mass. Add fried dry fruits and cardamom powder and serve :) Drizzle ghee on top if you prefer :)

Enjoy!!
