My First Guest Post -Chicken Tikka & Apple Cinnamon Toaster Strudel

I remember the time I started blogging about 10months ago,never did I thought blogging was so much fun filled and continous activity.Am happy to have many friends in this blogging world,a total new place and space..And Yesterday,was a big day for me for two things- first it was my first guest post featured by Ms.Wan @ Cooking Varieties and second it was my birthday !! The guest post featured is Chicken Tikka recipe,a lovely recipe which my family loves a lot . I was very happy to know that Ms.wan had posted it on my birthday in her space and when I informed her about the birthday,she immediately put up a beautiful birthday card.Thank You so much ,Ms.Wan,just loved it !! Ms.Wan is a very experienced blogger and a very good friend of mine.She has lot of information about healthy eating habits,Beneficial nutritional facts of fruits and vegetables ,a lot abut variety of flowers and plants and some times she puts up some cooking jokes to relax..Love to read all her posts,wish her all success in the blogging world too and Friends,do visit at her lovely space and the link put up to my guest post is here.

Coming back to today's recipe..Another wonder baked snack from puff pastry sheet.puff pastry sheet leave us a lot of choices .Kids will surely love this and an easy way to sneak fruits to their diet.I just loved the tasty filling and hope you will love this to!!


For the crust
puff pastry sheets 1 thawed
egg  1lightly beaten

For the filling
apples  1 peeled and cored
unsalted butter 1 1/2tbsp (divided half)
*dark brown sugar/ jaggery 1/4 cup
all-purpose flour 1/2tbsp
lemon juice 1 tsp fresh sqeezed
cinnamon powder 1/4 tsp
salt a pinch

For the icing
red icing

For the filling-
-Wash ,peel and core the apples.Grate the appes on the large holes of grater. Add in the lemon juice and keep aside.
 -Melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat in a sauce pan. Add the grated apples and toss until coated. -Add the brown sugar, flour, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt. Continue to cook stirring frequently, until the mixture is thick and syrup(took about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and stir remaining 1tablespoon of butter. Cool the filling .
For the Toaster Strudel
-Preheat oven to 375°
-Thaw the oastry sheet as per packet instructions .Unfold the sheet onto a  floured surface. Roll out the pastry to form a very large, thin rectangle. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut out 16 small rectangles or 8 bigger rectangles.
-Place hallf of the rectangles to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the apple filling into the center of the rectangle. Spread the filling evenly across the pastry, leaving a 1/2-inch space clean around the borders.
-Place the other rectangles n top and seal all sides.Brush the top with egg wash.Continue with the rest of the rectangles. Prick each strudel all over with a fork, including the sealed edges.

-Bake the strudels until puffed and golden brown, about 25-30 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack before eating. Frost and serve warm.

-For the icing, I used ready made red icing.Pipe the icing using a ziploc bag in desired shapes.

If you wish to prepare the icing then you can prepare the cream cheese frosting -
Cream cheese 2 ounces
powdered sugar 1 cup
vanilla extract 1/2 tsp
Beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract together. Spoon the glaze into a small Ziploc bag and seal. Snip a small hole in one corner of the bag and pipe desired amount onto each pastry.

Servings 8 smaller or 4 bigger toaster strudel

Happy Blogging and Have a Great Day!!
