I somehow love the month of Ramadan... the weather is beautifully filled with calming energy from all the prayers around. The sun feels brighter... as if God is wide awake, looking down at each and everyone of us. It feels as if the entire nation is soaking in the prayers...
.... and amidst this blessed month, my beloved family decides to visit us!
So on a lazy Friday morning, my little Sister, Vish [btw, not so little any more ;)...] decided to make a Chilly Date Breakfast.... and with the first bit, I knew I had to share it with all of you!!!
Trust me, the dish was empty in minutes! The kids licked the plate clean!
So here you go.... Straight from Vish's Kitchen...
Smoked Salmon with Sesame,
Nigella Seeds Palmiers &
Chilly Date Spread
• 320 g sheet puff pastry
• 1 tbsp sesame seeds
• 1 tsp nigella seeds
• 120 g smoked salmon
• 4 tbs cream cheese
•40 g your favourite Chilly Date Spread
- Mark the center of pastry and tightly roll to the center of the pastry. Roll the other half similarly.
- Cut the roll into 1 cm thick slices. (you can bake immediately or you can refrigerate/freeze it for later use)
- Bake in preheated oven at 200℃/180℃ fan/gas 6 for 20-25 minutes with the cut side up. In case you are using a refrigerated roll, bake for an extra 5 minutes. Bake till it is puffed up and golden brown.
- Remove and cool on a wire rack before packing.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did :)
