I am just back home after a month holidays in Srilanka.I guess I have missed alot on Ibles specially the Pizza contest which I was looking forward to take part., unfortunately I was on holidays :(
Here again a nice recipe of Strudel Pasties Savoury from the famous Dr Oetker from Germany.
The strudel dough is very nice ,you can use this dough for other stuffs too.
Preparation time - about 45 min excluding resting time
Baking time 20 min
Step 1: Ingredients
For the Strudel
250 Gr all purpose flour
1 Pinch Salt
100 ml lukewarm water
1 medium egg
2 tspoon cooking oil
Freshly ground black pepper
For the Filling
500 Gr Aubergines
2 tablespoons cooking oil
60 gr Salami
3 cloves garlic
Freshly ground black pepper
50 gr butter
Step 2: Prepare the Dough
To make the dough,shift the flour into a mixing bowl.Add the other ingredients for the dough and stir with a hand mixer with a kneading hook.First briefly at the lowest setting,then at the hightest setting to make a smooth dough.As for pepper you can add the way you want it.I added more as I like to eat really hot spicy stuffs.
Step 3: Resting Time 30 Min
Boil some water in a small pan,pour out the water away and wipe dry,put the dough in the hot pan lined with baking parchment.Cover with the lid and set a side for 30 minutes.
Step 4: Prepare the Filling
Wash the. Aubergines and wipe dry,Cut of the ends and finely chop the aubergines.Heat the oil add the aubergines and fry on slow fire.Peel and crush the garlic.Add to the aubergines.Let it cook on slow fire until it reduces into half quantity.Time to time stir the Aubergines.
Finely chop the salami and add this too.Season with salt and freshly grounded pepper and let it cool.
**Even though the recipe gives 2table spoon oil,I used a little bit more ,so that the Aubergines cook fast with out getting caught to the pan.
Step 5: Set Oven
Set your oven to :
Top/Bottom heat about 200°C/400° F (Preheated)
Prepare your baking sheet
Step 6: Filling
Roll out the dough to a rectangle of 60X30 cm on a large floured surface.Cut in to 18 squares of 10x10cm.Put some filling on half of each square,then fold the other half on top and press the edges together.
I have rolled them out in different sizes as it was done just for me and for my husband.When you are making for guests please make sure to have them on the above size or up to you to decide how big/small you want.Pasties are made big
Step 7: Bake
Arrange the Pasties on the baking sheet,melt the butter and brush on top of the pasties.Bake for 20 minutes.
Brush the Pasties with the rest of the butter while they are baking.
Step 8: Done
Hmm..These spots are due to the butter.I applied alot to make it brown. They are not burnt !!
Serve the Strudel Pasties warm.They go well with chillie paste and tomatoe sauce mixed together. Enjoy
