KIFLI - HUNGARIAN PASTRY

My favorite Kifli is a traditional Hungarian pastry, which means 'Crescent Moon', made by cutting sheets of soft flour dough into triangular wedges and wrapping those wedges and gave a crescent shaped morsel and then baked. There are lots of variation of Kiflis. These Kiflis are buttery, flakey, very tasty and look very cute. 

INGREDIENTS (for making 12 nos pastries):
250 gms All Purpose Flour / Flour (maida)
1/2 pkt of Yeast
1 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Luke Warm Water (not too hot)
50 gms Unsalted Butter (melted)
1/2 tsp Caraway Seeds (shahjeera) & 1/2 tsp Roasted Sesame Seeds (For Decoration)

METHOD:
Add yeast and 1 tsp sugar with warm water. Set aside for 10-15 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, melted butter and mix it thoroughly.

Add luke warm water in it and knead it nicely to make a smooth dough. 

Cover it tightly and keep aside for 30-40 minutes, till it enlarge double in size.

Now takeout dough, sprinkle little flour on it. Again knead it for a minute or two. 

Divide the dough into three equal balls. Now cover it and leave for 30 minutes.

Flat each ball like a large and thick chapati, a circle of 8" diameter. Cut into 4 equal parts. Fold each part as it is shown below to make each pastry.

Preheat oven to 190 C. Line up parchment pepper on cookie sheet. Arrange pastries on it. Brush butter on each pastry, sprinkle little caraway seeds on few pastries. And also sprinkle little sesame seeds on the rest of the pastries.

Bake it for 25 minutes. Place on a wire rack and let it cool naturally. Store in a air-tight container.

Serve with warm soups. Its delicious!!! 

NOTE: May use warm milk instead of warm water.
