Apple-ginger crescent rolls!


I have never made anything out of apples except for fruit custard. For the first time I tried out this chutney and it has come out really well. It tasted very similar to the mango-ginger chutney I usually make. This is my contribution to AFAM by Maheswari . It is a very simple contribution.

Ingredients
For the chutney
1 apple
2 ½ tbsp chopped ginger
3 green chillies
1tbsp Jaggery
Salt

For crescent rolls
1 Pillsbury crescent roll
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup chopped capsicum
Apple-ginger chutney
cheese spread
Butter



Preparation

Grind all the Ingredients together to make thick chutney. Do not add water to it. It tastes good with Dosa, Idly or rice. I thought of making some stuffed crescent rolls for tea.
Apply some dry flour to your hand and flatten the crescent dough evenly. Apply cheese spread on the surface of the dough and above this apply the apple-ginger spread.
Now top this with chopped tomato, capsicum and onions.
Roll them in to crescents; apply some butter on the surface. Bake it for 12-15 minutes at 375 degrees.

I also served this chutney with Dosa. It can also be served with rice, rotis and idlis.

hi Shilpa, I dont like sweet rolls or buns so always try creating something like this. Thank you.

thanks Padma, Radha, asha and Padma.

Richa, No the pal koothu is not sweet. you can add green chillies along with coconut while grinding. also pepper corns. else you can use Instant coconut powder.
