If you have ever been to coffee day, and diligently lingered on those smoky, vegetable stuffed croissants, you will understand the reason behind my post-title. Yes! The soft-sweet croissants with the spicy stuffing made me a coffee-day fanatic.
But I never took it to making them at home, not until..couple of days back. When I came across 'Crescent Samosas', yes, that's how they named it in the 'tasteofhome' magazine, it unknowingly kindled my remembrance of those tasty eat-outs. So, here I am.
Followed the same procedure as mentioned in the recipe, with an authentic-samosa stuffing. You can try using your own savory or the kids-friendly sweet stuffing. Do watch this video, if your are not familiar with rolling the crescents.
I used 1 Can(8-0z) reduced-fat crescent rolls [I used Pillsbury Crescent]. Contains 8-triangles.
- Potato - 1 medium boiled and cubed
- Onion - 1 medium finely chopped
- Green peas frozen -1/2 cup
- Carrot - 1/2 cup frozen(Optional)
- Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
- Garlic - 1 clove chopped
- Green chili -1 chopped
- Coriander powder - 1 tsp
- Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
- Amchur powder - 1/2 tsp
- Grouded fresh pepper corns - 1/2 tsp
In a pan, saute the cumin seeds, green chili, garlic and onion in oil until lightly browned. Stir in the peas, carrot and potato. Add the coriander powder, armchur powder and pepper. Transfer to a bowl and lightly mash them Sprinkle with garam masala.
Separate the crescent dough into 8 triangles. Place 1 tablespoon of the stuffing on the wide end of each triangle; roll from the wide end and curve at the edges to form the crescent shape. Make sure to keep the pointed-end underneath when arranging on a baking sheet. Use an un-greased baking sheet.
Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes as per the instructions on the tube or until golden brown.
