Caramelised Pear Croissant Sandwich

Serves: 1

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe soft pear
  • 20 gm or 2 tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 30 gm hung curd or hung yoghurt
  • 2-3 tbsp caramel-flavoured syrup
  • Dash salt
  • Dash black pepper powder
  • Dash chilly flakes
  • 1 fresh croissant
  • Parchment paper

Method

  • Core and slice the pear into thick slices, but keep the peel.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
    Place the pear slices on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Drizzle 2 tbsp of the caramel syrup and bake in the oven until the slices are softened and caramelised, for about 10-15 minutes.
    Take out of the oven and cool.
  • Mix the hung curd with the remaining 1 tbsp caramel syrup.
    Slit the croissant lengthwise into two halves.
    Place the sliced caramelised pear slices on the face of one of the halves.
    Garnish with the chopped walnuts and a dollop of the hung curd mixture.
    Sprinkle black pepper powder, chilly flakes, salt.
    Top with the other half of the croissant to form a sandwich.
    Serve warmed.

Note: 2 cups dahi/yoghurt makes about 1 cup hung curd. And 1 cup hung curd weighs 200 gm.
