This super yummy Puff filled with Palm Sugar, yellow Lentil, Coconut and Cardamom is easy to make and a great snack. Traditionally it's covered with Rice flour But I used the ready made puff pastry sheets and its really a big hit.
Palm Sugar - This is a traditional unrefined non-centrifugal sugar used in Indian desserts, specially when the dessert calls for Lentil!
You can substitute with brown Sugar.

Yellow Lentil - 1/2 cup cooked
palm Sugar - 1 cup
Coconut shredded - 1/4 cup
Cardamom Powder- 1 pinch
Combine all the mixture together and cook in medium heat for 10 mins without adding water.

Cut the pastry sheet in to small squares , keep the filling in the centre and seal the ends with water.
Pre-heat the oven to 375F and bake it for 20 mins.
Melt any chocolate and give some stripes on top of it :)

Travelled to Columbus-Ohio last weekend. Sharing my food experience in the German community restaurant.
There is a German Village in the south of downtown Columbus. The highlights of the society are, so many historic German church stands out elegantly and some authentic restaurants tempt your smell buds when you cross over.
Me and DH happened to have some yum yum in 'Schmidt's' - This is the most significant restaurant in the German village. They serve too many mouth watering classic desserts and German meal.

The moment I entered in, I had my eyes fixed on this Jumbo cream puff which was on display. It was so crowded and you really need to have patience to dine in. Which I don't have :( I had the take-out of cream Puff and German Chocolate cake.
Cream puff was so yumm and the puff had a very nice texture!
We both are not a chocolate fan so dint enjoy the cake as we did with the puff. But the cake was tasting good too! Each layer of the cake was filled with enough cream glaze.
