Coconut Chocolate Pastries(Baked Puran Puri)



Welcomed by the breezy rainy monsoons,the health nut family safely reached incredible India after an expected tiring journey with a toddler in terrible 3's.It has been raining since we arrived,the wet season may not be the best season to go around the town,but definitely inviting to warm up the ovens.

The coconut pastries are baked version of the infamous deep fried puran puri.
The divine match of chocolate and coconut ,sweet and nutty ,the filling couldn't get any simpler.

what is whole wheat pastry flour?

Yasmeen said...

Anonymous,
The whole wheat pastry flour is very fine ground whole wheat flour ideal for making pastries.Available in super markets in the flour aisle.Fine ground whole wheat flour can also be used.
