I wanted to try something with phyllo dough. I have never worked with phyllo only because I was nervous and knew it would be a challenge for me. I have bought couple boxes and tried not to dare. Phyllo is very delicate to work with and of course I had challenge making this sweet dish. I wanted to try something new and finally I decided to use chocolate with Phyllo. A good combination to make the turnover with chocolate is strawberry or bananas.
My turnover is using Banana and Nutella. You could always replace this with Strawberry and Chocolate chips or Nutella.
Thaw the phyllo dough and unroll the dough and place this on a flat surface and cover with a damp cloth or towel to prevent from drying.
Make a paste of all purpose flour and water.
Take one to two sheets at a time and brush it with butter and place 1-2 sheets more on the top.
Cut and make the sizes for your turn over ready.
Place a spoonful of Nutella and 3-4 small pieces of banana chopped.
Apply the all purpose flour paste on the sides and seal the turnover by folding.
Apply little more butter and place them on the baking sheet.
Preheat oven at 375 or 400 F or as per the instructions on your phyllo dough.
Place the prepared turnover in the oven and bake them for 10-15 mins or till you see lite golden brown.
Serve them hot..they are delicious.
An alternate way to make this is to use wanton wrappers and deep fry them. They are delicious that way too. This version I prepared today was more health friendly and I could eat 4-5 guilt free ;-D
I wanted to make something as I was getting ready for 2013. This is for you all. A visual treat ;P
Try them and hope you like them as well.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY DEAR FRIENDS!!!
