I had some cream horn moulds gifted to me last year and I thought to make use of them for the recipe. You can get them at Amazon or Ebay very easily!Cream horns are like Cream Rolls easily available in bakeries across India.Sheets of Puff Pastry are wrapped around conical metal moulds and baked after which they are hollow and crispy cones.Thereafter they are either filled with sweet pastry cream or whipping cream and topped with a glace cherry. But here I decided to do a savoury filling with Corn and cheese.I fried some besan in butter and then added corn and seasoning,filled it in the empty pastry moulds,gave a topping of cheese and put them in the oven to melt the cheese.The result – crispy pastry cones with a delicious filling inside – something totally new to serve guests and ourselves!

Notes

NOTE : You can substitute the cream horn moulds with metal Kulfi moulds.Be sure to join the pastry at the narrow end so prevent the filling from falling out!They give an equivalent perfection!

I am a passionate foodie who loves to cook, serve and love to see people relishing my creations. Since the time I was small I used to wonder about the 'how' of things in the kitchen.

Then when I finally ventured as an unprofessional kitchen helper for my late grand-mother (a par excellent cook in her own generation) I was fascinated by the amount of stuff you could do to a simple milk and rice to form a most yummy pudding.

Here I am sharing my recipes with a will to learn from some and educate others as well!
