Process of Bow Tie Pastry Recipe
Firstly, to prepare the bow tie pastry dough, combine all the ingredients except for the yeast and the flour in a deep bowl.
Add the yeast and add the flour slowly and knead well.
Get a soft but not sticky dough.
Then gather the dough and sprinkle some flour on it.
Cover the dough with plastic wrap and cover it again with a clean cloth then leave it to rise for 30 minutes until it gets double size.
Take mandarin size pieces from the dough and roll them in your palm (get almost 24 dough balls).
Make larger the dough balls on a slightly floured plain surface by pressing on them with your hands as big as a dessert plate.
Spread a little amount of vegetable oil on it and wrap the dough in half like a half moon.
Cut a strip in the middle of the half moon shaped dough.
Make the tips of the dough come together and roll the strip in the center of the dough and get a bow tie.
Continue with the other dough balls.
Place the bow tie pastries on a baking sheet in a tray.
Brush egg yolk on them and sprinkle some black cumin seeds in the middle on the strips you roll.
Leave the pastries to rise for 15 minutes before baking.
Then bake them in the preheated oven at 180°C until they get golden brown.
After baking, serve them hot.
